A Life-Changing Career

Responsibilities: The Admission and Transfer Center (ATC) nurses must have a high acuity background with excellent triage and assessment skills. The ATC nurse is at the center of the patient transfer requests for Mayo Clinic Hospital- Rochester and multiple Mayo Clinic Health System hospitals, and patient safety must be the focus of all interactions. They will assess and triage patient clinical information as shared by the referring provider and utilize process flows, emergent and/or specialty algorithms and admission guidelines to assign patient at the right facility, at the right level of care with the right admitting service. The ATC facilitates conference calls between the referring provider and accepting physician. If patient concerns are identified, they communicate these concerns to the multidisciplinary team, including the referring provider and the receiving nursing unit for patient safety. The goals for the Midwest Admission and Transfer Center are: identification of the right patient; obtaining the right clinical information; determine the right level of care; the right accepting Mayo Clinic hospital and right accepting physician service. Determining the right level of care may necessitate the involvement of specific emergency telemedicine services. The ATC activates and supports emergency telemedicine services for specific patient populations. The ATC nurse maintains a comprehensive view of the patient admission and transfer process including helping to identify emergency transport needs and has a close partnership with the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) to expedite helicopter, fixed wing and critical care transport needs and requests.
