Position Summary: The Intermediate (IU) nurse monitors the overall hemodynamic status of the moderately complex patient while performing head to toe assessments, assessing all body systems, rhythms and invasive lines, tubes and drains. In the IU, the Registered Nurse is expected to administer, titrate and monitor patients on moderately critical medications. Many of these patients are post-surgical and require intense monitoring. They are able to communicate appropriately with the physicians and surgeons any concerning status changes or body system specifics that may require further intervention. IU Nurses are required to stay current with both BLS and ACLS certifications.
The Registered Nurse in IU functions in units we call pods. This design allows the OHH nurse to maintain a 1:3 nurse patient ratio in the Interventional Unit. This allows IU nurses adequate time to monitor and care for moderately complex patients thus ensuring the highest quality, safe and patient-focused care.
Education: Graduate of an accredited school of nursing program.
Licensure/Certification: Registered Nurse with current Oklahoma licensure. Current BLS certification required at the time of hire and ACLS certification within 18 months of hire.
Experience: Minimum of one (1) year of continuous experience in telemetry or related cardiac clinical setting preferred.
As part of our nursing team, you are empowered to work collaboratively with our physicians and other caregivers, and play an integral role in setting the standard for excellence in patient care. With low, fixed nurse-to-patient ratios, our nursing team has time to get to know their patients and their families while providing the highest quality, safe, patient-focused care. Patient rooms are fully stocked with all necessary supplies and arranged in a circular, pod layout around each nursing station to streamline patient care and save our nursing team time.
