Purple Balm, a local care provider, are looking to work alongside a registered paediatric nurse on an ad hoc, contract, basis. This is an ideal opportunity for a training company or self employed person who is able to offer us hourly support as and when required.
We currently support a small number of children with more complex needs and are looking for a paediatric nurse to assist us in the training and assessment of the competencies of the support workers that care for these children overnight.
Essential requirements are:
Registered Children’s Nurse Experience of teaching and assessing clinical skills
Experience of respiratory management including tracheostomy and NIV
Experience of gastrostomy management and intermittent catheterisation
Currently we have six carers supporting three children. They require annual competencies and refresher training (if deemed necessary). We can provide generic classroom training but would require any client specific training and competency signed off.
There is the potential to do the assessing in liaison with their schools or otherwise in the very late evening within the child’s home.
