Q: What is it like working as a Medical Records Clerk?

Medical Records Clerk in Calgary:
"Satisfaction."
Pros: I like knowing that I am making sure that a patient/client's record of their involvement with us is complete, legally protected and archived securely so that the client's future can be much more positive.
Cons: If I have to leave my work area to substitute for someone who is ill of on vacation, the work piles up immediately and sometimes, after getting back to where I left off, I have to leave the work station again. Once behind, it is next to impossible to get ahead.
