Post Anesthesia Recovery Unit

Post anesthesia recovery unit

  • This area will be used to take care of you immediately after surgery.
  • There are bright lights and much activity.
  • Your nurse will look at your surgical area and check your body systems.
  • Remember, it is expected that you will have some pain after surgery.
  • Your nurse will ask you to rate your pain from 0 (no pain) to 10 (severe pain).  Medication will be given as ordered by your doctor.
  • Verbal and written after-surgery instructions will be given to you and the person taking you home.
  • With all types of anesthesia, you may be a little sleepy at discharge.  Go directly home and get rest in your own comfortable surroundings.  Since you may be a little unsteady, you will still need assistance when you get up.
