Orchid Care Home is purpose-built, with 84 single ensuite rooms for residents who require nursing care, some have mental health issues such as dementia, and some need end-of-life care. Our residents are supported by our skilled and dedicated teams to have maximum choice and control of their lives in the least restrictive way possible.
We have opened a new unit in our beautiful and friendly home, and we need a Registered Nurse (RGN/RMN) with excellent clinical skills and experience of working in a nursing home. We need flexible and compassionate people to help us deliver the type of care you’d want your own relatives to have. This is a Bank position to provide cover as and when we need it, such as for annual leave or sick leave, so the hours and days you work will vary.
With a thoughtful and dynamic approach to providing person centred care, you‘ll be responsible for developing care plans, administering medication and generally ensuring the safety and welfare of all our residents. Promoting best practice within the team to maintain our high standards of care, and maintaining an oversight of all recording, you will also supervise team members to ensure effective team working. You may also be involved with induction, mentoring and training staff as directed. Along with all of the day-to-day tasks there will be the requirement to participate in quality assurance audits.
All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of adults. Successful applicants are required to provide an enhanced DBS disclosure at their own expense. You will of course, need to have a valid NMC PIN, have experience in a care setting, and be available occasionally to work weekend and evening shifts.
Covid vaccinations: If offered employment, you must produce evidence that you have either commenced or completed the vaccination programme. If not, you must agree to have both vaccinations, commencing the programme at the first available opportunity. All care home staff need to be fully vaccinated by 11th November 2021, or prove medical exemption. This is a legal requirement and applies to everyone working in a care home.
We invest in our staff in training and development above the national guidelines as we recognise our staff are the key to our success. Recruiting and retaining the right staff is paramount. We do this by valuing their input and empowering them throughout their roles.
