Telecommunication Operator (Current Employee) – Biddeford, ME – October 28, 2013
I really enjoy this job because every day is a little different. It always has a new challenge. It can be very stressful at times especially when there is an emergency or a code in progress. There is such a variety of responsibilities. Our job consists of being on the phones a great part of the day since we are the main line for the hospital. We deal a great deal with the all the physicians for SMMC from paging doctors for all the floors to keeping track of the physicians schedules for the hospital. We also keep current lists of inpatients throughout the day. I have to say that we have a great group in our department and we all try to work together.
