Be a Puppet for Management with no Medical Background
Medical Provider (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – July 5, 2018
Management of a "medical facility" with no medical background so the first thing that you can expect is that your medical license will be at risk routinely and nobody cares. You will be working with people that have very little medical knowledge because beginners are the cheapest way to go. The clinics are not stocked or equipped to function other than as the last person did it. Because you are not working for medical people there are few systems in place. They will do it however you like it but you will have to teach them first. So you may ask if I have beginner helpers, no systems set up, and no medical knowledge at the top, what am I left with?? They will pretend you are going to make decent money with their bonus system, and pretend that you will be getting good benefits, and pretend that you will love your work. There is very little PTO. You are not paid for holidays unless you work them at you basic rate. They "do not pay for charting" which means you get to do it from home when you are off the clock. "Our EMR is so great it only takes two minutes per patient", and if it sounds too good to be true it is. Just try to locate the correct diagnosis on that EMR! That may take you 30 minutes alone!! How about electronic prescriptions? You will be cussing you brains out for the most simple rx. They go through providers like little paper med cups, quite disposable!!
Risking your license and sanity on a regular basis.
