Put simply a Recovery nurse looks after the wellbeing of a patient after surgery. We monitor vial signs, particularly the airway, provide support as required, pain relief, monitor wounds and drains, seek appropriate help as required from Drs if anything is amiss. The work can be stressful but fulfilling. Get a challenging patient and see them through a rocky time and back to the ward can be great.
Is there anything more specific you want to know?
