Patients who are recovering from both inpatient and ambulatory surgery will spend time in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), so that they can be monitored after anesthesia.
In the PACU, patient rights and dignity are our focus. We are dedicated to providing personalized emotional and physical support and comfort in an efficient and accommodating environment. Foreign language and sign language interpreters are available as needed. The PACU team consists of a nurse manager, clinical leader, RNs and a nursing assistant.
Extended Care Unit
Our anesthesiologists also provide services to patients in the Extended Care Unit. The Extended Care Unit at Danbury Hospital is designed for patients that need additional medical and/or rehabilitative services after a surgery or hospital stay.
