Hello to all of you PACU nurses,
Today I accepted a new job in PACU. My background is Med/Surg ICU with
some dabbling in CVICU for the past 5 years. You will start to see me hanging
out more in this forum.
I will be in phase 1 PACU in a level 1 trauma hospital. Can any of you give me
some helpful hints that are good to know in the PACU? I know I will be giving
huge amounts of narcotics and need to ship out pts ASAP.
They specifically were looking for nurses with an ICU background which leads
me to believe that there are a lot of ICU hold overs in PACU. What
do you all think?
TIA for any feedback!
