Medical Transcriptionist/Liaison (Current Employee) – Brunswick, ME – March 14, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of transcribing acute care reports, i.e. History & Physical, Discharge summary, consultations, procedure reports, behavioral health, etc.
I learned a lot in my 18 years with Mid Coast. I became a skilled transcriptionist in many different specialities. I was given some responsibility, i.e. when Supervisor was away I was put in charge. I also had opportunity to train new employees. Management was good most of the time. In my 18 years at Mid Coast we went through five Directors and one of my coworkers became my supervisor. Our current Director is a good manager.
I didn't find anything particularly hard about my job and sometimes found it was not challenging enough. I was given more responsibility as the years went by and my supervisor felt comfortable leaving me in charge in her absence.
I got along very well with my co-workers and I am still in touch with those who have retired or left for other reasons.
The hardest part of the job was that it could be boring at times and I needed more of a challenge.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working as a team and producing quality work.
comfortable work environment, good benefits.
hard to get vacation time, would have to compete with everyone for time off, had to find own coverage for time off.

A typical day at work always were with smiles and kindness I always learned something new each day. Management was always there for me if needed. Co workers were always helpful and fun. The hardest part of the job was selecting what desert to have when someone had a celebrating Birthday. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the patients and seeing their smiles on their faces.
