Position Description Iowa Medical and Classification Center (IMCC) is located on Hwy 965 in Coralville, IA just north of I-80. All male offenders sentenced in the state of Iowa come to IMCC first. They remain in “reception status” while they are assessed and classified. During this classification process, it is determined to which of the nine Iowa prisons they will transfer in order to carry out their sentence. Patients from the other institutions are transferred to IMCC in order to be transported to and from the UIHC. Depending on the reason for their visit to the UIHC, these patients may be housed at IMCC for a length of time in order to recuperate and/or receive additional care before returning to their institution. Pregnant patients from the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women (ICIW) may also be housed at IMCC if they have 1) high-risk pregnancies or are 2) in their third trimester. These women are housed in a separate area in the Lowell Brandt Unit (LBU). There are also times when the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital (FPH) will house a female patient. The Nurse Practitioner (NP) needed at IMCC would work with both the LBU and FPH patients. Primary NP responsibilities would be: ? Conducting physical examinations ? Collecting historical health, developmental and psychosocial data ? Interpreting, performing or assisting in routine laboratory and related studies (drawing blood samples, urine analysis, etc.) ? Recommend patient care resources (UIHC specialty departments, etc.) ? Work with Physicians to aid in determining diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
