Enjoyable work environment that expressed their appreciation for my work ethics and abilities.
Pros: wound care seminars, awesome boss and co-workers, helping and healing my patients.
Cons: Variation in lunch breaks and the commute.
I work in the wound care department where we treat anything from venous leg ulcers to skin tears. I would call the patients to the exam room, record vitals, retrieve physical and history, current medications, have them sign the consent to treat forms, undress and clean wound(s), take pictures and measurements before the wound care physician comes in. Occasionally, ill assist the physician in minor procedure like suturing a reopened wound from a previous surgery. When the physician is done with debridement ill apply dressing per physician orders then clean the exam to prep for the next patient. I have on the job training and attended wound care seminars for knowledge in my scope of practice. I also have Administrative experience such as pre/ registration, verifying insurance, obtaining referrals and authorizations, scheduling patients appointments, applying charges and credits if needed. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping my patients and having a wonderful team of co-workers.
