Healtheast and Fairview Health Services is looking for a Nursing Assistant at Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul, MN. This position is 48 hours per two weeks on the Night shift, for 8 hour shifts, Variable schedule, and is eligible for benefits.
Bethesda is our LTAC Hospital where all of our patients have had a complex illness or injury that requires hospital level care for an average of 25-30 days. Many of our patients are more acute than a typical Med/Surg floor, so Bethesda is a great place to gain expertise in managing patients with progressive care issues with varying levels of multi system impairment. Outside of an ICU setting, it is hard to get exposer to such a high concentration of acutely ill patients.
A Nursing Assistant at Bethesda would be accountable to perform patient care duties and activities for a unique group of acutely ill patients. You will assist with activities of daily living such as personal hygiene, repositioning, ambulating, transporting and feeding. Also you will be doing data collection and bedside testing such as blood glucose, vital signs, Foley catheter maintenance, continuous bladder irrigation maintenance, and observing and documenting patient input and output. You will also perform some non-direct patient care duties such as setting up and maintaining rooms and stocking supplies on the unit
