It's been a great place for me and I have advanced as much as I could with my current qualifications.
Pros: flexible schedule. salaried.
Cons: some days are very long.
A typical day working as a Case Manager on the Orthopedic Unit is very busy reviewing patients problem list, assessing their need for Home Health Care vs Rehab Center and making the necessary arrangements. Acting as a liaison between patients, families, staff, service providers and assessing if a Social Worker is needed.
I learned that lot's of communication is key.
Management is sensitive to you needs and request within their limits, they attempt to provide a place where you would want to work and work closely with you.
Constant interaction in an open area can be very distracting.
The people, patients, co-workers, doctors, product representatives.
