Certified Coding Associate (Former Employee) – Porterville, CA – June 26, 2015
I am blessed to have worked for such a great organization, with excellent managers. I first started out as a file clerk in the medical records department, and quickly advanced to an Outpatient Medical Coder. I was responsible for coding radiology and interventional radiology procedures. I had a quota to meet of 300 accounts a day and always met it. I worked closely with the physicians on a daily basis getting all completed documentation completed and signed to complete the medical record guidelines. I worked closely with the patient accounting on a daily basis getting them the proper information the needed to bill the claim. I ran monthly reports and had to explain why unpaid claims werent paid, and what I needed to get them finalized. I has the chance to advance to an inpatient coder, and was coding in paitent charts, working towards a Certified Coding Specialist certification, I learned all HIPPA guidelines, and became a HIPPA officer, and would educate new hires, on the importance of patient confidentiality. I learned so much working here, and was given the chance to advance, in my career.
Environment was good until they hired department director that was incompetent
RN INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY (Former Employee) – Porterville, CA – May 3, 2015
I worked with multiple doctors and interventional radiologists when I first started but after 1 1/2 years they contracted with 1 interventional radiologist who was very good. Learning with him was easy and he was very competent. The other staff who were rad techs were good to work with and helped make a good team during procedures. The hardest part of the job was trying to make the newest director understand how things worked at the time and that the employees that she hired were not very productive. I left this position to pursue other areas of nursing outside of the hospital. During the time I worked in the or I really enjoyed this job although the overtime and on call hours were more than I wanted. The last or director I worked under was not productive in her endeavors and did not listen to the staff in the or setting.
Ability to work with others in different field and other departments in a hospital setting
Need back up of persons you work with and work for in this position

Student Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Porterville, CA – June 30, 2014
A typical day of work would consist of receiving report of assigned patients, collaborating with nurses and physicians regarding the plan of care, providing care to the patients, utilizing the nursing process, and maintaining patient safety throughout shift. I learned clinical skills such as insertion of foley catheters, NG tubes, and IV's. Also initiated IV therapy as well as medication administration. Was supervised by the RN instructor and received high marks on evaluation of skills and performance. Co-workers were friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job was communicating with physicians, but overcame that by reminding myself that we were all part of the health and well-being of the patient. The most enjoyable part of the job was building a therapeutic relationship with my patients and being able to provide the care they needed and deserved.
Great learning experience, always something new to learn, friendly staff
