recovery room, or most properly a post-anesthesia care unit is a hospital ward built to accommodate patients who have recently completed surgery or any other procedure that requires general anesthesia. It is usually located in close proximity to the operating rooms.

In most cases, patients in recovery require minimal care until they regain consciousness, at which point they are generally moved to their own room or to an out-patient facility to prepare for discharge. The staff monitors vital signs, is capable of managing any post-operative pain or vomiting, and will monitor for abnormal signs such as bleeding or swelling.
