Pros: good pay, great people.
Cons: breaks on midnights were pretty much non-existent.
Working Midnights consisted of Handling quite a few Routine Consults for Doctors,which entailed entry into two different formats.So one call required quite a bit of work as timers had to be set for Next Morning Delivery.Other calls where Dr. to Dr. calls for the ER or for Nurses on the Floors.Following Doctors Preferences as to how to be Contacted at – more... certain times of the Day or Night.
Learned quite a bit of Medical Terminology,other than that already knew Procedures for handling calls.
Top Management was Good.Immediate Supervisor not rated to Highly and one of the many reasons, along with Budget Cuts that the Department was Closed.
Co-Workers were a Great Bunch of people from Diverse backgrounds.Actually learned quite a bit from them.
Hardest Part of Job,well there were really no hard parts.Once job was learned things sailed along smoothly.
Enjoyable parts were Co-Workers and the sense that we were all performing a necessary job, that all the Doctors really appreciated.Department only started in April of 2009,til then no such Department existed.Doctors appreciated our attention to detail and the fact that there Call Preferences were being met. – less
