PeriAnesthesia Nurse Awareness Week February 5-11, 2018  
Nurses working in preanesthesia and postanesthesia care, ambulatory surgery, and pain management are dedicated to caring for patients and their families. They are passionate about what they do as nurses. PANAW is an opportunity to educate nursing colleagues and the community about the professionalism and passionate care that is delivered by perianesthesia nurses every day. Plan to celebrate and recognize your colleagues during PANAW 2018!

DAPANA members of Sycamore Medical Center and Good Samaritan Nurses celebrated PANAW. We had a celebration with donuts on Monday, our manager and team leader gave us Smores on Tuesday,Cake on Wednesday, and on Thursday we had a carry in buffet. What better way to end the week than with cookies. Brandy Mather from SMC and final picture from Helen Morrow shares group picture of the Good Samaritan Pre, Post and Endo Nurses also from DAPANA.

Thanks for the memories!

Pics of our NOPANA PACU Celebration at Lima Memorial Hospital We had made a move from our old PACU 1969, to our new PACU in April 2017. This is our first year to celebrate in our new unit. We celebrated all week. Our CRNAs brought us shrimp/ veggies , a CRNA bought us Chinese meals one day, our urologist bought us Biggby coffees, our OR nurses made us goodies, our last day we had Grinders for lunch . We felt really spoiled. And after all these years to be in a new updated unit.                                                                                                                                                                                                    Jayne Caskie RN CPAN, Lima Memorial Hospital PACU
