We currently have an exciting opportunity available for a Medical Scribe III (Lead Scribe).
Medical scribes include college students interested in medicine who are responsible and mature individuals. These individuals possess integrity, intellect, initiative and the ability to work cooperatively with a wide range of personalities in stressful situations. The scribes work to facilitate patient flow through the department by assisting the physicians with documentation and gathering of information for presentation to the physician. The information collected may be a transcription of the information gathered by the physician or data on past medical and surgical history, medications and allergies, family history of disease, social history (tobacco, alcohol and drug use), and a review of systems (ROS). Additionally, the scribes will track outstanding orders on each patient and present the physician with data as they are returned from x-ray or lab. The scribes will accompany the physician during the patient interview and physical exam. As the physician presents an oral summary of the information obtained from the patient, the scribe transcribes the summary onto paper in a concise, accurate and legible manner. They are to follow the supervising physician’s direction and to work to implement the medical plan.
