A Vacancy at Barking Havering and Redbridge Univ Hospitals NHS Trust.
An exciting opportunity has arisen on Mandarin A, which is a Care of the Elderly ward, for a Band 6 Ward Sister's post. This position will be a permanent post
Mandarin A is a 31 bedded ward which cares for patients over the age of 75 years, who are medically unwell. There are a small percentage of patients with Dementia and Delirium whose behaviour issues require staff with skills and understanding.
A good proportion of patients are at high risk of falls and at risk of developing pressure area damage. The applicant needs to have a good knowledge base around the needs of all of these patients.
The applicant will be expected to work closely with the MDT, Consultants and Specialist nurses. They need to demonstrate excellent communication and motivational skills in order to continue the excellent team work currently displayed on the ward.
Expectations will include continuing with creating a ward that is supportive to all staff but particularly those that are new and junior and to also continue to develop an environment of quality and innovation, encouraging independent thinking and creativity.
