Rewarding and always busy job, you have to love
Medical Assistant II/ Medical Records Tech II (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – March 6, 2016
The hardest part of the job was losing patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping and getting to know patients personally. A typical day for me was to get the IV saline bags prepared for patients, making sure everything was stocked for nurses to be able to do their job more efficiently. If it was time to order supplies I would do that and/or stock the supplies that came in, keep up with oxygen tanks, blankets and anything else a patient may need to be comfortable through their chemotherapy treatment. As soon as patients arrived and nurses were ready I would greet patients, escort them from lobby or doctor's area, take vital signs on each patient, record it in electronic record, clean chair as patients were done. At the end of day, I would re-stock and clean everything to prepare for the next day.
Coworkers are there for the same reason, to help the patients.
Management and salary are the top reasons for the high rate of turnovers
