The Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) Nurse is an exciting opportunity
to apply your knowledge and experience to acutely ill patients that
are receiving their hospitalization at home. Once a patient is
determined by the hospital to meet inpatient hospitalization
criteria, the MIH Nurse is dispatched to the patient's home to set
up their "hospital room" in the privacy of their own home. This
involves establishing remote monitoring technology, conducting
physical assessments, medication reconciliation, assisting with
medication administration, and any other tasks deemed necessary for
the patient as directed by the provider team. You will work in
collaboration with an RN who functions as the patients' primary
nurse and provider team that is responsible for the ongoing
oversight and care of the patient, serving as their hands, eyes,
and ears. Throughout the patient's hospital course, you will be
dispatched to patients' homes to provide direct patient care as
directed by the primary care team to ensure patients continue to
receive the same, if not better, high-quality care they would
receive in a brick-and-mortar hospital.

The MIH Nurse utilizes this same technology as they provide patient
care. The MIH Nurse role is an exciting opportunity to be pioneers
in a new innovative care model of treating acutely ill patients in
the comfort of their own home leading to better patient outcomes.
