Post Surgery Ward

The Post-Surgery Ward, also known as the Post-Anaesthesia Care Unit (PACU) or Recovery Room, is a specialized area within a hospital designed to provide immediate postoperative care to patients who have undergone surgical procedures. This critical phase of care focuses on monitoring patients as they emerge from anaesthesia, managing pain, and ensuring a smooth transition to the next level of care.

16 beds with central O2 supply, ventilators, infusion pump, NIBP, and defibrillators.

The department of Anesthesiology is manned with well-trained and experienced Anesthesiologist & fully equipped with Boyle’s apparatus, central O2 supply, NIBP/ETCO2 /SPO2, monitors

Key Features of the Post-Surgery Ward:

  • Post-Anaesthesia Monitoring: Patients are closely monitored as they recover from anaesthesia, with a focus on vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation. Continuous assessment allows healthcare providers to identify and address any immediate postoperative concerns.
  • Pain Management: Pain management is a priority in the post-surgery ward. Healthcare professionals assess and address pain levels, administering medications as needed to ensure patient comfort. Individualized pain management plans are tailored to each patient's condition and preferences.
  • Airway Management: Since patients may still be recovering from the effects of anaesthesia, airway management is closely monitored. Respiratory support may be provided, and any signs of respiratory distress are promptly addressed by the healthcare team.
  • Temperature Control: Maintaining a stable body temperature is crucial during the postoperative period. The ward is equipped with warming devices to prevent hypothermia, especially in patients who may have experienced prolonged exposure during surgery.
  • Recovery from Anaesthesia: Patients are monitored for signs of awakening and recovery from anaesthesia. The healthcare team ensures a smooth transition as patients regain consciousness, addressing any immediate post-anaesthetic side effects or complications.
  • Postoperative Assessment: Comprehensive assessments are conducted to evaluate the surgical site, monitor for signs of bleeding or infection, and assess overall surgical outcomes. Any concerns are promptly communicated to the surgical team for further evaluation.
  • Fluid Management: Intravenous fluids may be administered to maintain hydration and support the patient's recovery. Fluid balance is closely monitored to address any shifts or imbalances that may occur.
  • Patient Education: As patients awaken and become more alert, the post-surgery ward provides education regarding postoperative care, including instructions on mobility, pain management at home, and signs of potential complications that require medical attention.
  • Family Support: Family members are often allowed to join patients in the post-surgery ward once the initial recovery phase is complete. The healthcare team provides information, addresses concerns, and ensures a supportive environment for both patients and their families.
  • Transition to Next Level of Care: Once patients have sufficiently recovered in the post-surgery ward, they may be transferred to a regular hospital room or another appropriate care setting. Handover of care is coordinated to ensure a seamless transition.
