Amazing Company Overall, Difficult Pockets
Revenue Integrity Specialist (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – February 19, 2017
There is such a wonderful culture of patient-centered care and a lot of talk about work-life balance and being kind to each other. And that does happen in many of the work areas, but of course it really must depend on the people and the efforts they put forth every day, choosing their actions and words toward patients, families, and co-workers.
I've had amazing days at work where I learned so much, had confidence in my job and really loved what I was doing. Then there was the opposite, where I felt torn down, belittled, worked against, and threatened, all because of attitudes others were projecting.
A typical day begins with our standard charges, and we may pick up projects along the way that require learning on the go.
I started as a floor nurse, and as a Revenue Integrity Specialist, grew into my knowledge base of coding, billing, ICD-9 & 10, CPTs, DRGs, audits, and so many other things! As I said, constant learning, which is now a huge star on my resume. This is due to the strict education of our manager.
For me, management has been just as big of a positive as it has a negative. It's tough love. Just be very aware of your own actions and words, as they can be used against you.
The workplace culture can be nice and it can be difficult. Sometimes it just feels tense. Make sure you are on the same page of understanding with the leadership, or the enjoyable part of the job will quickly become the most difficult part.
