Contessa offers a unique opportunity for individuals interested in partnering with an organization that is leading the country in redefining the way care is provided to patients. Contessa's Home Recovery Care model brings all the essential elements of inpatient care to the comfort and convenience of a patient's home. The model enables provider organizations and health plans to deliver high-quality, safe and affordable care to patients with non-life-threatening conditions. As an Acute Care RN (ACRN), you will have the opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of patients and be at the forefront of shaping a pioneering space in the health care industry.
Like their hospital counterparts, the ACRN will be responsible for starting the patient's care which includes performing a comprehensive nursing assessment, medication reconciliation, safety assessments, and implementing standardized protocols. The difference is that this care is provided in the comfort of the patient's home! After the start of care visit, patients receive ACRN visits at least 2 times per day. During these visits, the ACRN will assess the patient's condition, administer prescribed medications (typically intravenously), obtain blood samples, provide therapeutic interventions, and educate the patient and family members on how to manage their illness; all with a goal of restoring the health and stability of the patient. During the morning visit, the ACRN will participate in telehealth rounds with the provider and patient. A Recovery Care Coordinator will work remotely with the ACRN to assure needed supplies are at the patient's house, arrange transportation and follow-up appointments, and follow-up with the provider as lab and test results become available. This position will cover Phoenix and surrounding areas.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced RN that enjoys connecting with patients while providing highly skilled care! Because our ACRNs provide hospital-level care in the home, 3-5 years inpatient experience (preferably in med/surg) is required, and experience providing nursing care in the home, community, or clinic is highly desirable. An ASN or BSN from an accredited school of nursing and current license RN license in AZ are required. $ Competitive pay ($88k+) + Sign on Bonus Available$
