Responsible and empathetic PACU Nurse with years of experience. I have worked long hours for the comfort of patients and ensured the best service to ease their post-operative time in the hospital. I wish to work in a hospital where patients require a skilled nurse to take care of them. I know I have the skill and learning to help those who feel distressed.
Professional Experience
Sydney Richardson Hospital
PACU Nurse
(Jun 2014 to Present) 6 Years & 4 Months

I recieve patients out of surgery and check that their vitals are normal.

I also check all the patients in recovery to ensure that all patients are recovering from the surgical operation.

I make sure that the surgeon and physician concerned are informed of the patient's condition. I check the wound and change dressing for patients. I also visit them in rooms to record their revcovery phase.

National Cross
PACU Nurse
(Feb 2007 to May 2014) 7 Years & 3 Months

Spent a long time at the hospital and learnt how to handle and care for a patient after surgery.

It was my responsibility to record the vital signs of the patient and observe him/her in recovery.

I had to ensure that the wound was cleansed and that the dressing was done immediately after surgery.

Patients' anesthesia time was noted and it was my responsibility to see that they are conscious on time. In case of any emergencies or irregularities, I was in charge of calming the patients.

Sydney Surgical Clinics
Nurse
(Jul 2004 to Jan 2007) 2 Years & 6 Months

Responsible for recording history of patients admitted to the clinics for surgery.

It was my responsibility to look after the patient and ensure that they are prepared for the surgery. This included taking their vitals and talking to them to relax them.

I was in charge of recieving the patient out of surgery and recording post operative vitals as well. I had to see whether the pre-operative and post operative vital signs are normal or not.

In emergency cases, I handled the patient until the doctor arrived. It was my duty to change wound dressings and observe that healing is normal.
