PRE-OP/PACU RN-FT

  • Job ID 2693
  • Date posted 04/05/2019
Description:

We are looking for a top-performer with solid knowledge of Pre-operative and PACU Nursing.  This is a fast paced environment that is driven to reach the highest quality and satisfaction outcomes in Florida. Must have ASC experience. This is a PRN position, with variable hours. No weekends, no holidays. 

Job Summary: A Pre-Op/PACU RN is a vital member of the team. This role is two-fold; this role requires the skill set of both pre-op RN and post-op RN. Pre-op nurses are responsible for providing nursing assistance in surgical settings during the pre-operative phase of patient care. PACU nurses work within a post-anesthesia care unit (also known as the recovery room), where patients are cared for and monitored as they recover from the effects of anesthesia. PACU nurse responsibilities include all aspects of patient care following surgery. This care includes monitoring heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and respiration, as well as managing the pain and nausea that often follow anesthesia. The surgical site itself requires ongoing evaluation for potential bleeding or other pathological indications. The PACU RN is in charge of assessing the patient’s overall condition during the delicate post-anesthesia period, providing care and intervention as needed. Documentation and patient education are also components of this critical nursing discipline. In outpatient surgical settings, it’s the PACU nurse who instructs patients in self-care techniques following the procedure.
