Are you looking for more? More autonomy, more innovative care and more engagement as a valued member of the team? We're looking for you - a highly motivated respiratory therapist who wants to collaborate with nurses, physicians and others using RT-driven protocols to provide exceptional care for our patients. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital is a 525-bed academic medical center and the region's only Level I trauma center. We are also the proud home of Nightingale, the first hospital-based air ambulance in Virginia. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital includes Sentara Heart Hospital, the area's first and only dedicated heart hospital. Within our variety of high-acuity, highly specialized units, we have nine ICUs (including burns, neuro, vascular, cardiac, general medicine and progressive ventilation). As a respiratory therapist at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, you will learn a multitude of advanced practices such as the use of esophageal balloon-guided ventilation, advanced ventilator strategies including lung protective ventilation and monitoring of indices that have been proven to reduce ventilator induce lung injury (VILI). Our respiratory-driven protocols afford our therapists the ability to use all of the tools in their tool belts (use of APRV, Volumetric Diffusive Respiration etc.). Our department's proactive approach is applauded and encourage by our physicians, nurses and other colleagues. But don't take our word for it - listen to what they have to say here. Our team also believes in setting you up for success. So we created a residency program to give new hires the tools and support they need to succeed. We train our therapists not only to be able to perform a task, but the science and reason behind it. We encourage our therapists to be proactive, think outside the box and ask questions. We understand the importance of balancing your home life with your work life too. So we provide self-scheduling to support our team's needs.
