Pros: multi-tasking, flexibility, patient interactions, problem solving
Cons: saying no, not always being able to give th patient/clinic/md what they were requesting
The Nebraska Medical Center is a world-renowned hospital. To work there is to be in the presence of true perfection.
My typical work day included entering CPT and ICD-9 charges for an extremely busy cardiovascular lab, scheduling tests for both our university (teaching) building, and our private-based building. I also backed up our vascular transcription department, and even found time to assist a lost patient or two.
My co-workers were out of this world. Intelligent, friendly, and so unbelievably patient-focused, we were able to flex and bend with any emergency or change of events. My co-workers were the true definition of "patient oriented" and left me speechless on a daily basis.
Honestly, the hardest part of this job was clocking out and leaving for the day. To be a part of this team, and a part of this hospital was an honor every single day.
