Administrative Assistant, Leesburg, Virginia - December 21, 2014
A typical day would include checking emails and phone messages, completing reports in timely fashion, answering phone calls, assist the Facility Administrator with what is asked, complete chart audits and filing, trouble shoot patient issues, arrange patient travel arrangements, complete payroll and correct time clock issues, responsible for patient intake, enter and update new/existing patient information, take inventory, place inventory orders, receive inventory and ensure organized stock room, clean artificial kidneys in a sterile environment, properly document and complete logs sheets in Reuse Room. My Facility Administrator was wonderful to work with. She had 3 clinics to run, which prohibited her from being present at my location on a daily basis. With that, I was able to oversea entire clinic with the ability to troubleshoot. While I enjoy multi-tasking, I found that going from office work to clinical work on a daily basis was the hardest part of the job. There were many enjoyable aspects of the job, which include: Positive team moral/team building, continuous education, fun and laughter with staff and patients, maintaining rapport with patients, families, physicians and hospital employees, staying busy, having multiple responsibilities, great team work throughout the region, and fun activities throughout the year. I helped open two brand new facilities and enjoyed the knowledge learned, as well as the hard work that is needed to open a dialysis facility. I enjoyed learning all aspects of the company. The more you know, the better you are at your job.
