Are you a nurse with experience in the ICU? We have an amazing opportunity for you within our team here at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
Our Patient Services Tower has been completed and we have moved into our new Critical Care unit. The floor plan is 4 times the size of the vacated space with room to expand to 16 beds.
The new space offers a large, bright working area with wide halls, and lots of storage areas with windows surrounding the whole unit. The new unit was designed to focus on the family unit as a whole being and the new ICU has three family areas; a waiting room, a quiet room and a family overnight room, the natural light and the private rooms make for a positive experience for patients and family members.
Our new decentralized model moves the nurse and services right to the patients bedside in satellite stations and provides access by all users, in a quiet, soothing experience that is reassuring to patients, families, and visitors. The decentralized room provides optimal patient privacy and enhances private family interactions with patient, nurse and physician and other allied team members such as social workers, clerical staff, physiotherapists, dieticians and respiratory therapists.
