Surgery Unit Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Hammond, LA – January 14, 2015
Pros: great co-workers
While at North Oaks, I learned all about a Hospital works, I dealt with patients, and patients families. The hardest part of my job was when you had a CODE, a Dr. on the phone, The patient line is ringing, and you need to order a test ASAP. My management and co-workers did an amazing job tutoring me. They were all there every step of the was if I needed them. The best advice I received was from a co-worker who told me to not over think what the Doctor may be ordering. Just type what they had requested. You learned the all hip patients automatically received a sign stating fall risk.
Managed Care Coordinator (Current Employee), Hammond, LA – December 23, 2013
Pros: close access to health providers and services
Cons: long commute
A typical day in my current role as Managed Care Coordinator is never the same. Depending on the time of the month it could range from completing month end journal entries and financial reporting to negotiating and completing a language review in a pending contract with one of many managed care companies. I work along side the Director of Revenue Management, Licensing/Credentialing Coordinator and the Managed Charge Auditor. The hardest part of my job is managing the stressful time crunch to complete and close out financials by the 5th day of each month due to the extensive amount of information required to review and correct for accuracy. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I do the best I can each day and the fulfillment it gives me to know the valuable role that I play in extremely important financial decisions for a very large and expansive health system.
