Colorado is now one of about six U.S. states requiring the registration and licensing of surgical technologists and surgical assistants. The new law, effective April 1, 2011, will help ensure hospitals and surgery centers do not inadvertently hire surgical technologists with a criminal background or with a history of jeopardizing patient safety. Additionally, the legislation will allow employers to share information with other potential healthcare employers concerning impaired work function, drug diversion, patient abuse and violent crimes.

The legislation is significant, said State Representatives Debbie Benefield and Sara Gagliardi, drafters of the new law.

“Our bill will require surgical technicians to be registered with the state before working with patients. Employers must verify with the state that a prospective employee’s [surgical technologists and technicians, surg assistants] registration is in good standing before he/she can start working in an operating room. Additionally, if a surgical technologist or assistant is fired or disciplined, the employer must report this information to the state within two weeks,” lawmakers told when drafting their bill.
