PACU preceptorship at a women's hospital

  1. 0 I was just assigned to a 5 week assignment in the PACU of a women's hospital. I know the majority of patients will be c-sections with regional anesthesia, as well as post hysterectomies. I wasn't sure what other type of patients I might anticipate treating. I will admit I was surprised with this particular assignment, as I did not express an interest in women's medicine.

    What can I anticipate a typical day to entail? My preceptor works day shift, during the week. Will I be during more then taking vitals and monitoring pain, bleeding?

    Thank you!
