The hardest part of the job was that on occassion one was faced with cases that were not familiar, and co-workers were not always readily available to consult with. This forced one to apply all the knowledge one had in decision making. The most enjoyable part was the variety on the job and the social interaction with the patients and staff.
Nursing Unit Clerk (Current Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 10 August 2017
A typical day at work includes, Booking appointments for patients, Transcribing doctors orders, Answering multi line telephone calls, filing, ordering lab work and medical imaging request. Admitting and discharging patients. Booking out patient procedures. Faxing and copying information. I have Learned lots of medical terminology from working in various places around the hospital. Pharmacology terminology as well. I have learned to work in a team or as a independent worker. My management team is great, always there to support you when needed. The hardest part of the job would be when you get close with a patient and they pass away. Also not bringing home the stress you carry at work. The most enjoyable part is being able to help people in anyway I can. Also seeing staff members you become close with through out the work day.
