Job overview

The Hospital at Night model has been at SaTH since 2009, the project supports the corporate trust objective: Improve patient safety and the patient experience through the continued improvement in the quality of our services.

The Hospital at Night model proposes that the way to achieve effective clinical care (initially at night but this project is likely to roll out to include weekend day shifts) is to have one or more multidisciplinary teams working in the hospital, who between them have the full range of skills and competences to meet patients immediate needs.

As part of this model, the post holder will be working under the guidance and direction of the Nurse Practitioner / Trainee Nurse Practitioner and other members of the out of hour’s team.
The post holder will be trained to undertake a wide variety of clinical tasks (e.g. venpuncture, cannulation, urethral catheterisation, ECG recording).

The post holder will not be involved with ‘front of house’ work unless in exceptional circumstances (e.g. ED/AMU workload). 

Main duties of the job

The post holder will primarily work within the Hospital at Night team but may be required to work anywhere within the Trust in exceptional circumstances this will be decided by the Hospital at Night Matron or Lead Nurse for Site Safety in the matrons absence.  

The post holder will normally work under the direction of the Hospital at Night Nurse Practitioner / Trainee Nurse Practitioner but will also be supervised by ward based registered nurses (RNs) and the out of hours team.
