At Banner Lassen Medical Center, there are four primary groups that make up our team:
- Pre-op Holding
Patients will be escorted to this area after reporting to admitting.
- Operating Room
State-of-the-art Operating Rooms with up-to-date monitoring capabilities
- Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU)
Patients recover in this area. All caregivers are trained in adult and pediatric advanced life support, as well as cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Nursing personnel work in collaboration with physicians and other health care providers to ensure a successful recovery period and safe transfer to an inpatient unit.
- Sterile Processing Department (SPD)
The sterile processing department is a little-known hospital area. Our sterilization professionals are dedicated to ensuring that all of the instruments, equipment and supplies used in the operating room are completely germ-free and sterile for all surgeries performed.
