We are opening a brand new acute floor at the end of this year. This will see the expansion and co-location of our assessment, admissions and short stay facilities enabling more efficient assessment of patients and reducing admissions and length of stay for those patients that require a hospital admission. The facility will run 24/7 and will provide an acute medical assessment unit with 18 spaces and eight monitored beds. This will be located next to a 35 bed Acute Medical Unit and 26-bed short stay ward within a horseshoe shaped design.
To support the new acute floor, we are looking for dedicated Staff Nurses to join our team. Whether you’re an experienced nurse looking for your next move, or you’re still early in your nursing career, you’ll find a welcoming and supportive environment here at SaTH to encourage you to reach your full potential with the Acute Floor team.
