DaVita is currently seeking a team-minded Peritoneal Dialysis RN to join our amazing team in West Seattle, WA ( Westwood Plaza )!
DaVita is an award-winning Fortune 500 healthcare employer that specializes in the Kidney Healthcare arena. If you're seeking a company with core values of Service Excellence, Integrity, Team, Continuous Improvement, Accountability, Fulfillment and Fun, then this may be the place for you.
At DaVita, we “walk the talk” when it comes to our core values!
Here's the Scoop:
As a Peritoneal Dialysis Registered Nurse (PD RN), you educate your patients on how to do their own dialysis from their homes, and you take responsibility for the complete ongoing care of each patient to ensure their treatment stays on track.
While the majority of work that you perform will truly be in-clinic (approx. 95% of the time), a portion of the work involved will take place at patient homes (approx. 5% of the time).
Please note that this full-time days, Monday - Friday position, that offers a flexible work schedule with weekends and holidays off!
Through this experience, the trusting relationships you build as a peritoneal home therapy nurse with patients and their families are strong and fulfilling.
Complexity - Embrace a mentally demanding RN role with many moving parts.
Expect to manage "a very organized chaos." You multitask in myriad ways - put down one patient's chart, start another, work with a physician, run out to get a medication, respond to a supplier's request - with lots of loose ends to pull together and a lot of follow up. It's challenging, fun and keeps your day fresh.
Educator - Empower patients to live healthier lives sharing your knowledge.
You've got to love teaching and education. Training patients takes time and mental energy and the rewards of that investment come in seeing the transformation of your patients from feeling sick and afraid, to strong and independent.
Autonomy - Provide comprehensive patient care in an independent setting.
Plan to be on your toes at all times. You use your mind constantly. You apply your "core" nursing skills to assess, diagnose and implement complete care plans as you look at the whole patient. There's a lot to track and manage and the joy comes in witnessing how your care impacts patients' lives.
