This position presents an opportunity to join a highly regarded team of passionate physicians and nurses within the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). The candidate for this role will have the opportunity to work in an innovative, positive, and professionally challenging work environment at this top-ranked facility.
The role of the post-anesthesia care unit nurse (PACU nurse) is to provide care for post-operative patients recovering from anesthesia, including general, regional, and local. The PACU RN treats inpatients and outpatients according to their needs, monitoring their vital signs to determine necessary care. (Postoperative nausea is a commonly treated symptom.) Due to the possibility of rapid changes in a patient’s physiological condition, PACU RNs are required to administer diligent care via monitoring, assessment, intervention, and continuous reassessment.
