What You Will Do
Who are we?
The Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) is within St Vincent Hospital. We provide post-surgical and anesthesia care to both outpatients and inpatients following a variety of surgeries and procedures. We take care of many different patient types including critical care patients. We are passionate about what we do and are committed to making the surgical experience easier and less stressful for patient and caregiver.
As an RN in this area, you will provide direct nursing care and support for post-operative patients. This recovery phase of the surgical experience extends from the time the patient is transferred out of the OR until they successfully meet discharge criteria and proceed to the IP unit or phase 2 recovery and discharged from the hospital. You will perform careful assessments and immediate interventions in assisting the patient to recover quickly, safely and as comfortably as possible.
What You Will Do:
Provide direct nursing care for patients in the post-operative period
Support and educate patients/families regarding procedure and plan of care
Evaluate patient responses to treatments and interventions
Monitor, record and communicate patient condition as appropriate through post-anesthesia recovery
Work collaboratively with team members
Follow guidelines according to the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) and the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses (ASPAN)
Excellent multi-tasking, communication skills and a desire to provide excellent customer service are necessary
