The County of Sonoma is seeking qualified candidates to fill multiple intermittent Extra-Help Licensed Vocational Nurse I (LVN I) positions within the Behavioral Health Division of the Department of Health Services.
Note: These positions will be filled at the I or II level. If you are interested in applying at the II level, you will need to apply to the separate, concurrent recruitment being conducted for that classification.
The current positions are located in the division's Crisis Stabilization Unit where they distribute emergency psychiatric medications under the direction of a physician, and monitor patients for side effects and responses, including vital signs and behaviors, as directed by a psychiatrist. LVNs document patient behavioral health medical records and provide compassionate, recovery-oriented client care, including assistance with activities of daily living such as making beds and preparing meals. They also participate in various committees and meetings as directed by the unit manager, and order and maintain the inventory of psychiatric medications.
