The primary role of a medical scribe is to assist the ED physician with the complete documentation of patients' charts. Scribes accompany ED physicians seeing patients in order to record each patient's history, review of systems, and the physical examination performed by the physician. Scribes keep track of laboratory tests, medications, and radiology tests ordered by the physician, and transcribe the results into the chart once they are completed. Scribes document all procedures done by the physician. Procedures may include performing life support, reducing dislocations, suturing, etc. Scribes document any consultations the ED physician makes to a patient's personal doctor, family members, or on-call physician. Scribes are responsible for documenting all diagnoses, treatment plans, prescriptions, and discharge/follow-up information for each patient. The shifts always vary, but generally are between 8-10 hours.
ScribeAmerica is looking for experience-driven candidates who are pursuing careers in the medical field to join our team in Bloomington, IN. Our scribes work in the emergency department at IU Health Bloomington. We are offering both full time and part time positions.
As a scribe you will:
· Accompany the healthcare provider into patient examination rooms in order to transcribe the patient’s history, physical exam findings, consultations, labs, X-rays, and other evaluations, as stated by the provider, directly into the medical record
· Maintain a comprehensive list of active patients to help the provider remain organized
· Prepare plans for follow-up care, as directed by the provider
· Process admittal and discharge paperwork
This is NOT an internship or a volunteer opportunity. Scribing allows you to shadow healthcare providers and get paid doing it, while gaining rare clinical experiences that help you grow as a person and as a professional.
