Scrub Lab at Skyline College For the second year students we are now in our Medical-Surgical rotation. We were lucky enough to have a scrub lab at Skyline College with Alice Erskine and her students. Alice is the instructor for the surgical technician program. They have a very nice facility and lab we were able to see. Alice demonstrated many skills and we were able to practice. We practiced donning and doffing gowns, gloves and other PPE equipment. We were also taught how to scrub in for a surgical procedure. We were supplied with all the necessary supplies to do so. She was very informative and we learned a lot! Her students were the same and helped us throughout the entire process. I have to say it was a great opportunity and I am glad we were able to have that experience!Mylene Magallanes
