Duties include but are not limited to; documenting and organizing medical records,assisting nurses and surgeons in retrieving tools for specific cases, transporting patients, calling the pharmacy for necessary medications and scheduling cases.
I have learned that collaboration and communication among professionals is essential in providing high quality patient care, and keeping a healthy work environment.
Management includes keeping and logging patients' medical records, documenting inventory of supplies, and basically serving as the assistant for the entire operating unit.
The most difficult aspect of this job is working in an extremely fast paced environment and prioritizing duties as they appear.
The most enjoyable part of the job is providing excellent patient care by ultimately proving them with exceptional medical services and a comfortable environment before and after the scheduled surgery.
