Survey: ASC volumes continue to rise amid staffing challenges

By: Cynthia Saver, MS, RN

ASC leaders continue to see increased surgical volumes but are finding it difficult to staff their centers, according to the 2023 OR Manager Salary/Career Survey. More than half (56%) of respondents reported increased volume in the past 12 months, the same as last year. Yet the ability to recruit new staff remains a challenge, with more than two-thirds (68%) reporting that recruiting experienced OR nurses is more difficult than 12 months ago. Recruiting surgical technologists (STs) is also challenging, with 69% of respondents finding recruitment more difficult.
