Overall Job Objective

Description of Work

Continuous Recruitment

This position is designated Mandatory and must report or stay over 
during adverse weather events.
 
We are currently seeking permanent full-time registered nurses for our Geriatric Admissions Unit and our Medical Psychiatric Unit, both male and female, on all three shifts. We also offer the opportunity of flexible scheduling. 
-The Geriatric Admissions Unit provides treatment for patients 60 years and older. While most of the patients in the unit have confusion and/or disorientation associated with dementia, there are others with persistent mental illness. Although patients are usually ambulatory, many suffer from age-related physical illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, arthritis or cardiovascular disease. Most require some assistance with their basic needs. The objective of the unit is re-motivation, reorientation, and rehabilitation of patients in an effort to return them to their community and families.
-The Medical Psychiatric Unit (MPU) is a unit for the treatment of psychiatric patients with physical illness who cannot be managed on a general psychiatric unit due to the nature and severity of the medical illness. Patients are admitted to this unit from other hospital units. The primary goal of the MPU is the stabilization and treatment of the patient experiencing an acute medical problem. Registered Nurses on this unit receive ACLS training/certification. These positions supervise licensed practical nurses as well as health care technicians to ensure safe and quality care delivery. The primary focus of this position includes, but is not limited to providing active programming and ensuring safety of our patients, which is driven by individual patients' treatment plans.
