About LCMC Health
We’re a New Orleans-based, non-profit health system on a mission: to provide
the best possible care for every person and parish in Louisiana and beyond,
and to put a little more heart and soul into healthcare along the way. And
that means we do things a little differently around here.
Treating people like family is the LCMC Health way, and it always has been.
Founded by Louisiana’s only freestanding children’s hospital, we’ve grown into
a healthcare system that’s built to serve the unique needs of our communities
Today, we offer five hospital locations: Children’s Hospital, Touro,
University Medical Center New Orleans, New Orleans East Hospital, and West
Jefferson Medical Center. We also offer a network of urgent care centers
across the greater New Orleans area. With over 2,000 board-certified
physicians specializing in everything from head to toe, our community can
count on us to provide the right care, right where they need it.

The Adult Acute care is responsible for delivery of professional nursing care
according to the established policies of the department, West Jefferson
Medical Center and the Louisiana State Board of Nursing. The Acute Adult
Health RN is a direct patient care provider who demonstrates the knowledge and
skills necessary to provide care to acutely ill adult and geriatric patients
with cardiac, medical, surgical, and post critical care needs. Typical direct
care patients include those who are at minimal-to-moderately high risk and to
a large extent care is routine, standardized and outcomes are predictable. The
Acute Adult Health RN must also be able to identify cardiac rhythms and
intervene appropriately in the care of cardiac, medical and surgical patients
with and without cardiac diagnosis.
