Pros: discounted food in the cafeteria for being an employee
Cons: insurance benefits
I worked registration in ER, Radiology, Front Admitting and Lab which includes:
~Registering patients for-ER admitting
~Registering patients for-Radiology, such as CT scans, MRI's, PET scans for (cancer patients) and all X-rays
~Registering patients for-Front Admitting including Cardiology tests, EKG's & Cath Labs & Dr's would call me for direct admits on patients and I would take them up to their room have them sign the papers and give them their copies
~Registering patients for-Lab includes: Any type of blood work ordered from the patients Dr's, urine & drug testing for potential employers.
When registering all of these patients I get their insurance cards, photo ID's and I scan them in the system. I also verified all their information in the system to make sure nothing had changed. I would then print out papers for them to sign and scan those papers as well under their account and give them copies of what they had signed.
Management had changed and they let a lot of us go for unknown reasons and let us file for unemployment.
I got along with all of my co-workers, we just enjoyed working together as a team. If there was a co-worker who had a problem with me I basically continued to be nice and it eventually just stopped on their end.
The hardest part of the job was working in a fast paced environment but I was mature about it and did what I needed to stay up to speed with it.
I enjoyed just about everything, I had always wanted to work in a hospital and my boss at that time was amazing to me. I would have to say seeing the smiles on the patients faces and knowing that I made a difference with my positive attitude was the most rewarding.
