Experienced Registered Nurse - Band 5 We are looking for an enthusiastic highly motivated and experienced Band 5 Nurse to join our Intermediate Care Team’s.
We would consider applications from Newly qualified Nurses with relevant experience such as care of older people, acute medicine, rehabilitation and community nursing. We are seeking Individuals who are comfortable to challenge change, and are committed to improving patient experience.
The Intermediate Care Units have a different focus on care and provide a person centred approach with the aim of optimising physical health and wellbeing over a 24 hour period. Both units’ provide short term rehabilitation for patients who are medically optimised but not at a suitable level for discharge home. Patients will transfer from emergency medicine, current inpatient beds and repatriation for a period of rehabilitation.
The nursing role will be to support patients to manage their long term conditions and act as an autonomous practitioner, as the units have limited Medical cover. Normal nursing duties include; medicine administration, wound and pressure care, discharge planning and patient education.
Due to the complexities of our patient group we require nurses to closely monitor patients, ensuring patients remain suitable for rehabilitation and concerns are escalated accordingly.
This role would develop your autonomy, discharge planning skills and relationships with community and 3rd sector services. Alongside being in a proactive and supportive team.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
