Fast pace environment, with many different tasks to do; often all at once. Very professional environment, but good, fun loving, and caring people.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – May 23, 2017
My typical day at work consisted of data entry with the mediteck system to ensure patients got tests and procedures needed for a diagnosis. I would help with codes that saved lives. I observed, and was certified in basic dysrythmia ti observe telemetry monitors, and report any abnormal heart rhythms.
I performed clerical duties, scheduled appointments, admitted, and discharged patients.
I worked independently, as there were no other workers who knew goes to do this particular job, and duties.
I became certified as a preceptor to train new workers within the hospital to do this job.
I had to habe good communication and interpersonal skills to talk with doctors, nurses, other staff, and to handle calls that came in from other sources, such as family members, and other facilities.
Helping to make people's lives better, and most of all, saving lives.
Double shifts, death of a patient.
