    Excellent place to work

    Jul 21, 2015 - Clinical Information Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay is the best in the scribing industry. Every department in the company is so helpful and they will point you in the right direction. If you have any issues at your hospital site, you have a lead CIM to help you directly. You are working alongside practitioners, most of whom are EMA PAs and MDs, who understand that you may be taking coursework for college. I personally thought the 12.5 hour work day was the best because I could work 3 nights (I was an overnight employee) and fulfill my full-time obligation. The interview process was simple, as was the 2 week training period that followed after being accepted into the company. The experience working as an EMA CIM looks phenomenal on any resume.

    Cons

    Summer months tend to be the busiest for everyone in the hospital, including the CIM. Sometimes a lone CIM will need to work 2 or even 3 zones in the ED at the same time due to staffing issues that arise during the summer. This results in burnout very quickly into the shift and, as those types of shifts rack up, into the job.

    Scribe (CIM) position

    Jul 13, 2012 - Clinical Information Manager in Lumberton, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good learning experience especially if you are a student. You get exposure to all types of emergencies and learn more about the treatments and diagnoses associated with various signs/symptoms. You get great experience using medical terminology correctly and you'll be awesome at charting and being thorough if you decide to pursue other medical careers. Also, you get to watch procedures, examinations, and other interesting things.

    Cons

    It can be stressful at times, and there are definitely shifts where I only have time to take a 5-10 minute break for the entire 12 hours. You can't plan on getting off on time, either. It can also be difficult sometimes switching between and memorizing the way each specific doctor likes their charting to be done. Lastly, you'll learn that there are a few doctors out of the many you will be charting for that can be difficult to work with - some of them can be rude to the staff at times and create chaos when things get busy.
