Trauma is everywhere. It begins with EMS and the emergency department. Trauma can be minor injures or require major work in the trauma bay of the ED. Where I work, trauma patients end up in Surgery ICU if they are in bad shape, otherwise they are placed on the surgery step-down unit or the orthopedics floor. In my hospital, none of the nurses work exclusively with trauma patients. SICU and surgery step-down take a mix of surgical patients. Same thing in the emergency department.
