Medical Scribe, St. Louis, MO - September 11, 2015
As a scribe, we follow physicians around and help them with their charts. We document the History of Present Illness, Physical Exam, Assessment and Plan. This helps the physicians have a more thorough chart and reduces the amount of time that they have to work on charts after seeing patients. In my time as a scribe thus far, I have learned so much about physical exams, medical terminology, bedside manner, and making sure that the patients understand and have good health literacy. My favorite part about being a scribe is learning something new every single shift as well as seeing smiles on patient's faces when they receive the medical assistance that they need.
