Do you now work up to or more than 40 hours a week? If so, what job is it?
I work as a radiation therapist/radiology tech. Basically, I started as a tech & finished my therapist education whilst a tech so I float 40 hrs a week at the hospital. I am in radiation therapy more than tech but.... I also work pt for Google (home)
Yep... I'm a teacher.
Can't help but realize that after posting THIS poll, SOH has one out asking the exact same question...
High altitude pressurized aluminum tube industry.
That sounds quite interesting!
So cliche, SAHM is always on the clock. I also home school my kids so it is like two full time jobs. For me, working outside the home was often easier. I am content with what I am doing now. I can always go back to work once they are raised.
I'm a delivery driver for Domino's, I put in about 50 hours a week.
I work full-time at being retired.
Owner/operator of a trucking company. I don't even keep track anymore...
Restaurant manager. I'm scheduled 50-55 hours a week, and I usually work more than that.
Field service technician. I repair construction equipment on site in a 100 or so square mile area.
My scheduled week is 45 hours, but I sometimes leave early, get back late, work Saturday, and I'm on call 24/7.
I majored in Microbiology in college.
Not now; I lost my job and declared myself retired. But I used to work well over 40 hours a week, & usually some hours every day of the week, in a research lab.
Health information management
I'm intrigued. Clearly it was something medical, & I've wondered what it was, but I wouldn't have guessed it was information management. And you travel a lot for it, don't you? Could you say a little more about it?
I'm interested as well
Sure. Health info management (HIM) is the field in healthcare that handles all the medical record aspects of the operation. It's split (primarily) into two worlds. The operations side and the coding side. Operations handles the actual record ensuring
that the record is complete and that all documents are legal, signed, and appropriate. It's a huge task in a hospital even with an electronic health record. The other side (my world) is the coding side. Here we review the records and translate those
records into codes that are used for analysis, study, statistics, and (of course) reimbursement. These codes are all regulated by the fed and the rules on how they are to be used are legion and complex. I manage those who productively code records.
I work for a consulting company doing interim management for facilities who either lack a manager or need help getting their team into a productive and quality pattern of work.
That's really interesting; thanks. Does fall in the realm of medical informatics? I'm not sure how wide that field is, but I have known some people involved in other aspects of it.
A little. I think that field is more about how to capture clinical information to be used by other clinicians in active patient care. I could be wrong, though.
That could be it. I dated a guy for a while who was an MD, a radiologist and computer programmer, who did some pioneering work in digital storage systems for xray images. I went with him to an American Medical Informatics Association meeting one
year, & it seemed like there was a very broad range of medical info handling represented. But it's kinda in the faint mists of the past, so I was just curious if your stuff overlapped with that at all.
Definitely overlaps in a lot of ways.
Much more than 40 hours as a District Loss Prevention Investigator.
