We are offering a $15,000 sign-on incentive. (external hires)
A 36-bed post-surgical unit that specializes in orthopedics, traumatic injury and plastic surgery. We also have two negative pressure rooms that can accommodate patients who are being ruled out for tuberculosis or who have a diagnosis of active tuberculosis or shingles. In addition, we are the medicine overflow unit for patients with Cystic Fibrosis, so our population can be varied. You will see patients in varying stages of pre and post-surgical care as well as medical co-morbidities.
The majority of our focus is orthopedics and trauma patients, so we have a great emphasis on getting people up, moving and recovering from their injuries and operations. Many of our patients have unique psycho-social dispositions as well. Our unit is a great place to work because we pride ourselves on teamwork and a nurturing, friendly environment. We have implemented unit initiatives to improve safety, reliability and team-based patient care. You will experience a 1:4 or 1:5 RN to patient ratio, a fast paced environment, a variety of surgical conditions, and a unique patient population that allows one to build fundamental skills.
