Staff Nurse - Ward 6B

Job Description

Ward 6B is a 28 bedded ward which caters for the needs of frail elderly patients with complex care needs. Patients are admitted through AMU or the frailty unit and are acutely unwell on arrival to the ward. All staff need to have a good grounding in medical knowledge and an understanding of the needs involved in caring, planning and discharging the frail older person.

We are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic individual to join our team on Ward 6B. We need someone who can provide ward leadership ensuring length of stay continues to reduce without compromise to patient care. You will need to manipulate staff rosters in order to ensure adequate staff and skills are on duty at all times. It is expected that you will act as the shift coordinator as needed. You must be able to communicate at all levels, be a strong patient advocate and have an understanding of adult safeguarding.

It is expected that the band 5 nurse post is a development opportunity and support will be offered in personal development.
