Our Trauma ICU unit specializes in caring for Level I Trauma patients from the Middle Tennessee area, covering over a 66,000 square mile area. Our patient focus is on providing quality care to multisystem acute and critical care patients involving traumatic injuries, and preparing them for their return back into society. We strive for the best and set high standards for the care we provide. A typical shift for our nurses includes working with a dedicated team to care for patients with head, neck, spinal cord, thoracic, abdominal, pelvic, and a variety of orthopedic injuries. The Vanderbilt Trauma staff members are excellent in teamwork, reacting quickly to situations, thinking critically, and managing patients from admission to discharge.
