PA assisting my surgeon was a surprise

Yes, I get a little crazy about these things. I hear you. The statement "There were no other attending, fellows or surgical residents available to scrub" – what is the meaning? Sounds like they were short of staff (?) Are you a medical professional? Thank you for your explanation – it has helped significantly already.

@tennisgolf I hear what your concern is I have worked in the operating theater as a scrub nurse you have the surgeons,anesthesiologist another room nurse so it's not that there isn't anyone else there ,when the primary surgeon is done operating its not unusual to let the other surgeon close up for his especially if he is called out on a emergency .All the Dr,s and everyone concerned have that person's best interest at heart.
