|Course Grading Scale||90 - 100=A 80 - 89=B 70 - 79=C 60 - 69=D Below 59 = F|
|Determination of Final Grade||
Grade will be given as Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory by compliance with course objective and clinical evaluations.
1. The Final Grade will be posted through the school computer system.
2. Evaluations are based on course objectives.
3. Clinical Skills check-offs be performed on campus and at clinical locations.
4. Students will be graded on clinical performance, and procedure sheet. Students performance will be evaluated by both preceptors and clinical instructor. Students are expected to perform the following surgical skills correctly:
FIRST SCRUB: ( All Five Criteria)
• Verify supplies and equipment needed for the surgical procedure.
• Set up the sterile field with instruments, supplies, equipment, medication(s) and solutions needed for the procedure.
• Perform counts with circulator prior to the procedure and before the incision is closed.
• Pass instruments and supplies to the sterile surgical team members during the procedure.
• Maintain sterile technique as measured by recognized breaks in technique and demonstrate knowledge of how to correct with appropriate technique.
SECOND SCRUB: ( active participant in entire case- not met all criteria for first scrub but has completed any of the following)
• Cutting Suture
• Holding Retractors
• Manipulating Endoscopic Camera
OBSERVATION: (Student did not met criteria for first or second scrub)
Student observed case in the OR – not counted as toward required case count but documented by program.
5. Clinical procedure sheets are to be completed and signed each day before leaving the hospital.
6. Students are expected to complete a total of 120 scrubbed procedures during the combined semesters of SRGT 1461 Clinical Practice I and SRGT 1462 Clinical Practice II.
• The total number of cases the student must complete is 120
• Students are required to complete 30 cases in General Surgery. Twenty of the cases must be First Scrub Role.
• Students are required to complete 90 cases in various surgical specialties. Sixty of the cases must be First Scrub Role and evenly distributed between a minimum of four surgical specialties.
• The Surgical Technology Program is required to verify through the surgical rotation documentation the student’s progression in First and Second Scrubbing surgical procedures of increased complexity as he/she moves toward entry level graduate abilities.
• Diagnostic endoscopy cases and vaginal delivery cases are not mandatory, but up to 10 diagnostic endoscopy cases and 5 vaginal delivery cases can be counted toward the maximum number of second scrub role cases.
• Observation cases must be documented, but do not count toward the 120 required cases.
7. COUNTING CASES- Cases will be counted according to surgical specialty. Examples:
Trauma patients that require a splenectomy and a repair of a Lefort 1 fracture. Two cases can be counted and documented since the splenectomy is in the general surgery specialty and the repair of the Lefort I fracture is Oral-maxillofacial specialty.
Patients require a breast biopsy followed by mastectomy. It is one pathology, breast cancer, and the specialty is general surgery; therefore it is counted and documented as one procedure-one case.
8. Students not completing a minimum of 120 cases scrubbed in General, Genitourinary, Gynecology, Orthopedic, and Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeries will be reviewed by the (NBSTSA) National Board of Surgical Technology And Surgical Assisting to determine eligibility to test for certification.

|Academic Honesty||Academic honesty is expected from all students, and dishonesty in any form will not be tolerated. Please consult the LSC-PA policies (Section IX, subsection A, in the Faculty Handbook) for consequences of academic dishonesty.|
|ADA Considerations||The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Special Populations Coordinator, Room 231, in the Madison Monroe Building. The phone number is (409) 984-6241.|
Some material in this course may be copyrighted. They may be used only for instructional purposes this semester,
by students enrolled in this course. These materials are being used fairly and legally.
No one may distribute or share these copyrighted materials in any medium or format with anyone outside this class,
including publishing essays with copyrighted material, uploading copyrighted material to Facebook or YouTube, or
painting or performing copyrighted material for public display.
Copyright violation is not the same thing as plagiarism. Plagiarism is intellectual dishonesty. Offenses of plagiarism result in lower grades or failing scores, and professors and the college strictly enforce plagiarism rules. There is never any acceptable use of plagiarism. Copyright violation is a legal offense, punishable by large fines and penalties.
Copyrighted material can be used if permission from the material’s creator is obtained, or if its use meets the standards of fair use in an educational setting. For example, a student can quote a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a report without violating copyright but still be guilty of plagiarism if the quotation is not properly documented.
If you are in doubt about what material can be freely used, ask your professor or contact the Dean of Library Services, at (409) 984-6216.
Assessment is a process by which LSCPA can help you learn better and gauge the level of progress you have made to
attain knowledge, skills, beliefs, and values. It also helps your professors understand how to improve teaching
and testing methods in your classes, and it helps each department understand and improve degree and certificate
Periodically LSC-PA will collect assessment data for research and reporting purposes, including statistical data and sometimes copies of your work. Be assured that all material the college uses for assessment purposes will be kept confidential. To ensure anonymity, your name will be removed from any material we use for assessment purposes, including video-recorded performances, speeches, and projects.
If you object to allowing LSC-PA to use your material for assessment purposes, submit a letter stating so to your professor by the 12th class day. You will still be required to participate in whatever assessments are being done; we just won’t use your data.
What’s the difference between assessment and grades? The grades you get on papers, projects, speeches, and assignments are specific types of focused assessment. LSC-PA’s assessment efforts include class grades, surveys, standardized tests, and other tools.
Federal privacy laws apply to college students. This means that college employees, including instructors, cannot
divulge information to third parties, including parents and legal guardians of students. Even if the students are
minors, information about their college work cannot be shared with anyone except in very limited circumstances.
Anyone requesting information about a student should be referred to the Registrar. Instructors will be notified in writing by that Office about what information may be released and to whom.
Please remember that releasing private information about a student, however innocuous it may seem, can be a violation of federal law, with very serious consequences.
Circumstances under which information may be released:
An adult student may submit, to the Registrar, a handwritten, signed note granting permission for release of
information. The note must specify what information may be divulged, and it must specify the name of the person
to whom the information may be given.
The Registrar’s office is located in the Student Center room 303B, and can be reached at (409) 984-6165.
This course helps add to the students’ overall collegiate experience in the following ways:
|Degree Plan Evaluation||
A Degree Plan Evaluation will help you determine which classes you need to complete your program.
All of the classes that you have taken that apply to your declared major will be listed on the right. If you have a class that still needs to be completed, a “NO” will be listed on the right next to the required class.
