Productive and a fun learning experience
Student Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – NJ – November 26, 2014
In the morning once I would come in and get settled. I would go up to medical records and get the medical charts for each clinic we had along with the daily dues. If the phones would start ringing I would answer them along with my fellow co workers and answer any question the patients or doctors hand. I took down messages for the nurses or doctors. In the daily dues we would put which charts goes with which team. If a perscribtion needed to be called in or faxed I would do that as well. I helped nurses room patients,and give EKGs when needed. Once patients come in we would check their vitals, write down their medications, and ask them what is the reason for their visit and place them in the waiting room. Once they are discharged we put there charts together, schedule them another appointment. If a patient calls and cancels their appointment over the phone we simply give them a new one. I love everyone at the clinic and it was a great experience even when I had patients who were a loose cannon. I still greeted and helped them with any thing they needed. The job to me is not hard at all its just a job to get use to.
