RN/Registered Nurse Emergency Room

Company: Centura Health
Location: Westminster
Posted on: November 23, 2020

Job Description:

Welcome to Centura HealthThe Emergency Department at St. Anthony North Health Campus (144th) has 25 beds with approximately 80 patients per day, though it can range from 70-105 patients. We are a Level III trauma emergency department where our nurses currently hold and can obtain the following certifications: BLS, ACLS, PALS and/or ENPC, TNCC, NRP and NIHHS. We are a stroke and STEMI certified ED. We see neonatal through geriatric populations and take care of anything and everything. We see many high acuity patients, with about a 25%admission rate. Many patients are treated for sepsis, chest pain, shortness of breath, falls and abdominal pain. We also occasionally see patients that are less acute and are more urgent care-related, however this is not common. The ED does not get overflow; however, it does have to occasionally hold admitted patients until a bed becomes available. Our mission is to provide excellent care to our community. We want our patients and their family members to know that when they enter our ED, they will be treated with respect, dignityand receive excellent care by our talented nurses, critical care techs and providers. Flourishing Begins HereThe ED is known for having great teamwork. Currently we don't have room assignments - we work in pods and do team nursing. This means you work closely with your fellow coworkers in your pod and pick up patients as they come in. Shared governance is active in the ED and the team works together on processes and initiatives that increase associate satisfaction. We strive for a 4:1 ratio. However, given the nature of the unpredictability ofthe ED, this ratio can change. If a critical patient comes in, some nurses will have to absorb their coworker's patients, potentially putting them at a higher ratio. We have close relationships with our providers, as they are in our department 24/7. We have set schedules, so you have a set pattern (though you can always ask fellow coworkers to swap shifts). We are on a block holiday pattern, A, B or C. Therefore, you know what set holidaysyou are working for the next three years. To be part of our team, we look for someone who is open minded and has a great attitude. We look for individuals who know that they will likely have a 12-hour shift in which they're running from the time they clock in to the time they clock out and those who love working as part of a team. In the ED, we rely so heavily on teamwork and great communication, it is imperative to our success. The ED is a very high-stress, high-emotion setting. We can have a traumatic death and then immediately tend to other patients who are unhappy or in pain - this is very challenging. It's important that someone who joins our team can openly communicate with their fellow team members and understands that our department is a revolving door of patients. When patients come in, it can be the worst day of their life (or their family member's life). It's important that we have compassion for all those that trust us to take care of them. Assumes responsibility and accountability for facilitating, communicating, and collaborating with both the healthcare team, and the patient/family to identify and meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient. Promotes the optimal health, well-being and safety of the patient through use of the nursing process and in accordance with patient care standards, guidelines and the State Nurse Practice Act. Demonstrates personal accountability for relationship-based care, organizational mission, and core values.
