Please note: Only RN's are eligible for this client, due to Mn requirements for complex care.
Seeking an RN to join our team of caregivers, to provide part time in-home care for a ventilator-dependent adult male in a relaxed family setting. If you don't have ventilator experience, we can train you on the job. The client is alert, oriented, and able to verbalize his needs. He directs his care. His condition is very stable. Due to his neuro-muscular disease, he needs max assist with all ADLs, positioning, and transfers. He uses a patient lift for transfers and a power-chair for mobility.
This position differs from agencies or hospitals. The caregivers here are independent home care nurses that bill the state directly. Essentially, they are considered independent contractors. In order to be able to provide nursing services to clients in this manner, you have to enroll as a Minnesota Health Care Program (MHCP) Provider through the Minnesota Department of Human Services. The process is not too complicated and information and assistance will be provided.
