  • Assessing and evaluating patients’ statuses and providing care plan revisions, as needed
  • Initiating and sustaining orders for medications and treatments as prescribed by the physician and/or the approved care plan
  • Initiating and applying appropriate preventative and therapeutic nursing procedures and techniques, and communicating these applications to team members
  • Completing, maintaining and submitting clinical notes and records for all patients
  • Observing patient conditions and reporting changes to physicians and relevant team members
  • Assisting patients with daily living activities to facilitate self-sufficiency and comfort
  • Assisting patients, families and caregivers in providing strong continuity of care
  • Working with interdisciplinary teams to meet the emotional needs of patients, families and caregivers
  • Supervising ancillary personnel, as requested
  • Additional clinical and support services as requested by Clinical Coordinator/Director of Clinical Operations, or as needed by patients
