Hi, I am a PACU nurse and work primarily evening and weekends. During the weekdays all pre op patients go to the preop dept to get ready for surgery. On off hours pts come to PACU since that dept is closed. We have been doing more and more surgeries on off hours and it has become a big issue between the OR and PACU as to which dept is responsible for preoping the pts. I'm wondering how this is handled in other hospitals??? Thank you!
