MEDIKO Correctional Healthcare is proud to provide medical and mental health services to correctional facilities, ranging from 100 to greater than 2,000 inmate patients. This has enabled us to meet or exceed the fullest spectrum of healthcare services for correctional facilities of all sizes.
As a MEDIKO Nurse, you’ll treat patients who typically go without any access to health care. For patients that reside in a corrections or psychiatric hospital environment, the care you provide may be the only friendly, compassionate and non-judgmental interaction they encounter in their day. The result is that our patients are incredibly appreciative of your work and you can take pride in the care you provide. Our nurses spend less time on documentation and paperwork than in most other healthcare environments, allowing them to focus on doing what is right for the patient.
Practice Care the Way You’ve Always Wanted
We need nurses who bring knowledge and skills from areas such as ambulatory care, emergency room, acute care, chronic care, infirmary care and more. Our nurses have autonomy when caring for patients and you will use your strong assessment skills to quickly identify risk factors and provide quality patient care. When you do need help or guidance, an experienced professional will be there to support you.
