Nurses and anesthiologist in PACU were great

Peggy Malnight, Patient

3 months ago I had a shoulder replacement. Having had previous shoulder surgery I knew how painful this shoulder would be when I woke up from anesthesia. I knew from previous experience that a block was the answer. The anesthesiologist in pre-op explained that although there was not time to put the block in before surgery they would do it as soon as I woke up post op. As expected, I woke up in excruciating pain and just as promised they were right there to put the block in. The delay – even in this level of pain – felt like only minutes. The nurses and anesthiologist in PACU were great! I wish I could remember names but I can’t. I do know the care each and everyone gave me especially in PACU but also on the floor was extrodinary.
