In our Radiology dept after a patient has had General Anesthesia (usually for a kyphoplasty, MRI, some CT's), we call PACU and they will do Phase one of the recovery. Lately it has become an issue where PACU wants us to be there for induction and recovery, and they feel they don't need to be involved. This is creating tension as we are not trained in PACU.
I am curious how others are dealing with the recovery of Gen Anesth. patients?
