President & CEO of Vail Health Talks About the Opportunities Offered

About the Position

For a Registered Nurse working with our Plastics team, you will work alongside the surgeon and support staff in order to achieve the patient's desired results. You will be in contact with the patient before, during, and after their surgery to assist with a number of tasks. Prior to the plastic surgery, you will screen the patient as well as review their medical and surgical history. During the patient's procedure, you may be directly involved in administering treatments, or you may be assisting with preparing the surgical suite and monitoring the patient throughout. Following any procedures, you will educate the patient and their family on post-op expectations and care.
