Post Anesthesia Care Unit
Patients recover in this area. All caregivers are trained in adult and pediatric advanced life support, as well as cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Nursing personnel work with physicians and other health care providers to ensure a successful recovery period and safe transfer to an inpatient unit.
