We are going through some big changes at work this month. Updating form a physical chart to electronic medical records. I am swamped. We went through this a in March for the front office. I was very helpful. Everyday! Well, I'm annoyed. The back office is trying to get our stuff organized and guess what? They don't really care. They really aren't interested in helping or learning anything about this. It has put me in a mood. A mood of not wanting to go to work. Have you ever dealt with a nurse who doesn't want to be at work? We tend to wear our heart on our sleeve and no matter what we do it shoes. I am working through lunches and will be working overtime this week to try and get ahead before we go live - up on full electronic medical records- by July 26th. This may seem like a little freak out for no reason but some of my charts are 4 inches thick and patients take 20 different medicines that all have to be manually entered. Not to mention answer my call during the day. Yesterday, I had 37 calls in just one day. I tell you this will be a true test of my will power. If I make it through this without eating my way through it will be an amazing feat! Wish me luck! ;)
And, remember to be nice to the people at your doctor's office.
