Cross training from or to PACU

  1. I am a PACU nurse, our OR has eight procedure rooms. Our ASC unit has 16 beds plus covers PAC & outpatient infusion clinic. We recently were required to cross train from the PACU to ASC. Our responsibilities were mostly post-op care and discharge. Do other hospitals have similar programs? How do you handle the precepting and how do the PACU nurses maintain competency?
