A typical day at work is very very busy the minute your shift starts. RN's, Physicians, techs and patients all vying for your time at once while answering phones and transcribing physician orders. I learned medical terminology and how to multi task quickly. Management was very good, compassionate and understanding of employee issues Co workers were CNA's and other clerical assistants. The hardest part of the job was dealing with very sick or dying patients. It was also the most rewarding part of the job, to show compassion and love to hurting people.

Record Analyst (Current Employee) – Soldotna, AK – September 26, 2013
I have always enjoyed working in the medical record field. Working at Central Peninsula Hospital has been a great experience for me and I have always gotten much satisfaction working there. I get along well with all of my co workers and enjoy going to work because of the teamwork that we all share as well as the friendships that we have developed. One of the hardest part of my job has been the amount of changes that have been happening over the past couple years, and one of the best part of my job is learning to like the challenge of working through those changes with a positive attitude. All of my job is enjoyable. I love variety and this job has definitely given me that.
