Medical Assistant Jobs – What Are The Roles And Responsibilities?

Depending on their station, medical assistants are tasked with various roles and responsibilities. Mostly, they work under medical directors allowing him/her to run the office efficiently. They are tasked with running both the front and back office duties of any medial director’s office.

What Are The Roles And Responsibilities Of Medical Assistants?

1. Conducting Patient Assessments

Here a medical assistant is tasked with obtaining the medical history of a patient, checking the vital signs and also conducting a physical exam. Some of the vital signs that need to be checked include the temperature, the breathing rate and also the blood pressure. With the physical exam, the MA measures the weight and height of the patient as well as looking for any irregularities and deformities on the patient. While obtaining the medical history, the MA asks the patient about his/her medical conditions, allergies or current medications. These findings are recorded on the patient chart and he/she alerts the physician about the results.

2. Doing Tests

Depending on what a patient is suffering from, the doctor can task the MA with taking tests such as X-rays, MRIs, CT scans and much more. Usually, the doctor will provide a protocol for the tests, that the MA should follow to the letter. If there are blood, stool or urine samples that need to be collected, the doctor assigns the responsibility to the medical assistant. If blood work is needed, the MA is also responsible for drawing blood from the patient. On the other hand, the medical assistant is responsible for processing samples. He/she packs and ships them to the appropriate laboratory for the tests to commence.

3. Preparing Patients For Any Medical Procedure

If a patient needs a medical procedure performed either in the emergency room or the operating room, the medical assistant is responsible for preparing the patient for the procedure. The medical assistant is tasked with removing bandaged or clothing on the patient to expose the affected area. In the event of brain surgery, the medical assistant also assists with shaving the patient’s hair for the procedure to be conducted effortlessly.

Take an instance where a male patient has to go through an EKG procedure. The doctor requests the medical assistant to shave the patient’s chest to make sure the electrodes are in direct contact with the skin. Once the test is completed, the medical assistant collects the data and removes all the equipment from the patient as well as helping him to dress up if necessary.

4. Clerical Work

Besides assisting the doctor with patients, the medical assistant also performs some clerical work. It might involve answering phones, filing medical records and anything else in the doctor’s office. In some cases, they are allowed to greet patients as well as take their personal information such as addresses and the insurance information. They need to keep the doctor’s office organized at all time to make sure that it runs efficiently. If a patient does not have insurance, the medical assistant needs to inquire about any other modes of payment.
