Lone Working in the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit is Patient Care Compromised?

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  25 February 2009

Extract

This article discusses staffing levels in the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit, following key recommendations that have been documented in response to the changing nature of both anaesthesia and surgery. An audit was carried out at the unit in York Hospital to determine whether the staff felt that patient care and staff vulnerability was compromised during times when the Recovery nurse worked alone.
