The new Trauma/Burn Unit is a high energy unit focused on the intensive care and treatment of patients that have experienced critical illnesses as a result of trauma or burn injuries. Because this unit cares for complex patients, there is a heightened opportunity for learning and growth alongside a team of experienced nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, social workers, pharmacists and other health care professionals.
The Trauma/Burn Unit registered nurse will be provided with the education and certifications needed to develop and grow in this role.
Memorial Medical Center is a Regional Burn Center which is one of a limited number of hospitals in the state of Illinois who provide care to burn patients, serving a wide region across central and southern Illinois. The ICU provides intensive care for burn patients before transferring the patient to a lower level of care and rehabilitation.
The registered nurse is responsible for delegation, supervision, and provision of nursing care for a designated group of patients through utilization of the nursing process. They will provide age-appropriate care and will participate in research when appropriate and incorporate research findings into evidence-based clinical practice. In addition, they will contribute to quality improvement processes and adhere to MMC Mission, Vision, and Values, the Nursing Division Mission, Vision, and Philosophy, the ANA Code of Ethics and the Illinois Nursing Act.
A Registered Nurse at Memorial Medical Center means becoming a part of a Magnet hospital that raises the bar for excellence. The MMC environment expects high quality care for patients and RNs who want to advance learning to ensure they can be the best nurse possible. Quality nurses not only understand, but also exhibit, that “care starts with caring.” Nursing is about caring for people. Above all else, working at Memorial means we expect you to exceed customer expectations. You can do this by treating each patient as if they are the only one you are caring for that day, being the calm voice for the family, finding the answers when you don’t have one, and displaying compassion in all interactions.
