Coronavirus disease is spreading rapidly all over the world and country managers and researchers, especially healthcare professionals, create various policies and procedures in order to prevent the recurrence of this disease, which is applied in appropriate waves and is rapidly spreading in waves. The surgical nurse is responsible for the preparation of the patient who will be operated on for preoperative surgery, care and preparation during the operation, postoperative intensive care or clinic. In all these processes, the surgical nurse, who is a member of the surgical team, must accept the patients as infected and intervene accordingly. It is necessary to conduct a coronavirus test at regular intervals of the surgical team that provides care and treatment for patients who have positive coronavirus test, to ensure their work with personnel protective equipment, and to minimize equipment shortage, and to update the care and treatment of patients who have positive coronavirus test with in-service training. Joint protocols should be determined to discharge patients with positive coronavirus tests without any risk for both the surgical team and other patients in the hospital. The purpose of this article, which is compiled based on all these literature information, is to contribute to the roles and responsibilities of the surgical nurse in the pandemic process.
