Had the opportunity to work in several different areas within the Admissions department
Pros: helping people
Cons: sometimes i had to work double shifts
I registered all hospital outpatients and registered emergency room patients as quickly as possible. I learned when you offer the hospital's discount I was able to collect co-pays and deductibles. My co-workers and I would often switch shifts so I learned as many aspects with-in the department as possible. I think the hardest part was being the PBX operator who answered a multi-line phone system included separate phones for doctors, ambulance service, and the code phone for when a patient codes. I did enjoy working with same day surgery to process paperwork for patients to have surgery. I enjoyed working in central scheduling making appointments for MRI, Ultrasounds, Cat Scans, Nuclear Medicine, and basic X-rays.
