The ED at ECMC is a very busy place. My job requires me to be fast paced and efficient with attention to detail and well rounded because we see every type of patient. Like most successful businesses, it also requires the entire staff to work together in order to complete the task of getting the patient(s) the treatment they need, in a timely fashion and ensuring that their privacy is upheld, as well as ensuring that the hospital can get paid for the treatment, which in turn ensures that all of the providers and staff receive compensation for their hard work. The hardest part of my job is when everyone needs to be in the room at the same time, it is a very small room and many people make it difficult to move around, but you find ways to make it work. The most enjoyable part of the job is satisfaction of knowing I've done a good job.
