Acute Registered Nurse (RN) San Rafael/Novato

Company: DaVita
Location: San Rafael
Posted on: August 16, 2019

Job Description:

This is a Full time registered nurse position working in our contracted hospitals in the San Rafael/Novato region. You will travel to the different hospitals around the region bringing dialysis to those patients in the acute hospital units.

  • Travel is reimbursed
  • 2-3 patients seen in a day
  • 3-5 hours spent with each patient
  • 3-4 days a week
  • 12-15 hour shifts
  • On call is REQUIRED
  • One on one patient to nurse ratio Work autonomously as an Acute RN in an intense hospital environment - without the typical hospital routine. Provide the highest level of care across one or more of our hospital units and ensure your patients' safety, comfort, and well-being with a patient to nurse ratio typically not more than 2:1. As an Acute Hospital Services Registered Nurse at DaVita you are on your toes working in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment with new challenges to trouble-shoot and overcome daily. Your sense of purpose and accomplishment at the end of each day is powerful. You are the dialysis expert and the hospital staff relies on your expertise. As an Ambulatory Health Care RN you will be held to the highest standards ( The Gold Seal' by The Joint Commission) of patient safety and quality of care. What can you expect as an Acute Dialysis Staff RN at DaVita? Patients - Help your patients, when they need it the most. Patient care is our top priority and we look for teammates who share our commitment to Service Excellence as well as Continuous Improvement. You can build your career in nephrology and practice multiple therapies (Peritoneal, CRRT, Apheresis, etc.) as an Acute Nephrology RN at DaVita. Independence - Manage your patients on your own in a hospital setting.As a teammate in an acute setting, you will typically be the only dialysis nurse in the hospital during your shift. You are not alone though. You will work very closely with the hospital staff each day to assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for critically ill patients. Intensity - Expect the unexpected. No two days are ever the same for an acute dialysis nurse- long days and on call are required. The setting is dynamic and each patient's needs are unique. (Be sure to ask your recruiter about the commute range for this position.) When you walk in the door each day you don't know what patients you might have, their condition, when you will get them or when you will be done for the day. "I love problem solving and the challenge of the role of acute nursing. I get a lot of respect from the doctors and my team." - Ginny E. The shining star for an Acute Hemodialysis Registered Nurse will have:
