Unit Profile

The Emergency Department is a 54 bed unit that serves the communities of Halton, Halton Hills and the surrounding areas. Last year, we had approximately 78,000 visits although the number is estimated to climb to 81,000 this year.

Our ED serves patients of all ages and treats patients of every medical and mental health illness.

Our ED has uniquely built in a 5 bed mental health unit and a dedicated DI cluster to better service our patients.

Our roaming triage model helps us to quickly triage patients and deploy them to the most appropriate area of the department where they will be treated.

Our 24-hour staff are fortunate to be comprised of nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and many other members of a very robust multidisciplinary team. Dedicated internal medicine in the ED working with two nurse practitioners helps to ensure comprehensive assessments of patients for timely referrals and/or admission.

Providing clinical leadership in the care of admitted patients and families inthe Emergency Department; you will work collaboratively with the interdisciplinary team; ED CRN, Patient Flow and inpatient units to meet optimal patient care needs. With the ED nursing leadership team, work to create a patient and family centered environment, with an emphasis on patient safety, evidence-based clinical practice and building a positive environment for patients, families, nursing, medical staff and interdisciplinary colleagues exemplifying our Respectful Workplace Policy.

You will facilitate evidence-based nursing practice and coordinate the day-to-day clinical oversight for admitted patients within the ED, including oversight of equipment and supplies and assigning nursing resources according to patient acuity and staff skills in Zone D of the ED.

Should ED’s Zone D close intermittently owing to low numbers of admitted patients in the ED, this role would continue to collaborate with inpatient unit CRNs, Patient Flow and the ED CRN and focus on both safe, quality care of this patient population and the flow to inpatient beds, and other operational needs as determined by the ED leadership team
