Description

UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital is currently hiring full time Professional Staff Nurses to support our obstetric (OB) units. Our OB units include:

 

·       Labor and Delivery- an extraordinarily high volume maternity unit dedicated to caring for patients experiencing normal/natural child birth, as well as complicated high risk deliveries, patients with drug addictions, and pregnancy loss. The Labor & Delivery Department houses 5 operating rooms and 10 PACU bays directly on the unit. You will work with many different OB disciplines and providers with various approaches to child birth—including family practice physicians, OB attending physicians, and midwives.

·       Mother/Baby (3700/3800)- a 56-bed Mother Baby unit providing service and care to mother-baby couplets who are well, but additionally treating mothers with pre-eclampsia, newborns whose mothers are diagnosed with chorioamnionitis, high risk postpartum conditions such as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, and surgical patients who have undergone C-section, post-partum tubal ligation, and/or hysterectomy during childbirth. This is a fast-paced unit that provides staff with the extremely rewarding opportunity to impact and educate new families as well as work through adoption and surrogate scenarios.

·       Antepartum (2800)- a 28-bed high risk antepartum unit with a welcoming staff and a teamwork-focused environment. Our work includes non-stress tests, stent and cerclage placements, and wound debridement; we partner closely with the physician team to care for high risk pregnancies, preterm labor, C-sections, and methadone conversions, as well as delivered patients with infants admitted to the NICU and fetal demise mothers. Due to the nature of the unit, our patients can experience very high highs and very low lows, and are in need of uniquely compassionate attention and care.


Our RNs on all OB units work a rotating schedule to ensure 24/7 coverage on the floor, including rotating holidays and weekend.
