The Section of Emergency Medicine is seeking a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant to provide diagnostic evaluation and management of acute medical complaints for children and adults, presenting to the Emergency Department, or being observed in the ED's Clinical Decision Unit (CDU). Care for CDU patients will be based on problem specific evaluation and management protocols. Primary responsibilities for all assigned patients include ordering diagnostic testing, obtaining consultations, performing simple procedures within the associate provider's scope of practice, prescribing medications, directing the administration of medications by nursing staff, and ensuring an appropriate disposition plan. Assigned patients will be cared for in the ED FAST Track, CDU, or general ED. Most assigned patients will be low-acuity, however higher acuity patients may occasionally be assigned to the associate provider at the discretion of the ED attending physician and cared for under that physician's supervision. Note that Physician Assistants provide all care under the oversight of their registered supervising physician.
