      What is a Recovery Nurse?

      A Recovery Nurse is responsible for postoperative care in health facilities including acute care and ambulatory care facilities.

      The Recovery Nurse is also responsible for preventing any postoperative acute complications and intervening if complications from a surgery occur.

      Recovery Nurses care for patients post-surgery. The type of care depends on what type of surgery is performed. Patients can be of any age, from newborns to the elderly. Recovery Nurses check vital signs, clean wounds, monitor progress, and administer medication.

      A Recovery Nurse develops patient care plans with the surgeon, attending physician, and anesthesiologist. They also offer support to patients who are waking up from anesthesia post-surgery.

      This support can include maintaining a patient’s bandages, managing their pain, treating any postoperative nausea, and making sure that recovering patients get enough rest, nutrients, and fluids so they can heal.

      Recovery Nurse jobs include observing a patient’s progress, recording their observations in the patient’s chart, and informing any attending physicians of changes to a patient’s progress post-surgery.

      It’s also a Recovery Nurse’s job to teach patients how to take their medication, how to clean wounds and bandage them, and any other postoperative care instructions necessary before the patient can go home.

      Recovery Nurses typically report to a department manager or unit head.

      What Makes a Good Recovery Nurse?

      Recovery Nurses have an abundance of patience, compassion, persistence, and enjoy helping people. You also need good relationship-building skills, a professional demeanor, like keeping things clean and orderly, and the ability to work as part of a team.

      What does a Recovery Nurse do?

      A Recovery Nurse acts as the primary caregiver to patients after surgery. This includes performing ongoing assessments including observation, physical examination, laboratory/test results, and patient response to surgery.

      The Recovery Nurse is accountable for analysing lab results and reporting them to the physician, as well as monitoring patient progress and updating patient medical records as needed.

      Equally as important responsibilities include:

      • Cleaning wounds and managing bandages
      • Managing and administering medication
      • Maintaining patient intravenous therapy
      • Providing education to the patient/family/significant other according to organisational standards
      • Implementing a plan of care according to identified physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs
      • Reviewing and revising the plan of care according to changes in the patient’s status
