L4 is a 24 bedded, mixed gender, acute general medical ward. We usually see a high turn over of patients as we get acutely unwell admissions from A& E/ EAU. As a Band 5 nurse, it will be your responsibility to care for these patients and perform clinical duties to help improve their health until they can be discharged.

Main duties of the job

You will take responsibility for the care of your patient workload, this involves admitting them to the ward and treating them for the illness they have presented with.

At times, you may be expected to co-ordinate the shift as nurse in charge if you are the most senior nurse on shift. This will require good communication and leadership skills as well as confidence in decision making.

You must work with the healthcare assistants on the ward to ensure all patients are cared for in a dignified manner i.e ensuring personal care is carried out.
