LPN/ Weekend On Call

Tanner Home Health

As the weekend nurse, my responsibilities are to see all patients scheduled for the weekend, manage all phone calls, referrals and scheduling for additional patients for start of new week. I monitor the patients with home telemonitors, perform any necessary procedures; Foly catheter replacement, IV administration, patient teaching, sq and IM injections, patient assessment for problems, notifying MD of any pertinant problems that arise over the weekend.

  This job requires a great deal of independance and time management skills. I have been able to work for the last year without a full time RN backing me up. The weekday nurses have been having to fill in while we searched for a full time replacement for our weekend RN. Our previous nurse became ill and has been unable to return to work. This has created more responsibility for me in caring for the patients and notifying the proper individuals for assistance.

  During our transition to EMR, I have taken on more responsibility in working during the week to assist the supervisory staff in transcribing patient care notes, admissions and PT/OT notes from paper to paperless documentation.
