H2H is an innovative new model of care, built with feedback and collaboration from our patients, that is designed to enhance patient transitions from the hospital to the community. By decreasing clinical handoffs, giving patients a single point of contact, and reducing duplication, patients can transition from the hospital to home more seamlessly. H2H will initially support patients with cellulitis and/or urinary tract infections requiring short-term nursing interventions. H2H will later expand to support those with more complex needs following evaluation, feedback and experience with the initiative. The incumbent will work from one of three ER departments and/or in the patient’s home in the Central West community.
The REGISTERED PRACTICAL NURSE (RPN) is responsible and accountable for providing quality patient/family focused nursing care to a primarily palliative and End-of-Life patient population but may also provide care to other patient populations based on the needs of the program. As part of the interdisciplinary health team, the RPN will practice within their full scope to plan, organize and provide care to patients in accordance with the nursing philosophy and standards set by the Central West HCCSS in collaboration with CW HCCSS, WOHS, and HHCC and according to the standards of nursing practice of the College of Nurses of Ontario and within the Regulated Health Professionals Act legislation. Specifically the RPN will apply knowledge of nursing process, as it relates to scope of practice, to achieve identified patient goals when overall care needs are less complex, outcomes are predictable and risk of negative outcomes is low.
