Assistant head nurse supports the nurse manager and other staff and patients simultaneously. She schedules healthcare activities for various patients in the facility and preparing admission records of patients. She allots the shifts and duties to the nurses and revises the schedule on a weekly basis or if a nurse is not available during the shift. This individual has to streamline the processes of a healthcare facility and ensure that a high standard is maintained in every operation of the nursing department. An assistant head nurse has to recruit new staff and authenticate the documents submitted by them such as registration and experience certificate. She works in close coordination with a doctor or team of doctors and other specialists in the facility and fulfills the manpower and material requirements. It is expected that the assistant head nurse keeps a track on the consumption of medical and surgical supplies and maintains adequate stocks for any emergency arising in the facility.
