The Non-Emergency Newborn Transport Nurse (Registered Nurse) is
responsible for the safe inter-hospital transfer of newborns and infants
from Neonatal Intensive Care Units or Special Care Nurseries in the
Greater Sydney Metropolitan area to an appropriate hospital closer to the
patient's home. In addition an inpatient within the scope of this service
may require a specialist appointment at a tertiary neonatal facility and
will be transported by the non-emergency transport nurse for the
appointment and back to the patient's local health care facility.
Another key function of this position includes scheduling of patients for
bookings, transfer and appointments from the Patient Flow Portal.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new service performing
newborn transfers using specialised transport units in NETS ambulances
working with an Emergency Vehicle Operator (EVO) whilst moving these
patients throughout metropolitan and regional NSW. In addition, as a
clinician you will be able to work autonomously whilst engaging with the
wider NSW health network.
Candidates have the option to nominate to work out of the NETS State
Headquarters at Bankstown Aerodrome or the satellite base in South Nowra.
