Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare birth defect affecting approximately one in 3,000 fetuses. CDH occurs when the diaphragm (the muscle separating the chest from the abdomen) does not form properly during fetal development. This results in a hole in the diaphragm and allows the abdominal organs to migrate into the chest. This could mean having the intestines, stomach, spleen and sometimes liver in the chest. The presence of these abdominal organs in the chest compresses the lungs and prevents them from developing normally.

CDH is most often diagnosed before birth, around the 20-week ultrasound visit. There is a spectrum of severity in CDH patients, and the health risks and treatment often depend on the level of severity

The team treats each CDH patient differently and doesn't have a "one size fits all" protocol. Treatment includes:

* Planned birth at Bayfront Baby Place, located on the third flood of Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital with easy, quick access to the neonatal intensive care unit
* Resuscitation and careful ventilation upon birth
* Variable timing of CDH repair (from six hours to six days of life) based on a scientific evaluation of each baby's CDH severity, optimizing the benefits of repair, while minimizing the risks of surgery
* "Gentle" pressure-limited ventilation that eliminates pressure-induced lung injury and strict protection of the underdeveloped lungs
* Utilization of ECMO when needed. Duration of ECMO is not pre-determined and may last a few days to a few weeks
* Extremely high continuity of care during the course of hospitalization
* No routine paralysis, thus giving babies a chance to act as normal as possible in an abnormal environment
* Slow and deliberate recovery
* Discharge in one to three months

Preferred experience in congenital diaphragmatic hernias, ECMO, Neonatal, and ICU.

The RN II is responsible for:

* Providing patient centered, specialized nursing care across the continuum through an interprofessional approach to treatment, research, education, and advocacy.
* Coordinating care for assigned patients on a shift to promote the achievement of clinical outcomes.
* Providing direction to other team members to promote quality, safety, and excellence in care.
* Providing evidence-based patient care based on the nursing process policy, procedures, and protocols of the Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital.
* Working collaboratively with a multidisciplinary health care team to optimize patient care outcomes.
* Participating and promoting quality clinical improvement by supporting departmental and hospital safety standards.
* Practicing and promoting responsible cost-effective use of resources.
* Completing all identified annual requirements and competencies for patient population, unit, department, and institution.
* Participating in the performance appraisal process.
* Consistently demonstrating organization's core values.


* Baccalaureate degree, in nursing from an accredited School of Nursing, preferred. Applicants with an Associate Degree in nursing will be considered and must obtain BSN within 36 months of hire
* Registered Nurse (RN) Required. Florida State or Compact License required
* A minimum of one year of experience as a licensed Registered Nurse
* BLS certification provided by AHA, other certifications as required by home department. All credentials must be maintained with active status. .
