Post Anaesthesia Care Unit (Recovery)
Mackay Specialist Day Hospital is licensed for four recovery beds which are located across first and second stage recovery. Each recovery bay in first stage has monitoring equipment compatible with our anaesthetic machines.
Patients move through recovery as they become more awake and pain levels and observations are satisfactory. Most patients who have had a general anaesthetic spend around one hour in first stage recovery before ambulating to second stage recovery where they are offered light refreshments.
Patients stay for a minimum of thirty minutes and during this time they are assessed for appropriateness for discharge.
The patient’s belongings are returned to them and they are assisted to re-dress if required.
