$210 / hour
Job description

• Facility: Cambridge Medical Center

• Unit: Adult Mental Health Unit.

• The site’s most pressing need would be for an inpatient psychiatrist. But if a provider would be willing to do a mix of inpatient and outpatient that would work as well. Straight outpatient would not be ideal at this time.

• Profession: Psychiatrist

• Ideal start date: June 2019

• Length of need: Until position is permanently filled

• Amount of coverage needed per month: 5 days a week and occasional weekend call shifts.

• Shift times: Daytime, with some weekend call shifts

• Frequency of Weekday Call Requirement: This is variable and dependent on what the provider desires.

• Their regular onsite providers have had no issues with doing overnight calls once per week.

• Some providers opt to do 1-2 shifts per month. They also have providers that have chosen to do no overnight call at all.

• Frequency of Weekend Call Requirement: 1 in 6 but could be variable based on provider preference. The expectation for weekend call is to see all 14 patients in person at least once over the weekend and then be available for telephone requests for the remainder of the weekend.

• Providers are expected to handle any consults, admits or discharges that come up during a shift.

• Consult requests do frequently arise on weekend shifts (typically one at most), but you can go some weekends with no consults at all.

• Department Description: The unit is a 14 bed unit that sees adult mental health inpatients. Mid- acuity level. There is an outpatient psychiatric clinic next to the unit, along with a partial hospitalization and day treatment facility. The unit is located on the Cambridge Medical Center campus.

• Average Number of Patients Seen Per Day: On the 14 bed inpatient unit, the MD provider sees 8-10 pts daily while the NPs typically take between 2-4 patients.

• In the outpatient clinic it is standard for providers to see between 8-10 patients daily if working full time in the clinic.

• Time Allotted per Patient: Outpatient Clinic – 60minute intakes and 30 minute follow ups. Inpatient is variable based on case load and how much time the provider would like to spend per patient.

• Is the LT provider required to supervise other healthcare providers? Yes – the LT would supervise the NP on the inpatient unit and cosign notes for another NP working in PHP.

• The PHP currently accommodates 8 patients. These patients will be rounded on 2-3 times per week. Rounds for PHP patients are typically done during a staffing meeting.

• NPs in the outpatient clinic operate independently and do not require supervision.
