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. This position is employed with our Home Health Partner but is aligned with Contessa's entity Dignity Home Recovery Care. DHRC is provided by a team of registered nurses, social workers, physical, occupational and speech therapists.
Like their hospital counterparts, the ACRN will be responsible starting the patient’s care which includes performing a nursing H&P, 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, the ACRN visits the patient 2 times per day to assess their condition, administer prescribed medications (typically intravenously), obtain blood samples, provide therapeutic interventions, and educate the patient and family members on how to manage the 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 is a great opportunity for an experienced RN that enjoys connecting with patients while providing highly skilled care! The work hours for this position are 7am-3pm or 3pm-10pm shifts, with rotational weekends and on call. Requirements are a BSN from an accredited school of nursing, current license to practice in Arizona, and 5 years of inpatient experience (preferably in med/surg) as a registered nurse within the last 6 years.
