The posting was for a clinic, OP didn't mention EP lab . . ? ?
, did you contact the clinic to inquire about the job description and requirements, as well as the nursing duties?
At our hospital we have an EP nurse who runs the clinic, following pts with pacemakers and ICDs and referring pts who need the units placed.
Vendor reps attend the clinics (each vendor has a day for their clinic), are available for consultation, interrogating and interpreting the data.
We in the Cath Lab set up and scrub in on the pacemakers and ICDs but the EP MD and the Fellows actually choose and place the leads.
We always have a rep. from the vendor in the room, for prn assistance and for testing the leads and unit.
Previous place of employment was the same: RNs scrubbed in on pacers to help hand instruments, assist the MD and maintain the sterile field, while another RN sedated and monitored the pt.
The MDs followed the pts in clinic.
