Kerri Forman

Surgical Technologist

Kerri Forman grew up in East Greenwich, RI, but currently lives in Chepachet, RI with her fiance and daughter. After high school, she attended the New England Institute of Technology where she received her Associate of Science with a specialty in Surgical Technology. She graduated in 2011 and began working at Our Lady of Fatima Hospital full time as a Certified Surgical Technologist in the Operating Room. Neurosurgery was always one of her favorite surgeries to scrub in at Fatima, where she had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Das and Mohini Yalanis RNP. She quickly became the main surgical tech that scrubbed with Dr. Das on his cases. After 6 years of working at Fatima, Dr. Das offered Kerri a full-time job to come work for him at BSNI and, of course, was highly honored and accepted. Kerri still works per diem at Fatima as she feels that maintaining her skills and basic knowledge as a surgical tech is very beneficial for the patients. She is better able to answer or explain questions about surgery that patients may have.

Kerri’s position at BSNI is one of many tasks, but most often assists Dr. Das in his clinics when he sees patients or performs injections. When she is not in the office, Kerri works for an Intraoperative Monitoring Company and specializes in monitoring Neurosurgery cases in the operating room of various hospitals. As an Intraoperative Monitoring Technologist, Kerri has been able to bring even more knowledge of Neurosurgery to BSNI, which benefits patients that come into the office with surgical appointments. Kerri is able to ease any questions or concerns about surgery’s physical aspects.

When she is not working, Kerri loves to spend time with her daughter and fiance. She comments, “living in Chepachet ‘Foster/Gloucester’ is incredible. There is always something to do.” Some of her activities are hiking the local trails, swimming, and hanging out on the boat at the spring-fed pond near her home. She calls it her “little oasis from reality.” When she really want to kick it up a notch, Kerri has tons of family and friends over for a BBQ and a round of lawn games so everyone can enjoy the area she calls home.
