Critical Care / Emergency Nurse – Cariboo Memorial Hospital

Position Summary

We are seeking qualified Critical Care or Emergency Nurses to become members of our combined Critical Care / Emergency team.

Cariboo Memorial Hospital (CMH) is a community hospital within Interior Health and plays an important role in meeting the healthcare needs of the people in the Williams Lake and surrounding areas. Because CMH is a rural site, our nurses do it all and receive a wide range of experience.

Currently the ED has one trauma room, a minor surgery room, five monitoring bays, a gyne room that is also the negative pressure room, a designated observation unit, a 5 bed respiratory isolation unit and a two-bay cast room. The HAU has 3 high acuity beds all of which can accept ventilated patients, and one step down bed. Over the next 3 years the hospital will be undergoing a massive expansion to the ED, MHSU, OR, and Med/Surge wards as well as many of the support service areas. This growth will increase the depth, breadth and volume of services provided at the facility; along with this growth will come an increase in the number of specialty and non-specialty positions at the site.

Our ED sees approximately 21,000 patient visits a year and the staffing complement consists of a RN/LPN mix, ED Physician coverage 24/7 and on site internal medicine physicians. Our critical care department is also supported by critical care transport teams from BCEHS and the HART program. The hospital has a robust complement of anesthetic, surgical and OB/Gyne coverage. The ER Department is a tight knit group that works as an interdisciplinary team, have a great rapport and receive consistent physician support.

This is a Casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary from 0 - 37.5 hours per week. Casual employment includes: short-notice, on-call availability; workload coverage during a temporary absence; and/or providing relief coverage in a specific position. Once hired into a casual role, employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent part-time or full time positions. There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual positions and lead to regular employment.
