I agree with all of you. I graduated in the last 1.5 years and am pretty good at managing my time (definitely still have room for improvement but so much quicker than I used to be). But I just wonder if I'm seeing patients back to back on busy day, how can I do a thorough hx, assessment, write Rx, order labs in needed, and close my charts in that small time period. Plus I am in pediatrics so it isn't as easy as adult care when they cooperate
If I work a full day I am charting during my lunch and not being paid for this. If I see 20-30 patients in a day I can close quite a few charts but definitely not give great care and close all of them. And most days I work part time, so I feel like I am always waiting for xray or lab to call me back with results and then managing care from home after work hours, even if it is just 15 min here and there.
Plus I am only paid when I am seeing patients, so I still wouldn't be paid for staying later at work and finishing my charting. Thoughts on how to proceed or how to agree on this with the practice?
