Registered Nurse, 7C Trauma and Burn ICU
Posted on: October 17, 2020
The new Trauma/Burn Unit is a high energy unit focused on the
intensive care and treatment of patients that have experienced
critical illnesses as a result of trauma or burn injuries. Because
this unit cares for complex patients, there is a heightened
opportunity for learning and growth alongside a team of experienced
nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, social workers,
pharmacists and other health care professionals. The Trauma/Burn
Unit registered nurse will be provided with the education and
certifications needed to develop and grow in this role. Memorial
Medical Center is a Regional Burn Center which is one of a limited
number of hospitals in the state of Illinois who provide care to
burn patients, serving a wide region across central and southern
Illinois. The ICU provides intensive care for burn patients before
transferring the patient to a lower level of care and
rehabilitation. The registered nurse is responsible for delegation,
supervision, and provision of nursing care for a designated group
of patients through utilization of the nursing process. They will
provide age-appropriate care and will participate in research when
appropriate and incorporate research findings into evidence-based
clinical practice. In addition, they will contribute to quality
improvement processes and adhere to MMC Mission, Vision, and
Values, the Nursing Division Mission, Vision, and Philosophy, the
ANA Code of Ethics and the Illinois Nursing Act. A Registered Nurse
at Memorial Medical Center means becoming a part of a Magnet
hospital that raises the bar for excellence. The MMC environment
expects high quality care for patients and RNs who want to advance
learning to ensure they can be the best nurse possible. Quality
nurses not only understand, but also exhibit, that "care starts
with caring." Nursing is about caring for people. Above all else,
working at Memorial means we expect you to exceed customer
expectations. You can do this by treating each patient as if they
are the only one you are caring for that day, being the calm voice
for the family, finding the answers when you don't have one, and
displaying compassion in all interactions.
