Float nurse, Yukon, OK - October 3, 2017
Float nurse (medical assistant) for six Doctors, one Physician's Assistant, and one Nurse Practitioner. Responsible for taking vitals and chief complaint. Proficient in outpatient surgical procedures, injections for adults and children, ear lavage, orthostatic blood pressure, Biote Pellet therapy explanation and assistance in procedures, testosterone injections and levels, strep and flu testing, GYN procedures, EKG's, stitch and staple removal, prior authorizations, sample inventories, Convenient Care and prescription call-ins. Our EMR was Citrix and Epic. I was cross-trained to answer phones and make appointments. There is ample training for coworkers. It's a relaxed culture and easy to form bonds. The hardest part of the job was that new management had no empathy and crossed many lines among coworkers. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the patients and making them my first priority. You really grow close to the patients.
