Recovery Room

Following an operation, patients who cannot be immediately transferred back to the general ward are temporarily cared for in our recovery room, where specialist anaesthetic and intensive care nursing staff constantly monitor the patient’s vital functions (heart rate, blood pressure and respiration) in a similar manner to that used in the operating theatre.

In addition, the analgesic treatment that began in the operating theatre is continued in the recovery room and any required laboratory analyses re performed. Once the patient's condition has stabilised sufficiently, he/she is immediately transferred to the general ward.

The proximity to the surgery section means that close monitoring by doctors from the specialist anaesthesiology and surgical departments is guaranteed at all times.
