Pros: cafeteria on site
Cons: patients screaming at you because the doctor isn't ready for them
I currently work nights and often see true emergencies come through the hospital. My day varies from very busy with multiple people in the ER seeking assistance to a handful of patients coming in with stomach aches.
I have learned insurance laws, and coordination of benefits as it relates to who pays claims for the patients. I work with a great group of people, everyone can not work nights, yet my co-workers all want to work.
The hardest part of the job is when a small child comes in to the ER hurt and I can't personally make it better for them. The most enjoyable part is interacting with the older patients, enjoying when they share their knowledge on whatever crosses their minds.
