Henry Ford at Home Acute Care Registered Nurse (ACRN) – Henry Ford Health System


Henry Ford Health System is offering a unique opportunity for individuals interested in being part of an organization that is leading the country in redefining the way care is provided to patients. Henry Ford’s Hospital at Home model brings all the essential elements of inpatient care to the comfort and convenience of a patient’s home. The model delivers high-quality, safe, and affordable care to patients with non-life-threatening conditions. With Henry Ford, you will have the opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of patients and be on the cutting edge of a pioneering space in the health care industry. 

About the Role

Like their hospital counterparts, the ACRN will be responsible for starting the patient’s care which includes performing a comprehensive nursing assessment, medication reconciliation, safety assessments, and implementing standardized protocols. The difference is the ACRN partners with a dedicated hospitalist team, a Recovery Care Coordinator, as well as community paramedic partners and suppliers to provide comprehensive, timely, hospital level care in the comfort of the patient’s home!  After the start of care visit, patients receive ACRN visits at least 2 times per day. During these visits, the ACRN will assess the patient’s condition, administer prescribed medications (typically intravenously), obtain lab samples, provide therapeutic interventions, and educate the patient and family members on how to manage their illness; all with a goal of restoring the health and stability of the patient. During the morning visit, the ACRN will participate in virtual rounds with the hospitalist provider and patient. The Recovery Care Coordinator will work remotely with the ACRN to assure needed supplies are at the patient’s house, arrange transportation and follow-up appointments, and follow-up with the provider as labs, tests, and imaging results become available. 

This is a great opportunity for an experienced RN that enjoys connecting one on one with patients while providing highly skilled care! Because our ACRNs provide hospital-level care in the home, 1 year of inpatient or home health care experience is highly desired, and experience providing nursing care in the home, community, or clinic is very beneficial. Current license RN license in State of Michigan and reliable transportation are required.
