Job Description & Requirements

Job Description PACU nurses work within a post-anesthesia care unit (formerly known as the recovery room), where patients are cared for and monitored as they recover from the effects of anesthesia. PACU nurse responsibilities include all aspects of patient care following surgery. This care includes monitoring heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and respiration, as well as managing the pain and nausea that often follow anesthesia. The surgical site itself requires ongoing evaluation for potential bleeding or other pathological indications. The PACU nurse is in charge of assessing the patient’s overall condition during the delicate post-anesthesia period, providing care and intervention as needed. Documentation and patient education are also components of this critical nursing discipline. In outpatient surgical settings, it’s the PACU nurse who instructs patients in self-care techniques following the procedure. Apply today to learn about what we can offer you. Please contact Enza Rebecchi, Recruiter at Vincenza_Rebecchi@chs.net for more details.
