Overview

The OHSU South PACU provides 24/7 perianesthesia care to adult patients as well as some pediatric patients. The department cares for Ambulatory, Acute Care, and Critical Care patients arriving from home, the emergency department, or from the In-Patient setting and prepares them for surgery or other procedures. We also recover patients from anesthesia after their surgeries and transition them to the inpatient setting or discharge them home. OHSU is a Magnet designated hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center, and the only Academic Medical Center in the state of Oregon. The PeriAnesthesia nurses are responsible for assessing patient and family needs, planning and coordinating care, and for consultation of interdisciplinary services. Procedures and treatments provided in the PeriAnesthesia Department include but are not limited to: placing venous access, drawing bloodwork, medication administration, fluid and blood administration, radiography, ultrasonography, intubation, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Patient population and diagnoses vary from minor to critical to include both elective and emergent surgeries. The PeriAnesthesia Team works to determine level of care based on patient stability, discharge appropriateness, and resource and referral allocation. The nurse-to-patient ratio is 1:1 to 1:4 based on ASPAN standards and the patient's dynamic stability and acuity.
