FUNCTION OF JOB

Augment a physician's ability to provide patient care services by independently and interdependently scheduling, supervising, and/or conducting complex diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac or cancer procedures; independently participate in the delivery of direct cardiac or cancer patient care within the scope of the individual authority granted by the North Carolina State Board of Medical Examiners.

CHARACTERISTIC WORK

This classification is distinguished from the other two physician assistant classifications by its emphasis on either providing managed patient care on the floor (intern replacements), assisting with surgeries, or acting as resident replacement . In either case the patients are considered to be critically ill, therefore a higher level of decision making and responsibility is required on a daily basis.

1. Perform complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in diagnosing medical and surgical problems and prescribing necessary treatment and service for quality patient care; record data and tentative conclusions for review by physician.


2. Coordinate and schedule laboratory studies and diagnostic procedures; explain the necessity, preparation, nature and anticipated effects of scheduled diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to the patient.

3 Carry out patient care services under indirect physician supervision such as wound suturing and dressing changes; monitor progress of patients, maintain a record of the patient's progress, and consult with supervising physician when patient's progress does not meet anticipated and/or predetermined criteria.

4 Plan and schedule work for the physician's health team ensuring proper distribution of assignments and adequate manning, space and facilities for subsequent performance of assigned duties.


5 Perform other related duties incidental to the work described herein.
