The Nursing staff are wonderful, especially the Psyche, Cardiology, and CCU/ICU nurses.
Pros: using my nursing skills related to the health industry, being a liaison between the hospital staff and the i t, networking with my colleagues, and building friendships on a daily basis
Cons: it is only a temporary position
In a typical day I visit practically every department and nursing area in the hospital, checking the speed of the EMR system and trouble-shooting/problem-solving along the way. I use the nursing process constantly in prioritizing, trouble-shooting and solving problems.
Since I never know what awaits me until I arrive on the scene, the hardest parts – more... of my job are the unforeseen glitches in the system which have to be rewritten by a programmer, or having to get a ticket written up for a bug in the system too big to go around.
It makes my job so much easier when working with the staff, doctors and nurses at BMC because the majority are eager to learn the system and apply it to the patient care immediately.
I basically help them to tweak their knowledge and knock out any areas where they may get stuck. I like working with this staff, they make me feel needed. – less
