Health New Zealand, Te Toka Tumai, Auckland's Intermediate Care Team is looking for experienced Registered Nurses with a Full Clean NZ Drivers Licence! Full time and part time opportunities on offer!

Te whiwhinga mahi | The Opportunity

Do you have excellent clinical assessment skills, wish to expand your knowledge and be part of a passionate, high functioning nursing team within the community, where no two days are the same?

The Intermediate Care Team is part of the Community and Long-term Conditions Directorate and compromises of the Rapid Community Access Team (RCAT), an intensive, short term service that provides acute Nursing and Allied Health care for adult patients, the Interim Care Scheme (ICP) providing access to beds in Age Related Residential Care facilities (ARRC) to support patients who don’t need to be in hospital, but are not yet ready to be supported in their own home and the Hospital in the Home (HiTH) delivers hospital-level acute health services in the patient’s... own home, which increases hospital inpatient capacity without requiring a new facility build or significant capital investment to refurbish existing facilities. The HiTH model supports whānau choice and encourages timely hospital discharge. It delivers ‘Person and whānau-centred care which empowers everyone to manage their own health and wellbeing, giving people, their carer’s and whānau meaningful control’

HiTH is currently implementing additional patient pathways which include heart failure, COVID-19, COPD and cellulitis. The pathways will have narrowly defined eligibility criteria which will identify patients where their acute needs may be met at home by visiting physicians, nurses, and other clinical staff.

The HiTH/RCAT and ICP provides a safe alternative option to hospital care and is underpinned by the core principles of:
• Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations are met throughout all aspects of the HiTH model
• All solutions will proactively work to accelerate equitable outcomes
• Active partnerships with Māori with oversight and shared decision making so that Māori knowledge informs and drives the work
• Regional collaboration and alignment of key clinical pathways providing the ability to flex within the region to support capacity and demand management
• Patient care is holistic and tailored to individual need
• Care is closer to home and supports people in the community with acute needs to prevent further deterioration in their condition.
• Broad definition of home – where people reside (Aged Residential Care (ARC), Retirement Village, own residence)
• Acute demand management support
• Support better integration of community care models
• Working within a multidisciplinary team of health professionals and have the privilege of working with patients within their own environment.
• Nursing and Allied health input that supports the transition from hospital to home
• Use of rehabilitation skills to maintain functioning during a period of care.

As with any ward, we have a Charge Nurse Manager, Monday-Friday, and a Clinical Charge Nurse Monday-Sunday. After hours, we have a Senior Nurse present for escalation and the staff has access to the on-call Adult Medicine SMO.

If this sounds like an opportunity you would like to explore, then we would love to hear from you!

We are a value based and inclusive organisation that is committed to deliver the best health outcomes for our total population. To do this we are working hard to develop a robust and capable workforce that reflects the population we serve. We strongly encourage applicants from all backgrounds with the necessary capability and who share our values to apply and would greatly value seeing more applicants from our Māori & Pacific communities. Our organisation values diversity, inclusivity and empathy, if you do too, apply now and join us to make a positive difference.

This role is a real opportunity to be a part of an exciting growth area in the Community & Long-Term Conditions directorate. Experience across both hospital and a community setting is desirable.
