Surgical nurses work in a dynamic service line committed to excellence in practice. Our nurses experience a contemporary practice model while providing quality patient care. Surgical nurses are exposed to a variety of settings including inpatient units, operating rooms, anesthesia, pre- and post-operative units and trauma-surgical intensive care units.
At WellSpan, Surgical Services nursing offers a full scope of multi-specialty services. The department is comprised of several different inpatient specialty units ranging from PHAS (pre-hospital assessment services) to PACU (post-anesthesia care unit). Nurses provide care to patients ranging in age from infancy through elder years. WellSpan surgical nurses are exposed to a broad range of patient populations and conditions, and as a result, develop expertise and skill in a multitude of clinical specialties.
A multi-disciplinary approach to care is employed to ensure the delivery of quality patient outcomes. Teamwork is essential to the provision of excellent patient care and smooth operation of the units. All environments are fast-paced and challenging, and focused on the education of staff and patients alike.
Apple Hill Surgical Center:
Apple Hill Surgical Center (AHSC) is a for-profit joint venture between York Hospital and its medical staff. The center was formed to address the growth of ambulatory surgery and create a working relationship between the medical staff and the hospital.
AHSC has an all-RN staff that rotates through the pre-op, operating rooms, recovery, and endoscopy areas. We require that our staff be certified in basic life support (BLS) and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), and encourage staff to also be certified in pediatric advance life support (PALS). Team work and customer satisfaction are essential to our success. The surgical center is a dynamic and fast-paced environment that requires our nurses to be extremely motivated. Patient assessment, organizational and prioritizing skills are essential.
AHSC is committed to providing high quality care in a cost effective and safe environment. The surgical center follows the basic principles of openness, integrity, fiscal responsibility and clinical excellence. Our nursing staff is active in performance improvement initiatives, as we believe that staff involvement is imperative to the satisfaction of our patients and physicians and, subsequently, the success of the center.
