Night Nurse / Sterile Resources Technician
responsible for monitoring post-surgical patients and ensuring instruments are free of pathogenic organisms
Are you organized and detail oriented? Are you a perfectionist? Are you self-directed and enjoy working mostly on your own?
If you are interested in joining the Azzore team, you may send us your resume by fax (479) 964-4306, by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or by snail mail to Azzore Veterinary Specialists, 2711 E Parkway Dr, Russellville AR 72802.
Your primary responsibility will be to monitor any post-surgical patients overnight. This includes hourly TPR’s. You will also clean, repack and sterilize (use of steam and gas autoclaves) surgical instruments and other packs that are used by our surgeon on a daily basis. As time allows, you will restock/update supply lists, and perform general hospital cleanup as required.
The last work day of each month, all inventoried supplies, parts, and medications will need to be counted.
This is a very routine and mostly solitary job. If you are very detail and task-oriented, enjoy working night shift, and like working by yourself (after you have been trained and are proficient at our packs, of course!) this could be the perfect position for you! Computer skills are a big plus. Wage is negotiable (based on education and experience).
The position currently available is three or four nights a week (Mon-Thurs) from 12:00 midnight until 8:00 AM. If you require a set number of work hours or a guaranteed monthly income this is not the job for you.
