In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, HSHS continues to add to our staffing float pool to ensure we are prepared and ready to treat a potential surge in patients with COVID-19. As a member of the Staffing Float Pool Team, you will provide ad hoc assistance in a clinical capacity as needed at your designated HSHS facility. We’re looking for the following temporary – per diem/PRN positions: RNs and CNAs

Outpatient

 

Your physician will determine when the outpatient program is right for you, and at that time submit a referral. Sessions usually begin 10 to 14 days after discharge from the hospital and are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for up to 12 weeks. Education sessions are held on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. These sessions cover topics regarding nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation, stress/relaxation, medications, signs and symptoms, and diabetic screening. During the monitored exercise sessions our team will provide the encouragement and education needed to return to a heart healthy lifestyle.

Inpatient

 

Our inpatient program is designed for the patient who is hospitalized. As soon as he/she is in stable condition, inpatient cardiac rehabilitation may be started. The goal of the Inpatient program is to prevent weakness and complications caused from prolonged bed rest, promote independence and self- esteem, and develop responsible decision making regarding heart health. Upon discharge a referral into the outpatient program may be recommended.

Program Requirements

 

A physician referral and a qualifying diagnosis.

Upon receipt of this referral, an appointment is arranged to discuss and evaluate special needs, establish goals, and design a program to help you achieve these goals.
