This RN provides pre-operative evaluation and medical screening of patients having anesthesia for a surgery or procedure, by reviewing and evaluating internal and external medical and other relevant documents, and conducting a pre-operative phone interview of the patient in a fast-paced call center environment. The RN will apply critical thinking processes for identification and scoring of identified and potential risk factors of surgical patients, and collaborate with the surgical team for pre-operative assessment, recommendations and management. Throughout the evaluative process, the RN will teach and instruct patients on pre-operative care management and coordinate care with the physician, patient and staff. The RN is responsible for maintaining efficient patient flow, clinical assessment, planning, initiating medical interventions and diagnostic work-ups, and communicating with patient/family/physician regarding any medical issues that may hinder or prevent surgery/treatment plans. The RN will utilize problem solving, systems planning and patient care management skills in a high volume work environment, and will complete approximately 1 or more patient charts an hour.
