Post-Anesthesia Care Unit - PACU Nurse - (PACU RN)
StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 10 D Pay Rate: $30.00 - 32.00

This RN must have 3-5 years of an experience-combination of med/surg, critical care, emergency or PACU. These nurses handle patients who are having surgery and will probably be admitted for a couple of days afterwards. Their experience in these areas would prepare them for what they must handle. We have to have RNs with strong experience. Start date preferably mid-Sept

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.
