The NICU at Randall Children’s Hospital is a special place where tiny lives receive tremendous care for life-threatening or chronic conditions. As newborns, they are delicate and vulnerable, and so it’s our job to give them the best possible chance to thrive while showing their family members patience and compassion. As a NICU Technician, you can make a difference for newborn patients and their loved ones. You’ll provide basic patient care and unit support and tend to the daily operations of the centralized feeding prep mixing room. If you want to share our goal of making life better for others, please consider this opportunity.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Randall Children’s Hospital is a 45-bed unit that provides patient care services to newborn infants with acute and potentially life threatening conditions and chronic or disabling conditions resulting from prematurity, birth insult or trauma, or the presence of congenital defects. Infants are admitted directly from the Hospital’s adjacent Labor and Delivery Unit, or are transferred from other health care facilities within a geographic referral region.
The NICU Technician functions as part of a multi-disciplinary team to provide family-centered patient care. The NICU Technician provides basic patient care and unit support under the direct supervision of an RN. This role performs a broad range of tasks essential to safe and efficient patient care, but not requiring RN level licensure or skills.
The unit is equipped with a centralized feeding preparation mixing room to aid in the standardization of feeding recipes and the reduction of risk for iatrogenic milk-borne problems that can lengthen patient stay.
The NICU Technician is responsible for the daily operations of the centralized Mixing Room and provides assistance to the neonatal healthcare team by preparing all enteral feedings requiring mixing/supplementation using aseptic technique.
