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.  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.

HIGHLIGHTS:

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 decisions for our patients related to their dialysis treatment and will occasionally partner alongside the SNF staff to coordinate care. Your impact on the lives of our patients and their families will be felt every day.

  • Patient education. RNs by training, are Educators.  As a Post-Acute Services RN, you will be provided the opportunity to conduct impactful and meaningful education to patients and their families in the SNF setting.
