RECOVERY ROOM (PACU-Post Anesthesia Care Unit)

 

Recovery Room   Post Operative Orders

When the patient's surgery is completed, he or she is taken to PACU until they are stable enough to go to the regular hospital room. If the patient is going to the Intensive Care Unit, many times the patient bypasses PACU and goes directly to the ICU. Here the post-operative orders are reviewed and begun.
