Overview

***$10,000 SIGN-ON BONUS for full-time, External Hires*** 

 

Are you an exceptionally motivated nurse practitioner or physician assistant with urgent care or emergency medicine experience?

 

Do you want to provide home-based urgent care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are frail, elderly, and ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system?

 

Have you often thought that the problems these patients face are beyond the means of traditional healthcare, and wanted to be part of the solution?

 

If you answered yes, then you may be our Urgentivist team’s next Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician Assistant (PA). Our Advanced Practice Providers (APP) are equipped with medications and medical supplies necessary to diagnose and treat a wide variety of medical conditions. They are dispatched by our call center teams to patient’s home to provide the necessary urgent medical care. Because we are able to bring urgent care into the patient’s homes, our teams are able to provide critical intervention for our patients – often reducing or eliminating the need for an emergency room visit or providing necessary care to patients who may have otherwise suffered from complications because they did not want to leave their home.

 

How do we manage to do that? Through teamwork and technology. As an Urgentivist Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant, you would be partnering with our talented and committed clinical and support teams. You would have the resources of our custom electronic medical records (EMR) program, comprehensive mobile medical technology system and dedicated technical support department.

 

At the end of every day, you will have worked toward a shared vision of maximizing quality of life for our most medically vulnerable patients.

 

Note: This is a full-time position with some on-call hours. Multiple shifts are available.

Responsibilities

As a Landmark urgent care provider, you will:

  • Triage, diagnose, and where appropriate, provide in-home medical care to avoid unnecessary transfers and acute admissions
  • Order and interpret appropriate tests including x-rays, labs, and EKGs to diagnose, prescribe and treat within the provider’s scope of practice and consistent with the standards of care
  • Perform minor surgical procedures, such as wound closure and wound management, I&D, and foreign body removal
  • Start IVs and administer IV medications and fluids; administer medications via IM, SQ, and nebulizer; and utilize other skills including phlebotomy, ear lavage, epistaxis management, and urinary catheter insertion
  • Following the visit, promptly communicate findings with the PCP and specialist(s) as needed
  • Communicate and collaborate with the PCP, assigned Landmark primary provider and interdisciplinary team in achieving patient’s care goals

Qualifications

        • Completion of Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician Assistant (PA-C) accredited program
        • 2+ years of clinical NP or PA experience preferred
        • Knowledge of clinical standards of care
        • Current unrestricted NP or PA state license, and current state driver’s license
        • Passion for delivering care to patients with complex, chronic illnesses
        • Willingness to conduct house calls
        • Access to reliable transportation to conduct patient visits required; if you are driving a vehicle, you must comply with all the terms of the Landmark Motor Vehicle Safety policy.
      • Full COVID-19 vaccination is an essential requirement of this role. Landmark Health will adhere to all federal, state and local regulations as well as all client requirements and will obtain necessary proof of vaccination prior to employment to ensure compliance.
