I resigned as the Clinical Coordinator of my ER, in the perfect world we are facilitating flow, acting as resource for all staff, listening to the doctors complain, no pt assignment, take care of admissions, transfers, etc. I did the scheduling, yearly staff evaluations, attempted to advocate for the staff. Assisted in hiring and firing. But in my imperfect world, I was expected to maintain staffing levels- this means I worked over or was called in if we were short. 95% of the time I had a full pt load while doing everything else, was expected to carry a beeper 24/7, which I did NOT because my manager was not willing to pay me call pay, therefor I was NOT on call. The job was a real pain in the A*#! I resigned and transferred to PACU, where I make more money, work less hours, and expend much less energy. Also I don't have to listen to a manager downgrade his staff when they were busting their butts daily. Beware of positions without a clear role definition.
