A P R I L 2 0 1 9 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y. N E T • 1 4 5 M ore and more, I wonder if I'm still outpatient surgery material. I don't mean writing for Outpatient Surgery Magazine, but rather keeping up with all those pretty, perky nurses and all those dash- ing, dexterous sur- geons cranking out all those short, same-day cases. Have I stayed too long at the party? Have I officially become the cranky, crotchety old nurse I swore I'd never be? You know, the one who has to have things done a certain way because it's always been done a certain way. Or maybe a part of me yearns for the golden olden days of the Main OR. I'll admit, I prefer the longer cases with the slower surgeons. The youngsters bang their heads against the wall when assigned to Dr. Molasses. Me? I clap my hands and jump up and down with my good Behind Closed Doors Paula Watkins, RN The Way We Were Longing for the golden olden days of the Main OR.
