Hello and welcome to our unit!
I am Miriam Majors, BSN, RN, Director of Surgical Services which includes Surgery, PACU, and Same Day Surgery. Our Same Day Surgery unit is located on the first floor of Vanderbilt Tullahoma-Harton Hospital (VTHH) near the admissions entrance.
The environment on our Same Day Surgery Unit is welcoming, supportive, and adaptive to provide the teamwork necessary to care for each patient. This is a fast-paced unit that collaborates with other members of our interdisciplinary team.
We care for pediatric and adult patients who need surgical procedures, invasive radiology procedures, cath lab procedures, and medical infusions.
One of the perks of working in our Same Day Surgery Unit is the support of a healthy balance for work and life. Our unit works together to engage each team member's input for improvements in all aspects of our patient care and support professional development.
Our nurses are successful because they are committed to our patients, team members, and communities and offer extensive nursing knowledge while giving compassionate care.
We orient new nurses to our unit by providing a preceptor who supports the learning experience of the new nurse throughout the orientation experience.
We encourage professional growth.
If your career goal is to expand your nursing career, we are committed to helping with this process by providing experiences that support opportunities for your growth and future development. Our unit has many success stories with continued growth and advancement.
