Why Mayo Clinic


The Observation/Infusion Unit has 15 beds for observation patients and 5 bays that are utilized for infusion patients. The observation portion of the unit is focused on rapid discovery and treatment of specific short stay diagnosis such as chest pain, abdominal pain, fluid overload, dehydration, and post procedural care. We work collaboratively with the hospitalist practice, specialists, and many other ancillary departments to expedite the delivery of care and optimize the length of stay. Infusion patients receive medications, blood transfusions, and/or IV fluids and then return home the same day. This service is available for patients 24/7.






Position description


We desire to create and support an organizational culture where all employees are mission-driven, embody organizational values, and practice relationship based care. We adhere to the primary value "the needs of the patient come first." The daily actions of the staff demonstrate the vision and values of the organization. The registered nurse (RN) is accountable for the coordination of nursing care, including direct patient care, patient/family education and transitions of care. The RN supports professional nursing practice across practice settings and across the continuum of care to meet the needs of the patient and family. The RN will function within the Mayo Nursing Care Model, which includes accountability for planning, implementing, evaluating and communicating all phases of nursing care for assigned patients. The American Nurses Association (ANA) Scope and Standards of Practice provide a basis for the practice of the RN. The RN provides leadership through activities such as preceptor role, informal leadership roles, and quality improvement efforts. The RN delegates patient care according to skill level, experience, patient acuity, fiscal accountability, and adequacy of resources. The RN possesses excellent communication skills; is skillful in mentoring and teaching; and may participate on committees or projects.
