Registered Nurse - Post Acute Services
West Bloomfield Area -
DaVita Kidney Care is bringing our industry-leading clinical
quality to patients on-site at Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF)
through a new team called Post-Acute Services.
Approximately 10% of all dialysis patients reside in a SNF and
are transported to dialysis three times a week placing a
significant burden on patients and adding significant avoidable
costs to the health care system. Post-Acute Services teammates will
have access to all the capabilities and resources DaVita has to
offer, and will work to quickly leverage these to develop the
infrastructure and rapidly grow the new service line. Ideal
teammates will have experience in dialysis, get energized by a
start-up type environment and improving the lives of patients, and
have a track record of finding ways to Get Stuff Done (GSD).
Teammates must be comfortable working autonomously and have
demonstrated the ability to collaborate with cross-functional
resources across the organization.
What you can expect:
In this role, you take responsibility for the complete ongoing
care of each patient to ensure their dialysis treatment stays on
track. Post-Acute RNs will troubleshoot, and make sound

to independently demonstrate best practice techniques and deliver
optimal dialysis care. The role includes supervising Dialysis
Technician who are tasked with delivering tandem care to meet the
capacity and efficiency goals of the program.
Complexity: Post-Acute Dialysis care is a complex but
fulfilling service line. Meeting and/or exceeding clinical
outcomes are the goals and multitasking is an expectation to meet
the needs of the service, the patients and our SNF partners.
Autonomy and Critical Thinking: Provide
comprehensive patient care in an independent setting. Plan to be on
your toes at all times. You use your mind constantly. You apply
your "core" nursing skills to assess, diagnose and implement
complete care plans as you look at the whole patient. There's a lot
to track and manage and the joy comes in witnessing how your care
impacts patients' lives.
