Surgical First Assistant

Surgical First Assistant is a licensed health profession in Nebraska. Surgical first assistants promote patient safety through provision of primary assistance to the primary surgeon during a surgical procedure. This includes providing assistance to ensure a safe surgical environment and maximize patient safety by using appropriate techniques for processes such as maintaining hemostasis, proper patient positioning, clear visualization of the operative site, proper closure of the operative site, and correct dressing of a wound; and it is necessary to encourage the most effective utilization of the skills of surgical first assistants by enabling them to perform tasks under  the personal supervision of a licensed physician during a surgical procedure.
