I generally start my coding day at 5am. I start working Inpatient and then move on into the other queue's. I work well with the other 12 coders. I have been a coder for 3 years, if I need a second set of eyes to review my codes, I do ask the senior coders to review and accept their comments. Work is assigned by alpha letters, which works well for most of the queue's. Hardest part of my job is not having orders scanned in and having to email or call to find orders. It takes time out of my coding hours when I have to search for documents. Most enjoyable part is every chart is different. I like opening a chart and being able to read through documents and code to the best of my ability. I also enjoy being able to work different types of queue's and working remotely.
