Registered Nurse II (Experienced General Pediatric, ED and Urgent Care RNs welcome) - Emergency Medicine-$25,000 Bonus

Washington, District of Columbia

Job Summary

Description - External

Medical services are provided in this teaching environment under the supervision of board- certified emergency physicians and Registered Nurses consistent with the Standards of Emergency Nursing Practice. The team works collaboratively with other departments that impact EMTC operations. ED patients are registered by Registration/Patient Access/Admission staff who report to the Director of Business Operations.

The EMTC provides medical screening and emergency care to over 120,000 patients and families annually with a wide range of problems. Presenting conditions are triaged and assigned to the appropriate treatment area utilizing the Emergency Severity Index (ESI) tool, which takes into account patient acuity and resources needed for management. Presenting conditions range from mild to life-threatening. Mild to moderate conditions include common pediatric conditions such as: common colds, rashes, strep throat, upper respiratory conditions, lacerations, otitis media, strains and sprains, etc. More complex to life threatening conditions include child abuse/neglect, sexual assault, behavioral emergencies, meningitis, sepsis, burns, acute medical, surgical and trauma conditions, anaphylaxis, respiratory and cardiac arrest. The EMTC can provide emergency stabilization and treatment of adults and arrange for transfer to the appropriate treatment site after medical screening and initial interventions. Medical screening exams and stabilization of any actual or potential life threatening conditions is provided regardless of age, race, sex, gender, color, ethnicity, national origin or ability to pay for services. The EMTC is able to increase resources as needed to meet large influxes of patients (medical alert, trauma state or phased response).

All nursing practice is based on the legal scope of practice, national and specialty nursing standards, Children's National Policies and Procedures, and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Professional Model of Care requires registered professional nurses to be responsible and accountable for their own practice. Children's National supports the development of RN relationships within the community; specifically those relationships associated with the health and well being of the community at large.
