"QuadMed Clinics" Licensed Vocational Nurse,4540568768&key=18513229&c=879887026576&pagestamp=sesjmpixepnxgkjwfi

“Job Title: LVN

Job Description: QuadMed Clinics of California is hiring an LVN for our new clinic located onsite at Amy's Kitchen in Santa Rosa, California. QuadMed Clinics of California is the leader in employer-sponsored healthcare, dedicated to providing employees with comprehensive, accessible care and superior evidence-based medicine and our innovative practices focus on wellness and prevention.

• Maintain accurate, detailed reports and records and monitor symptoms and changes in patients'


• Assist in the modification of patient treatment plans as indicated by patients' responses and conditions.

• Consult and coordinate with internal and external partners to plan patients' health activities.

This is an on-call/temporary position based on the needs of the clinic. The hours will be daytime, Monday through Friday, and may include some non-traditional hours to accommodate patient accessibility.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will have at least one year of experience working in a clinic setting and familiarity with practice management software and electronic medical records. Current California LVN license and CPR certification required. This position also requires great attention to detail, excellent patient nursing and education skills, and a caring personality. Bilingual Spanish skills required.”

That’s quite a lot for one person to do: Make re-stocking trips on the corporate campus, use a medical records database, and even treat ill employees en route to the emergency room. So QuadMedical/Technical/Graphics wants their Licensed Vocational Nurses to also be EMTs? The disclosure that the position might be temporary indicates poor job security for the hired individual(s) despite the bevy of qualifications required: not only the usual medical training for LVN, but also competency in Spanish, the ability to teach, and a “caring personality.” I guess uncaring LVNs typically work in nursing homes.
