|Final Exam Date||May 9, 2019 - 11:00 AM|
90 - 100 = A 80 - 89 = B 75 - 79 = C 60 -74 = D Below 60 = F
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)
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 students 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.
|Attendance Policy||Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. A student with three absences may be dropped from class.|
|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 the Office for Disability Services Coordinator, Room 231, in the Madison Monroe Building. The phone number is (409) 984-6241.|
