Position Summary

Touching Lives! Room for Growth! Independent Practice! These are a few of the descriptions of Interior Health’s High Acuity Response Team Program.

We are seeking a critical care trained, experienced transport nurse to be part of our High Acuity Response Team (HART). This program brings the critical care nurse and team to the patient in the outlying hospitals who requires critical care. The patient is then stabilized and transported out to the most appropriate facility to receive the higher level of care needed. Our HART nurses perform on average one transport/day with the majority of calls at a CTAS II level or higher.

Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) provides hospital services to residents of the Kootenay Boundary Health Service Area. Services include 24-hour emergency services, intensive care, general surgery, obstetrics, renal, and psychiatry. KBRH’s HART covers the Kootenay Boundary catchment area, from Grand Forks to the west, Nakusp and Kaslo to the north, Creston to the east, and the US border to the south, providing critical care in outlying facilities and getting patients to the best available care as quickly as possible.

When not involved in transports, HART member’s are integrated into acute areas where they are supported by local Medical Directors and clinical managers. Full cross training is provided for all critical care areas.

If you like a challenge when you work and choices when you play, Interior Health is the place for you! Apply Today!!!
