Placement Coordination Nurse

The Placement Coordination Nurse has several roles in assuring the safe and timely placement of patients into and within the organization. He/she fields calls from physicians who want to transfer or admit their patients to the organization for urgent or specialty treatment; applies clinical expertise to prioritize or 'time' admissions; works with care providers and sending facilities to coordinate a plan for each patient's arrival; and then works with many others at the hospital to prepare for the patient's arrival and care. In a sense, he/she is a traffic controller and logistics manager: optimizing information transfer, safe bed assignment, and timely patient flow within the organization; and assuring appropriate utilization of, and subsequent reimbursement for, hospital resources. Critical thinking, collaborative decision making, and caring customer service are essential.
