you'd be amazed how many medical professionals don't know what a BAHA even is - but then again, most have no reason to know.
As I mentioned before, the hospital my doc did my surgery at wasn't his "usual hospital" - so I was a first there. I had almost every nurse in the OR outpatient holding area coming over to my little cubicle asking me what BAHA surgery was and why I was having it. I was a celebrity of sorts
There was one nurse who told me she read all about the procedure the night before on the internet because she'd seen it on the schedule and had no idea what it was. I thought it showed a lot of initiative on her part and I even wrote the director of the outpatient surgical area and told her so.
In the OR my doc spent some time explaining to the nurses what he was doing, which I thought was kind of cool. I felt great that I could be a "hands on" learning exhibit for others.
Sounds like you'll be charting new territory too
