Pros: tiger ticket giveaways, occasional free lunch
Cons: insurance packages, time off, job advancement, raises
A typical busy or slow day depends on the number amount of discharges from the previous day. I have learned how to reconcile charts in order, ROI, audit, add deficiencies, manage my own office. My manager is very easy going and friendly. I currently do not have co-workers within the HIM department at my facility, but I work with them via e-mail or phone when needed. The hardest part of my job is reminding physicians on a weekly basis to dictate or sign off on deficiencies or delinqunt records. The most enjoyable part of my job is working in an atmosphere without a lot of distraction.
