Advocate Advocate Health Care eICU
At Advocate Health Care, we now offer lifesaving technology that is unparalleled in the Chicagoland area. Today, our intensive care units (ICUs) have cutting-edge technologies that feature 24/7 simultaneous audio and video monitoring of ICU patients at all of our hospitals, all from one central command center located in Oak Brook. And that means outstanding career opportunities for health care professionals.
Never before have we dedicated more resources, technologies, training, and staff as we have in our new eICU Care Program. This is not only the largest eICU Program in the country monitoring up to 242 adult critical care patients within 8 hospitals and 15 separate ICUs, but it's one of the most sophisticated in terms of lifesaving technologies as well.
Our aim is to tremendously enhance the quality of care we provide while also significantly reducing complications, length of a patient's stay, and overall health care costs. This advanced system supplements regular visits by a patient's health care team members and is just another example of our commitment to outstanding patient care.
When you join the eICU staff, you join a dedicated team of professionals who all share your commitment to uncompromising patient care. Here, we are committed to working with the bedside team to provide excellent care to the patients within the Units throughout the system. Your fellow eICU nursing professionals are experienced and knowledgeable critical care nurses-all with a minimum of three years of critical care experience and possessing ACLS certification. Additionally, our Health Care Assistants (HCAs) are adept at working with computer systems and have good communication skills. Most have experience within the medical field and knowledge of medical terminology (although it is not required for the position). Both RNs and HCAs work 12 hour shifts (7A.M.-7P.M. and 7P.M.-7A.M.).
If you have advanced critical thinking skills, excellent communication skills, and are looking for a unique opportunity to work in the nation's largest and most sophisticated eICUs, take a closer look at Advocate Health Care.
