A work schedule is needed by an HIM department where there are multiple employees and multiple shifts of work and are required by unions to be posted for the employee to view. Nursing and direct patient care departments prepare schedules all the time so they know that they have adequate coverage for patient care. The HIM work schedule should be posted by the week listing a Sunday through Saturday work week and lists each employee by name, position and the starting time and the ending time that they work. If a day is scheduled off that should be noted on the schedule.
For this part of the assignment, prepare a work schedule for the Release of Information Associate position that you have selected.
