Hospital Support Nurse - AAERC

The AAERC Workplace
The Adelaide Animal Emergency and Referral Centre (AAERC) is a twenty-four-hour emergency and referral centre for small animals. We offer care to companion animals from referring clinics in the disciplines of emergency medicine, specialist surgery, medicine, dentistry, cardiology and imaging.

We are a group of over sixty staff including specialists, veterinarians, radiographers, nursing, management and support staff backed by facilities, equipment and supplies. All focused on providing patient care to the South Australian pet community.

On a day to day basis the clinic is looked after by our management team; Henk, Elisha and Sophie. The management team are here to support you and help you develop in your role.

Your Job
The role of the hospital support nurse (HSN) is to provide support to nursing and veterinary staff within our clinic through cleaning, animal attending and nursing duties. This is a critical enabling role in the clinic and requires some versatility on behalf of the employee.

Core Responsibilities
Cleaning - this includes the cleaning of cages, runs, laundry, floors, drains, walls, doors, staff facilities, offices and toilets. This vital task enables clinic operations, ensuring hygiene and cleanliness. and restocking throughout the whole clinic
Animal Attendant – this includes covering for nurses for breaks, answering phones, and assisting nursing staff with animal restraint, patient care (walking, grooming & feeding) and patient checks.
Nursing – at times you will be asked to fill in for a nurse/receptionist in any of our departments. This includes patient care/monitoring, assisting with surgical procedures, anaesthesia monitoring, assisting veterinary staff, liaising with clients, reception tasks and cleaning theatres, instruments etc…

Qualifications
This HSN is a very diverse roll. It will require the person to be self-driven and be able to work both autonomously and as a part of a team. The HSN will also need to be able to be very flexible in their daily work as things could change at a moment’s notice.

It is desirable that the HSN has completed Certificate 4 in veterinary nursing or is in the final stages of completing it. A minimum of three years of working in a busy general practice is also desirable. Experience of working in an emergency centre is advantageous.

Training
At the AAERC we pride ourselves on the high standard of care we give to our patients. As you can see, the role has a lot of technical requirements and calls for a great diversity of skills. As a part of the opportunity for growing in this role the AAERC will offer on the job training throughout the departments. This may be directed by management and/or by the employee’s interest.

Hours
There are two HSN positions. Both HSN will be a part of a two-week rotating roster. Week one will see one nurse work the morning shift 6am to 1.30pm, Monday to Friday. The second HSN will work the afternoon shift 1.30pm to 8pm. It is expected that the afternoon shift will be able to stay on until 11.30pm if covering for an afternoon nursing shift. A degree of flexibility with hours is needed as if multiple nursing shifts are needed to be filled then time off may be given for extra hours worked.

Rates of Pay
We pay according to the Veterinary Nurses Award. Individual rates can be worked out based on personal details and level of education. The package includes superannuation, Workcover, an annual CE allowance and the normal award leave and penalty rate provisions.

Final Note
This position is not a job for the feint hearted.

We support our referring clinics by seeing their patients out of hours or the cases that don’t fall within their expertise. This means that we see a lot of severely sick animals. We deal with death almost daily.

Sometimes there can be high stress levels due to cases or an unavoidable high workload. Our veterinary staff have high expectations of our nursing staff and rely on them heavily.

The flip side is the rewarding hands-on and personal development you will gain from this position along with a strong team supporting and guiding you.

If this role is the right one for you, and you would like to become part of the dynamic AAERC team, please email your application, including a cover letter and resume, outlining your suitability against the above mentioned criteria to:
