Ochsner Health SystemCity, STATE,

I am currently a regional referral transfer nurse for Ochsner Health Systems. As a transfer nurse I connect Ochsner physicians and surgeons with referring physicians to facilitate transfer for patients that need a higher level of care and/or a facility that has services the patient requires. During the transfer process the appropriate clinical information is obtained, the patients are triage, to make sure they are transferred with the safest transport method and timeliness. As a transfer nurse the use of past experience and knowledge to understand the clinical presentation of the patient, the disease process, the vital signs, lab results, and special equipment patient's such as patient's with LVAD, Balloon Pump patient's plays a major role in the accurate placement of the patient. As a transfer nurse it is my responsibility to transfer the patient to the destination facility safely. I am responsible for that patient's safety during the transfer process and must know when to inform the referring nurse that the patient has to be stabilized prior to transportation process. As a transfer nurse I utilize my nursing knowledge, nursing education and background, along with my clinical experience to perform the duties that are required to transfer the patient safely.
