Pros: free flu shots, employee appreciation benefits, proactive health opportunities, free education classes.
Cons: no breaks, short lunches when doctors were seeing patients or working on deadline projects.
Great support from doctors/clinicians that I worked for. Good sense of humor and a great sense of trust in my ability. Typical day, review schedule for outpatient following inpatient rounds. I paged the doctor and adivsed him about the outpatient day. Opened all mail and answered whatever correspondence I could. Priority was to transcribe anything left – more... for me. I would make the bank deposit after opening all the mail. Kept all credentialing with the hospitals and insurances up to date. Worked with my doctor directly when clinic began after his rounds. Handled any unusual medication/pharmacy problems including prescription insurance overrides. I have a good understanding of psychiatric medications and medical rationale for use of newer psychotropic medications. Composed for Doctor's review any disability/impairment patient paperwork from chart notes. Worked closely with Medical Staff Services at Parkview as liaison for doctors. Enjoyed all my coworkers - good comradery!
After leaving my work shift went home and transcribed nursing home psychiatric evaluations and progress notes for Dr. working out in the community at local nusing homes. – less
