Role Description

The team is part of Bendigo Health’s Acute Ambulatory and Critical Care Stream. The ward comprises of two units which work together to provide access to care for patients requiring a short admission to hospital.

 The Short Stay Observational Unit (SSOU) admits approximately 8,000 patients each year and is staffed by a dedicated team of professionals including emergency medicine specialist doctors, nurses and clerical staff. The SSOU actively supports patient flow through the Emergency Department by providing targeted care for patients requiring short-term hospitalisation (more than 4 hours of care but no longer than 24 hours) and who are on a defined pathway to discharge.

 The Assessment and Treatment Unit (ATU) is a mixed medical/surgical unit that provides access to care for patients requiring a length of stay of no more than 72 hours. The primary cohort of patients consist of those requiring cardiac care, both medical and surgical management. Patients are cared for by their respective inpatient speciality team and have a defined pathway to discharge. The unit staffs a three bed complex care unit.

The primary responsibilities of the Short Stay/ATU Associate Nurse Unit Manager (ANUM) are to optimise the patient flow through the organisation and ensure that patient care is delivered in a safe and timely manner. This will be achieved by working in partnership with the NUM, Duty Medical Consultant and Patient Access and Demand Manager to coordinate bed requests, facilitate timely patient transfers and influence discharge planning with the intention to meet SSOU and Inpatient Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
