You should help roll patients into the PACU.
Once in the PACU, put on gloves, then start placing monitors onto the patient.
- Pulse ox first.
- EKG leads
- Blood pressure cuff
- Attach the nasal cannula/rebreather into the oxygen supply on the wall (default setting 3).
Ask the patient if they need an extra blanket.
Prepare to give sign out to the PACU nurse.
Offer to come back in an hour or two to do a post-op check on the patient.
