Typical day at The Bridge is answering phones filling, updating clients charts, inputting new information for clients files, ordering supplies for two programs, checking the progress of co-workers paperwork, prepare for end of month billing, check cts. medicaid for activity, possibly call emergency personal for upset clients. I learned just how much I could endure from strangers and what should and should not be taken personally, and patience.
I worked with some of the most dedicated social workers who not only enjoyed their jobs but were also compasionate towards their clients and coworkers. We all became very good friends as well as coworkers. The hardest part of the job is having to call paramedics and police officers on clients who were unruly and not taking their medications. The most enjoyable part of the job was my coworkers and most of the clients were really good people.
