The Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (Recovery) is part of theatres and manages patients in the immediate post-anaesthetic period. The unit sees a mixture of paediatric and adult patients undergoing day and inpatient procedures over a range of specialities to include those patients needing Critical Care.
We are a small and friendly team with a real involvement in our unit and a commitment to our patients and to the wider theatre team.
You will be a qualified nurse/ODP who is flexible in your approach to the way you work and have the resilience to cope with the demands of intermittent, increased turnover. Our workload is flexible and varied with typical stays of between 30 minutes and 2 hours, but also overnight High Dependency Care is provided too.
You must be willing to work a range of shifts to cover the 7 days, 24 hour service and be happy to work closely with a multidisciplinary team as well as to work alone once competent. The right candidate will be offered a comprehensive orientation and competency package with the support of a professional buddy.
