Hospital Admitting Clerks Day
You’ve probably been to a hospital before and know the Hospital Admitting clerk is the first person you will encounter. The daily life of an admission clerk is often not appreciated by the people who come in. They are often sick and in pain and not at their best. They take care of all the ailments you bring in, cranky children, and the attitude you have when you are in pain. Hospital Admitting Clerks Day was dedicated to them.
They listen to you, call your insurances, explain to customers who don’t want it, exactly how much their health care will cost. They answer your calls, comfort you and your family, and do their best to alleviate the stress that comes with working in a large hospital. They are rarely remembered, but it is always the Doctors’ name or the nurses that we remember. Not the one-man band at the front desk who admits us and sends us to triage. They are our first contact when we need care.
It’s a great way to celebrate the day by going into work and thanking your workers. They are involved in every step of your journey to getting the medical care you need. Given all the people they interact with every day, wouldn’t it be time to give back a little?
You can make it extra special by bringing flowers and a card to wish them a Happy “Hospital Admitting Clerk Day”. Print out plaques and flyers for your favourite clerks. Or, you could simply go to the facility where you do business and express gratitude for their services. This isn’t a very common gesture, especially if they have not performed any recent service.
These clerks are responsible for answering your calls and monitoring the hospital’s control centers to ensure that there is no emergency. They also protect your HIPAA information. This includes all the information about your medical records, insurance, and any other information that you give your doctor every time you visit.
If you have ever been to the hospital or know someone who does, it might be time to thank them for their wonderful work. They are truly the backbone of every officer. They manage all administrative tasks, ensure that doctors know when appointments are scheduled, and keep everything running smoothly throughout the day. They are responsible for maintaining the machines and making and receiving faxes. They are responsible for ensuring that every aspect of the hospital infrastructure runs smoothly.
It is a great idea to reach out to your local medical facilities to ask them about arranging a thank-you party for the Medical Admitting clerks. It is possible to reach out to local merchants like Starbucks and restaurants and even gift shops and ask them to promote this holiday and the wonderful work these people do. It’s time for you to show your appreciation on Medical Admitting Clerks Day!
