Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) - Recovery Room
Patients having surgery will be transferred from the operating room to the PACU for their initial recovery from anesthesia. Also known as the “Wake Up Room”, patients are carefully monitored during the emergence period from anesthesia.
The specially trained pediatric nursing staff assesses pain, provides appropriate medical management and stabilizes the patient post anesthesia. Continuous monitoring is provided and upon completion of the recovery period the patient is then transferred to the appropriate floor or unit.
