Excellent doctors with high standards.
As a scribe, I had the privilege of working directly alongside physicians where I was responsible for recording patient histories of present illnesses, gathering past medical and family histories, recording radiology and laboratory findings, documenting consults, admitting patients, writing discharge instructions, and assisting during procedures. It was simultaneously my responsibility to maintain patient flow throughout the department.
I learned a great deal of medical information which was not only clinical but legal and political as well. I had excellent co-workers and was managed by a physician in the emergency department. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with patient numbers and the most enjoyable part of the job was the fast paced environment.
