Post-Anesthesia Care Unit - PACU Nurse - (PACU RN)
StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: 10 D Pay Rate: $31.00 - 33.00

This medical center is an 89-bed facility that opened in its present location in 1983. The hospital is fully accredited by The Joint Commission, licensed by the state of Wyoming and approved for the acceptance of Medicare patients. It features a full-time Level IV Emergency Room, a Level II Nursery, a Behavioral Health Program and a Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit. State-of-the-art medical equipment includes Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Digital Mammography. The hospital has a number of physicians specializing in Otolaryngology (ENT), General Surgery, Urology, Orthopedics, Psychiatry, and Neurology. It is also the first hospital in the state to be approved as a provider under the Wyoming Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.


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.
