I started at Faulkner in the x-ray file room, it wasn't the best job but I enjoyed it. Within 2 years I was promoted to work at the reception desk, doing paperwork and taking care of patients. It was a great job and although I felt the tasks just common sense the experience was pricelss, My boss ran multiple department at Faulkner Hospital and offered me a promotion to because the sole Administrative Assistant for the Physical/Occupational department. I loved working in this department, I was able to make changes and improvement to make things run more smoothly. I also was sent to Meditech for training to learn the software so that we could implement an electronic schedule. This was a great experience, I was able to write my first protocols and make major improvement within the department.

I outgrow my department and there was no place for me to advance within the Hospital.

Phlebotomist & Lab Admin (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 4, 2015
I drew about 10-20 or more patients in an hour. I learned some microbiology and how to plant specimens. I learned how to separate plasma and send specimens off to Mayo Clinic. Management was great! My co-workers were great and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job was transportation only because I did not have a vehicle at the time. The most enjoyable part of the job was flawlessly and harmlessly drawing the in and out patients without hurting them and leaving them satisfied.
Greeter (Former Employee) – Jamaica Plain, MA – November 11, 2014
A day in the ER can be busy one minute and very slow the next. I learned how to deal with stress. Management was okay and I liked most of my coworkers. The hardest part was to deal with patients who were upset with the waiting times. The most enjoyable part was when things would run smooth and no one had long wait times.
Great department to work in with numerous opportunities to work with and support patients and staff.
Temporary secretary in Department of Psychiatry (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 14, 2014
On a typical day in the Outpatient Addiction Recovery program would see me arriving at work by 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. The first hour of every day was spent greeting returning participants in the Dual Diagnosis program and registering and orienting new patients into the program. After that, the majority of my day was spent on the telephone. During these calls, I answered questions from prospective clients and health professionals about all of the outpatient addiction programs; interacted with other hospital departments such as the laboratory, medical records and registration. Additionally, I set appointments for the co-medical directors and all of the counseling staff maintaining their calendars.
Among the things I learned during this experience was how to work with insurance companies to verify coverage and obtain authorizations for care. Additionally, I became very adept at screening this complicated population of patients to determine the level of care they required and setting assessment interviews with the appropriate clinical staff.
The people I worked with are among the most compassionate and supportive individuals I have ever known and I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with them and to count many of them among my best friends.
I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked and become educated in the field of addiction medicine and dually diagnosed patients. I learned to be alert for patient crises and how to deal appropriately with unexpected behavior and events. That may have also been the hardest part of the job - that finemore... line between compassion and empathy.
I look forward to having the opportunity to discuss my skills with you in person and finding out about the position of Scheduling Coordinator.less
Meeting with people and helping them confront their fears and issues
