Pros: high patient volumes- kept busy.
Cons: no set role responsibility, unit not previously managed
Managed the daily flow of the Outpatient BMT Treatment Center. Ensured appropriate staffing
Addressed concerns from patients, nurses, physician, and support staff
Individual Counseling as needed
I worked with 2 other assistant managers, one responsible for the BMT clinic, and the other responsible for the support staff.
The hardest – more... part of this position was taking on a staff that was not used to having anyone in my position. I also came into the role with only having inpatient experience. The atmosphere is quite different and constantly changing. I went from a role where I was comfortable and knew a lot of resources for staff, to starting over and being on the other end of the spectrum.
I enjoyed the challenge. – less
