Fun, energetic, fast paced work environment
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Carmel, IN – July 29, 2017
St. Vincent Medical Group is a faith based medical company that offers many career opportunities. The managers are very supportive and eager to help the employees when needed. The doctors and nurse practitioners are willing to help nurses and medical assistance when needed as well. A typical day starts with reviewing the appointment schedule to become prepared for the day. Preparing for the day includes gathering supplies that may be needed, reviewing vaccinations that will be required for any well child checks, gathering information on the patients and going over the schedule with the doctor. Throughout the day, the routine consists of rooming patients, obtain their vitals and medical history, relaying the reason for the office visit to the doctor, assisting with any treatments, and administering various medications/vaccinations. Triage phone calls, communicating verbal orders to pharmacies and home health agencies, and obtaining prior authorizations from insurance companies are some of the many tasks throughout the work day. I have learned about vaccination requirements from the CDC and how to order from the state funded program. I really enjoy the environment in which I work, my co-workers are great at working together to get the tasks at hand completed. I especially enjoy being able to help the patients succeed in healing or improving their health.
