Patients are taken to the Recovery area, also known as the Post Anesthesia Care Unit, after surgery to awaken from their anesthesia. This area is staffed by nursing personnel with highly specialized training in critical and post-anesthesia care. Anesthesiologists also continually assess the patient’s progression and determine when to release them to outpatient discharge or to an inpatient hospital room.
