Medical Records Clerk (Current Employee) – Niantic, CT – July 28, 2015
Working for Correctional Managed Healthcare is challenging and eye opening. My typical day would be coming to work having my bags checked, waiting for the Correctional Officer to allow me to proceed to my building for work, usually takes about 10 minutes. As you walk to your building you come into contact with many inmates and Correctional Officers; when I reach my building I must swipe my time card then go into a lock box to check out my keys for the day. Its time consuming so you must be very punctual. After this I go to the Medical Records Room, a 13X20 ft. room made completely of cylinder blocks, no windows, no reception for anything! I begin to pull the charts needed for the day (about 250) along with random charts that need to be reviewed, then I proceed to my own tasks for the day such as: processing releases of information, filing, making sure chart orders are processed, filing back the charts from the day, answering phones, placing orders, chart maintenance, composing emails, and anything else needed of me.
There is a lot to do so your day goes by fast, also the autonomy to complete your daily tasks.
The environment at a Correctional Facility can be very stressful.
