Hospital Admitting Clerks Day

Every April 5th is observed as Hospital Admitting Clerks Day. It’s a day to celebrate those dedicated individuals who are responsible for processing patients when they arrive at a hospital so that they can receive the treatment they need as soon as possible.

These employees ask patients questions that might be pertinent to their situation or health condition and ensure that the paperwork is completed so that the hospital can take the necessary steps to treat the patient.

Although hospital admitting clerks serve a vital function in any hospital, they often don’t receive the respect they deserve. All of us can change that, however, by observing this day when it comes around every year.
