MY TYPICAL DAY...
Hit the ground running, we start the day at 8am, and when i get here there are already patients waiting to be roomed, in between the rooming of the patients i will check my task list with any triage calls
and try to call these patients in between, also do the refill line, and the constant stocking of the rooms and the immunization room, we also have nurse visits, that have to be done, b12, depo, missed
immunizations, ppd plants. Also during the day I look ahead and
print all the labs for the patients coming and or call them to remind them to please get there labs done. During the day i get numerous calls from my established patients with many questions, and also the calls from the vna. We are also responsible for sending out all the lab letter to the patient with normal labs and further work up needed.The hardest part of my job is just trying to get it all done and to keep everyone happy and safe. The most enjoyable part of my job is the patients and helping them, I get alot of joy from that, i love that they call me and ask for me by name, I feel like that i really make a difference here.
