Location: Palmerston North Hospital
Service: Staff Bureau - Hospital Coordination Unit
Position Type: Nursing

Close Date: 20/12/2019
We have recently implemented a new model for the Duty Nurse Manager role. There are now two duty nurse managers rostered after-hours.  One role will undertake senior clinical nursing functions such as supporting staff to care for the deteriorating patients across the hospital, attending MET calls and responding to escalation alerts through the VRM warning system.  The other role will be an operational role, covering hospital bed management, staff management and patient flow. 
All the duty nurse manager roles will be rostered and rotating through all the shifts and through both roles.
If you interested in being part of this newly formed team we would like to hear from you.
