Our hospital is looking for experienced Registered Nurses (RNs) to join our friendly and supportive team. We have casual and permanent positions available on our rehabilitation and medical/palliative care wards.
Our rehabilitation unit accommodates 35 patients experiencing functional deficit caused by a range of conditions, mainly post orthopaedic surgeries (elective hip/knee replacement surgery) or musculoskeletal conditions. The goal of our inpatient rehabilitation program is to enable patients to return to a safe and independent lifestyle.
The medical/palliative ward cares for 22 patients requiring either medical and/or palliative care. Our medical patients are mostly older receiving short-stay rehabilitative care following an acute medical/surgical issue. This service is run by Geriatricians who specialise in rehabilitation who are supported by a full multidisciplinary team.
The RNs are responsible for the delivery of quality, efficient and effective person-centred care as part of a larger multidisciplinary team. Our RNs provide appropriate supervision and/or mentoring for other nursing staff, including delegation of care to Enrolled Nurses and Assistants in Nursing according to their competence and within their scope of practice. The RN needs to be able to respond effectively to any emergency situations and/or changing status of the patient.
