Great place to work offering many different clinics and nursing opportunites.
Pros: feeling of contributing to well being of clinic patients and helping them achieve their goals.
Cons: frequent staffing shortages and not enough work space.
typical day included assisting 2 providers with rooming patients, keeping their schedules moving, teaching as requested by MD, scheduling appointments, setting up and assisting provider with Stress Testing, answering phones, prepping for upcoming clinic days, rooming patients to include taking and recording vitals signs, reviewing medications and pending changes in the EMR to the provider, communitcating with patients via phone, secure messaging, and in person.
I learned how to use EMR, manage the providers schedules, manage an Injection Room and do patient teaching.. I learned wound care. I learned how to work with patients and give them the very best service and care I could give.
GHC offers many different types of managers ranging from very hands on to explaining the goals, then letting the staff members execute and develop the processes. GHC managers are very well educated and carefully selected to work within company framework to meet goals.
My co-workers brought many learning experiences to me at this company. Everyone had expertise in at different areas, ie organizational skills, schedule management, telephone case management, interpersonal relationships.
The hardest part of the job was schedule management, ie keeping the providers close to schedule. Working with many different personalities was, at times, challenging.
The joys of the job came from helping patients achieve their goals, whether it be to stay out of the hospital, regain independence, work with them to maintain the lifestyle they wanted. It was also a joy to work with many different personalities each day.
