Pros: meeting new people, healthy lunches, coworkers
Cons: short break, unorganized
Daily life in the ER is quite hectic. I clock into work at 9am, we have a new set up in the ER for registration. We are all assigned certain rooms. Mine are 18-24 and 36-40. Yeah, its only 12 rooms, but they tend to fill up fast. Not only are we assigned certain rooms, but we also get the EMS pager 5 hours out of our work shift. With the pager comes the responsibility of checking in any ambulance or med flight getting them an armband, and getting the doctors and nurses stickers so they can chart on the patient. If we end up not having a lot of patients, we are suppose to work on the workqueues. Workqueues are where certain accounts go that insurance are filed wrong and we fix them. You do this all day for seven days straight, but then we also get seven days off.
