Additional Info:

**Round and manage ICU patients. We are responsible for the first 24 hours of vents. There is not an intensivist in our unit.

*Candidate must be willing to become NIH-Stroke certified for credentialing (2 hours of supplemental CME training). A total of 8 Stroke CMEs (which much include the NIH Stroke Scale) must be submitted with application.

*Candidates MUST be comfortable managing an airway during urgent or emergent clinical situations. (Avg number of intubations per physician provider/month is about 2-4)

*Candidates MUST be comfortable and willing to supervise NPs and PAs

*5 NP/PA on during the day 7a-5p (the non-physicians providers are autonomous and do their own billing, no physician co-signs required)

Credentialing:

  • Pre application-must be signed by the provider, once sent to the MSO must be signed by the department Chair before the full application will be released. (this can be a picture/scanned copy)
  • Full application is paper and the MSO/SVO require the original to be sent to them. We overnight all applications.
  • Before Temps will be granted the provider must do a phone or in person interview with the Vice Chariman.

 

 

  1. How many admits during the day/ and at night? Varies depending on volumes but 24 hour period we see 22 admits
  2. Number of encounters? 15-17 encounters

 

If you have a provider that is not comfortable with procedures they are able to work the swing shift. If we have an open day or night shift and the other provider on is confident in procedures your provider may be moved to the day or night shifts.

Orientation

Sound Connect online training must be completed prior to orientation with the PMD.  Come in a shift prior to first shift to meet with PMD and for EMR training session. This would be like a first shift shared with another physician for orientation/shadow.
