Healthcare Risk Management Manager Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Healthcare Risk Management Manager in Chattanooga:
"Life In Risk Management."
As a Risk Manager, the one thing to keep in mind is that you must be flexible. You will make plans for your day and then your day may well take a vastly different direction. It will make report preparation a challenge. It will make organization a challenge. It will be important that as you respond to requests for information and advice, you take the time to care for yourself. Risk Managers work in a somewhat isolated environment in the hospital, dealing with confidential matters. Very few understand what we do. Work to make yourself and Risk Management an important member of the organization. Be visible. Do not bring your work home with you. It will be good for neither your nor your family.
