Children’s Minnesota Hospital Medicine Program is a collaborative medical practice of pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners who specialize in the care of hospitalized infants, children and teenagers. This is a 24/7/365 on-site service at both the Minneapolis and St. Paul hospital campuses.
Essential Functions and Responsibilities:
The Hospitalist provides assessments and creates a medical plan of care for hospitalized patients on admission, daily, and upon discharge. The practitioner will collect and synthesize data from historical information, diagnostic tests, therapeutic interventions, and physical examination to determine diagnosis and appropriate intervention consistent with their scope of practice, experience, board certification, and organizational professional staff policy. The hospitalist works closely with the patient’s primary care practitioner, hospital sub-specialists, surgical staff, nursing staff, social workers and additional services as part of creating a comprehensive treatment plan for patients and their families during their hospital stay. Additionally, the hospitalist is expected to support and contribute to departmental and organizational efforts in patient safety, quality improvement, and clinical research, stewardship of resources and teaching of trainees.
To provide a safe, accessible and responsive service to our patient population the hospitalist team is required to provide on-site coverage days, evenings, nights, weekends and holidays. This is a shared expectation among the team of physicians and nurse practitioners with a minimum staffing of one physician and one nurse practitioner in the hospital 24/7. Back up coverage and call schedule requirements to be determined upon hire. Candidates are also expected to be available to work on both hospital campuses.
