Pros: i live 5 blocks from the hospital
Cons: currently going through a takover by a new company.
I have loved working at St. Mary's for the past 4 yrs. I was the ED Case Manager for 3yrs. and had a wonderful relationship with Physicians and nurses. I am trusted and respected by all. I became the surgical case manager one year ago and loved this job as well, working with a great team. I am currently going to critical care to do case management and will be working closely with the hospitalists once again. I have learned much about appropriate admission status, Medicare and Medicaid rules and regulation, DRGs, CPT Codes, denials, and even more about chart review. I have always had excellent communication and teaching skillls but this job has aloud me to expand this area of my expertise. I enjoy my job but do not feel that I am moving forward. I see no opportunity for growth toward a leadership role at this time and am currently working on my Masters in nursing leadership. I have had three managers since I have been in case management with only one having experience in case management. This is probably the most difficult part of my job because my co-workers and myself are knowledgeable in our positions. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I do possess the knowledge to do my job and my co-workers trust me.
