Externship (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – October 8, 2013
Pros: applying the skills taught to me in school, management, and my co-workers.
Cons: i loved everything about my experience here.
A typical day at the Infusion Center would start off by faxing the notes from the day before over to the patients physician. I would room patients and take their vital signs as they walked in. When all the faxing and rooming patients were done I would make reminder phone calls to patients coming in the next day. When medications were delivered I would – more... verify that everything was in the box then have the office manager sign off on them then I would store them in the proper places. I was also allowed to give injections for osteoporosis which was awesome. When there weren't any patients to room and nothing else to do I would go to the filing wall and organize them in alphabetical order. I was also called upon to pull files for the other medical assistant so they can schedule the following appointments for the next day, or maybe even the week. Aside from what I learned from my education as a medical assistant from school, I had face to face contact with real patients. Management was really good. They were there every time I had questions and really made me feel as part of their team. My co-workers were really down to earth, as was everybody else that worked there. It really felt as though they were my family away from family. The hardest part of the job was monitoring patients vital signs when I had to be two places at once to silence the monitor and take vital signs. The most enjoyable part of the job was giving injections. The free lunches was sale representatives was pretty cool too. – less
