Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – November 20, 2016
It is enjoyable to work at Somerville Hospital, which is one of the hospitals from Cambridge Health alliance. As a unit secretary, a typical day would look as follows: I almost always try to get there on time, which is 3:00 pm. I would start working right after I punch in. I interact with patients, doctors, nurses, managers, co-workers, and more. We all treat one another with respect, courtesy, and compassion. In the emergency department at Somerville Hospital, we give excellent care to our patients and we are proud of it. I have learned about patient confidentiality, which is the most important regulation for me. I have also learned computer skills such as, Epic and Meditech. In the emergency room, the staff and I work as a team and that makes the job easier. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping our patients in any way we can. For instance, a patient comes in with pain and cannot even walk. After awhile, that same patient is pain free and looks like a new person. That is the most enjoyable time for us at the Somerville Emergency Department.
