Mercy Medical Center Clinton Patient Safety Attendant Float Pool Part-Time Evenings in Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center - Boise, Idaho
At Saint Alphonsus Health System, we are looking for people who are living out their calling. We want you to be passionate about coming to work, and challenged to achieve your potential. Living by these virtues, we pride ourselves on exceptional service and the highest quality of care.
We are seeking a Patient Safety Attendant (PSA) for our Clinical Support Team (Float Pool). While the position will be based in Boise, colleagues in the Clinical Support Team have the opportunity to float to Nampa and Ontario when there is a need!
As a PSA with Saint Alphonsus Health System, you will support a safe environment for patients by providing continuous observation and surveillance. You will be expected to provide a first line of action by verbally redirecting the patient, from engaging in at-risk behaviors and notify the professional staff of the patient's needs and/or alert them in the case of an emergency. Documentation will be completed on the observation flow sheet every 15-30 minutes and PSAs participate in the handoff of pertinent information. Our PSAs also assist licensed nursing staff with cares and seek assistance or advice when a patient appears to pose a threat to themselves or others.
Our ideal candidate is very observant, and has the knowledge and skills to care for patients of all ages while communicating effectively with members of the nursing team. He or she will maintain visual observation at all times, and verbally redirect the patient in person or over a 2-way audio device in the patient's room.
