Our open hearts are recovered in CCU. They never even see PACU. We also recover fem-pops and some carotids depending on their complexity.

i hear you cleveland- we have the same situation. very complex pts that end up as chronics. no one wants to take care of the confused climbing OOB trached pegged train wreck with the psycho family for the 4th shift in a row (don't flame me, you know it's true). CV recovery sounds like a dream job! maybe when i'm a few years into this unit i'll join you in naples... mmm beaches...

Our post hearts too go directly from OR to CCU to be recovered there. I do not know of any programs that recover patients in PACU. I think it probably was done before but now that we know better it's done right in the unit.
