In law anaesthetists are responsible for their patients until they recover consciousness. To remain at the side of every anaesthetised patient until they were awake and responding would take up valuable operating time, so anaesthetists delegate responsibility for care during recovery to nurses or technicians. In order that anaesthetists can deal with an emergency complication, after their operation anaesthetised patients remain close to the operating theatre in a recovery room.
