I have a patient that went from the ER to PACU to have a nerve block done and then to a med surg floor, what ED destination would I use? What should I use for procedure location?

There are no guidelines in the PTOS Manual that tell you not to use PACU as a post ed location, it just isn’t in the current menu as an option. I recommend recording 15, other, for Post ED Destination and specifying PACU in the Specify field that opens.

For Procedure Location, you can record 13, PACU.
