 Aims and background: PACU, which locates next to surgery room is designed to take care of patients recovering from anesthesia and surgery. Patients which are transferred to this room are exposed to risks and irreparable complications. Therefore, standardization of this unit has a great importance for proper evaluation of patients. Therefore researchers aimed to assess the condition of PACU in Iran medical university in order to improve this unit based on new worldwide standard. Materials and methods: The present research is a cross-sectional descriptive study which is performed using a census report of PACU in medical university of Iran. A check-list was used as a data collection tool which surveys 3 main standards of PACU concerning the structure, equipment and functionality of these units. Data was analyzed using SPSS25. Findings: Results showed that 7 of 11 surveyed hospitals reached the standard concerning equipments, 3 of them were near the standard index and one was below the standard index. Investigations concerning the Structure Standard showed only that 2 of 11 hospitals reached the standard, 5 were near the standard and 4 was below the standard index. Besides, no significant relation was observed between the demographic features and functional aspect in our study. Conclusion: the structure of PACU in the surveyed hospitals need to be modified and reformed based on the new standards indices.
