Working at University Hospital
Secretary/Office Assistant (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 3, 2018
I left University Hospital almost 20 years ago, so many things may have changed. I worked in a hospital waiting room, behind a desk. So there was a constant stream of patients coming in for same day surgery as well as their families and the Epilepsy and Sleep lab patients coming to see the three neurology doctors from my department. I typed transcriptions, answered phones, made appointments, worked payroll, etc,. during the work day. My colleagues were all dedicated workers and I made some good and lasting friends at University.
The most difficult thing was working with so many distractions, lots of people in the waiting room, the TV on, phones ringing, doctors, nurses and techs coming in and out of a very small area. However, the level of distractions did give me the opportunity to learn to focus to get the job done.
My immediate managers were the LSU doctors. I had no problems working for them.
