Description

Do you love cardiac surgical patients? Are you thinking of how you can transition your career to make your impact at a higher level than one patient at a time? Jump-start your career as a CABG Quality & Safety Coordinator. Submit your application today!

 

Benefits:

We offer you an excellent total compensation package, including competitive salary, excellent benefit package and growth opportunities. We believe in our team and your ability to do excellent work with us. Your benefits include 401k, PTO medical, dental, flex spending, life, disability, tuition reimbursement, employee discount program, employee stock purchase program and student loan repayment. We would love to talk to you about this fantastic opportunity.

 

We are looking for a motivated, self-directed nurse to be our CABG Quality & Safety Coordinator. This nurse will review all CABG candidates and coordinate a heart team review, ensure critical care components from pre-surgical to post-discharge are met, facilitate gathering and review of the data specific to CABG patients, managing the STS National registry for CABG patients, synthesize the data and outcomes of the program and initiate appropriate process improvement projects to address program gaps. You’ll work with nurses, physicians, and ancillary staff across the continuum of the care required for our CABG patients. This is a great transition opportunity because you get to still visit the OR, be part of ICU rounding and conversations, check in with patients and families, but also learn to use the administrative skills and knowledge that you are developing.

Responsible for maintaining national registries and synthesis of data to drive quality outcomes. Serves on committees and reports to facility and division level committees for accountability and improvement projects.
  • Instrumental in keeping abreast of the physician utilization, maintaining positive relationships with a variety of physician groups, and ensuring our program makes it easy for each physician to feel success and comfort as they entrust their patients to our care.
  • Coordinator follows all patients from pre-operative preparation, facilitates heart team review of each surgical candidate, ensures care milestones are achieved during inpatient post-surgical care, and then facilitates interim follow-up for 3-6 months post-surgery.
