terminology can change depending on geography but i'd interpret it to mean surgical as working on a floor with surgical patients pre & post surgery like a mdicine unit but faster and not as sick aptietns...often with higher turnover depending on the type of patients, and theatre would be working with the operating theatre eg. scrub nurses, circulating nurses etc.
