Registered Nurse (RN) Clinical Nurse Lead - Women's Care
The Women’s Care Unit is a 13-bed unit that provides Gyn, Surgical, and Antepartum care for adolescent, adult, and geriatric women. This all-private room unit cares for the post-surgical patient following vaginal and abdominal hysterectomy, bladder repairs, laprascopic procedures, plastics, mastectomies/breast reconstruction, and women with medical-surgical complications. The Women’s Care Unit also specializes in providing care to long-term high-risk antepartum patients, who sometimes spend weeks or months as an inpatient until the time of delivery. The all-female staff provides compassionate care to patients who have experienced a fetal loss or are placing a baby for adoption. Due to its small size and highly tenured staff, this unit has a cohesive, physician-nurse partnership that provides safe, exceptional care to its patients.
The clinical nurse leader is responsible for the assessment, coordination, implementation, and evaluation of the delivery of safe and effective patient-centered care. The Clinical Nurse Leader will facilitate and mentor others to grow professionally and advance their knowledge and skills. In addition, the Clinical Nurse Leader will continuously assess unit needs to ensure adequate resources for current and upcoming shifts by collaborating with other departments, clinical and nonclinical, to coordinate admissions, transfers, and discharges of patients in a timely manner. Finally, the Clinical Nurse Leader will demonstrate professionalism at all times and will uphold standards of practice by holding team members accountable for continued compliance.
