Have you Ever Wondered What a Medical Assistant Does on a Daily Basis?
As our readers know, the life of a Medical Assistant (MA) is full of many different tasks which vary depending on the type of medical practice. Let’s take a look at how a Medical Assistant may spend his or her day!
An MA typically begins their exciting day by logging into the Electronic Medical Record System (EMR) to review the patients for the day. This gives them a head start on preparing for what the doctor may need for the day. Excitement mounts as the patients arrive and the MA rooms the patients, takes vital signs, and begins taking the ‘history’ of why the patient has made the appointment.
What happens next? This is where the fantastic mystery of medicine begins! Does the patient need blood drawn? An electrocardiogram? Suture removal? The important history the MA took will allow the doctor and team to review and determine the next step in patient care.
As the busy day comes to end, the MA ensures the rooms are cleaned and returns any phones messages from patients. The MA is crucial to a successful medical office!
