The Home Team will offer a 7 day a week service from 8 am to 8 pm. The focus of the service is hospital avoidance and supported discharge working across a range of settings including the community, Emergency Department and the in-

This is a fantastic opportunity for registered nurses who are interested in working as part of an Inter-professional team.
Within this position you will support the early discharge of appropriate patients from Southland Hospital. You will monitor their recovery and ensure each individual receives appropriate rehabilitation and / or packages of care at the right time to maximise their functional ability, and maintain their independence in their own home.
To add to the excitement of this role, as a Registered nurse within the Home Team you will also provide a responsive community based service for patients, who (while being medically stable) require urgent assessment and immediate coordination of services to prevent Emergency Department presentations or hospital admission.
This role requires a nurse who is adaptive to change, resourceful, flexible to service needs and future development and a genuine passion for working in the community

8pm. We have a range of FTE options available from 0.5- 1.0 FTE, all shifts are 8 hours.
You will need to be a NZ Registered Nurse, with a current APC, a minimum of 2 years post registration experience in New Zealand and a full clean NZ driver licence.
