Pros: great coworkers
While I worked at Allied Barton I had 2 jobs titles which were dispatcher and patient watch officer. I was usually in dispatch, however; I assisted in patient watch when necessary. While dispatching I would answer 911 related phone calls, input service orders for all areas of the hospital, deal with all security issues, and keep in close communication with Denver and Aurora police/fire department. I learned that patience and keeping calm is key to any stressful environment. Management was a key aspect for dispatch to run smoothly, the management did an excellent job at communicating issues and also praising employees. My coworkers at Allied Barton were my favorite part of the job. I trusted them completely and could rely on them to not only come to work but also help out if needed. The hardest part of my job was the stress level that accompanied it, dealing with life threatening situations on a daily basis can be hard. Also, to be a dispatcher multi-tasking is a huge factor to obtain success.
