Hours, distance of territory, under staffed
- sometimes the patient wouldn’t even be in the facility and I would drive 2 hours one way to find out they weren’t even there. Even when I called with an eta and also dispatch talked to them.
- facilities will order exams late and dispatch would put them in, even though it was just the nurses putting in orders for the day and they didn’t need to be performed that day. Just unnecessary exams
-facilities will order exams for any reason, any time of the day/night even if they are just routine. Facilities will also put in “stat” exams just because they want it done and read, not for illegitimate stat reasons
Update the employee handbook to reflect the current policies and work to develop aids for holding cassettes and propping patients for optimum exams.
The policy increases as your time at the company increases, but its standard. This company will also consider flex time.
