HB 1935 -- Surgical Technologists

Sponsor:  May

This bill specifies that "surgical technology" means
intraoperative care that involves preparing the operating room
for surgical procedures including the equipment and supplies and
assisting in surgical procedures.  No person may practice
surgical technology in a health care facility unless he or she

performs tasks during surgery according to its health care
