Acute RN Dialysis

Company: ICONMA, LLC
Location: Weymouth
Posted on: November 18, 2022

Job Description:


  • RNs in this role work autonomously alongside the hospital staff to assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for the critically ill patients.
  • 1:1 Patient Care.
  • Deliver acute hemodialysis to in-patients with chronic kidney disease, as well as patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and transplant. Average Patient to Nurse Ratio is 2:1 or 1:1.
  • Whether this is the first or a blip in their chronic treatment, our RNs are experts in educating our patients and families.
  • Specialized, complex care.
  • RNs deliver care to patients who are often dealing with multiple co-morbidities and/or acute conditions which require unique treatment plans and the ability to leverage a broad range of nursing skills and knowledge.
  • Not just hemodialysis. Acute RNs may deliver nephrology care across multiple renal therapies: peritoneal, continuous renal replacement and apheresis.
  • Expect the unexpected. When you walk in the door each day don't know what patients might have, their condition, when you will get them or when you will be done for the day.
  • Autonomy in a Hospital Setting.
  • Deliver dialysis to patients at a particular hospital or group of hospitals and become an integral part of their team and ours.
  • As a teammate in an acute setting, work on own almost all the time.
  • Each day assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for critical patients.
  • Our Hospital Services group performs 1.1M treatments annually.
  • Schedule. No two days are ever the same for an acute dialysis nurse - long days and on call are required.
  • Schedules vary by hospital system.
  • For this role expect to know your weekly schedule in advance, but daily schedule may change depending on patient needs.
