The Surgical Specialties Unit (9 South) is a 22 bed general acute care inpatient adult unit. Our unit specializes in the care of the post-operative surgical patient. We are the designated unit for Urologic Surgery patients but we also care for many other types of surgery patients including oncology-endocrine surgery, emergency general surgery, plastics, head & neck surgery, and others. Our focus is to provide patient centered care and to meet the needs of a diverse patient population which requires our nurses to be familiar with a wide range of treatments and types of care. 9 South is also equipped with low acuity vital signs monitors that allow surveillance monitoring for the post-operative patient population - it has capability for continuous pulse-oximetry, capnography, and respiratory rate monitoring. Working on the Urology unit provides an opportunity to care for a wide variety of patient populations in a professional and committed work group.
