our leadership team.
Director of Nursing (ADON) has 24-hr accountability and supports the Director of Clinical Services (DCS) with the delivery of efficient and effective nursing care
while achieving positive outcomes. Although, this is an administrative position
at times you may have to participate in direct patient care and round
frequently on the neighborhoods.
The Assistant Director of Nursing is responsible for Infection Prevention and Staff Development. The ADON will collaborate with the Medical Director on the facility Antimicrobial Stewardship program and will be accountable for decreasing the incidence and transmission of infectious diseases between patients/residents/ staff/visitors. Through strategic planning, leadership and consultation the ADON will lead the nursing team in the identification and implementation of infection prevention goals and objectives throughout the community.
The ADON assesses the educational needs of Duncaster across the continuum, including participating in monthly general orientation. As a leader you are expected to identify training needs and implement training programs to meet those needs. The position is responsible for ensuring residents and patients receive care from health service staff that is oriented, trained and educated to perform their duties in compliance with the Public Health Code and Duncaster policies.
In the absence of the DCS, the ADON assumes the duties and responsibilities of the DCS. This position is responsible for the clinical operations of Caleb Hitchcock and will have on-call responsibility.
