The hardest part of my job is copy typing since I've been a trancriptionist for years. A typical day at work is typing cardiac studies using a template such as echocardiograms, carotid dopplers, venous and arterial upper and lower extremity dopplers, surgical clearances, consults. I love a challenge so I keep up as best I can between phone calls, looking up reports on hospital remote access site (two hospitals). Management lacks due to "clique mentality" with certain people.
The enjoyable part of my job is helping people that need something "now" and it makes them so happy because most of the time "now" doesn't exist at a doctor's office!!
I've learned that I can do only one thing at a time no matter how hard I try and the plus part is making new friends. We have fun at our Christmas parties and have little down time. We're pretty much family as we spend a LOT of time together. I've learned teamwork is a valuable tool!!
