The Emergency Department at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Beeville is committed to creating an atmosphere of quality care and efficient service. We are a Level IV Adult Trauma Center, with 11 treatment rooms and dedicated areas for trauma, cardiac, stroke, and pediatric patients. The Emergency Department is a clinical environment suited to those who prefer a fast turnover of patients, a relatively fast pace and, it seems, a never ending workload. Many of us have of course worked in other areas gaining various levels of knowledge and expertise and have transferred to the ED where the term â€œJack of All Trades â€œ is a common place reference to our skill set!
We collectively strive on a daily basis to ensure that our patients are given the best care we can administer. It is essential that everyone appreciates their value in such a team in order to help us achieve this.
In our Emergency Department we recognize the difficulty to balance a challenging career with a busy personal life. It takes some creativity to do it and we want to help you. To us nurse staffing is more than a numbers games. We made the commitment to empower and appreciate nurses by offering a flexible schedule. Here you are in charge of your schedule. The self-scheduling lets you work the shifts that suit your family life. For as long as the departmental needs are met, everyone gets to pick their own work schedule.
