and applying basic ergonomic standards and operating instructions to specific conditions,and if an
ergonomic assessment is needed, an Ergo Self-Assessment form V0806 should be filled out the by
the employee and forwarded to Occupational Health for follow-up. A 2162 Incident Report in
ASIST should be entered into the program and extracted for evaluation. The workstation is
assessed forproper positioning to identify problem areas. This information can also be found on
the VANCHCS SharePoint with slides to assist like: “Putting yourworkstation to work for you -
the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working
population; Risk Factors; Stressful Postures.” There are many types of positions that are more
harmful than others; there are some simple exercises that can be done to relieve discomfort for
such things as: Carpel Tunnel, back strain and pressure,neck tension,arm and legs for numbness
and tingling, thus the importance of having an organized desk to aid in the discomfort. Also
demonstrated knowledge of investigative techniques relative to ergonomic evaluations to identify
problem areas involving how an employee interacts with their workspace environment. Assisted
with assessing both the workstation and the employee’s environment to see what problems exist,
such as: work surface, keyboard positioning, monitor height, computer setup and placement.
Then depending on the findings, adjustments will be made to ensure the employee is able to work
with minimal discomfort. Such problems might include the following: Carpel Tunnel, back strain
and pressure,neck tension,arm and legs for numbness and tingling, thus the importance of having
an organized desk to aid in the discomfort. A reassessment may be required as the employee may
need additional adjustments as conditions increase or decrease. This can depend on whether there
are external medical appliances (wrist guards,neck brace, hand guards,etc) that would need to be
worn during working hours.
 Applied statistical methods to the collection, computation, analysis,editing and presentation of
data, and currently am part of the bi-weekly Environmental Rounds that occur the 2nd and 4th
Tuesday of the month. Inspection findings are collected and entered into the WALSH Tracking
System for correction.

workplace injuries and give general time frames of when incidents occurs,all of which is
presented weekly as available. This data assists leaders in proactively reducing injury and illness
incidents. I also gather, edit, analyze and present statistical information to the DOL specialist to
close any open incidents.I directly work with supervision to express the importance of timely
incident reporting and closure; all are according to Section 1904 (OSHA Reporting and Records
keeping), VHA Directive 2011-020 and Automated Safety Incident Surveillance and Tracking
System requirements. I completed and submitted the yearly “Safety and Sanitation Rounds” for
East Bay Division that was conducted in June, and entered this data into the WALSH Integrated
Tracking System. These entries will be tracked, edited when necessary,and “resolved” to maintain
compliance monitoring. I completed and submitted the yearly “Site Safety Plan” suspense due on
July 15, 2013 to the Learning Management System Records Management Programs Specialist.
 Maintained safety office budget,records files, supplies,ADP equipment and currently, the budget
designated to safety is underFund Control Point 6165. I monitor the 2237’s that are being
submitted for approval to cover outstanding project costs orreplenishment of funds for the next
fiscal quarter, and to ensure these funds are available when needed. I also identify to management
priority purchases needed as well as place online supply orders using Metro Office Supplies’ site.
Moreover, I ensure ADP equipment is secured by monitoring employee PC’s to ensure they are
not left active leading to HIPPA violations, potential Privacy Officer Intervention, citations and
cost to the VA for Identity Theft Protection Coverage. I also keep extension records on my “U”
and “W” drives of various records to provide ease of access to uppermanagement if requested.
 Responsible to assemble and prepare pertinent information related to correspondence,inquiries,
meetings and technical reports. Prepare and at time author documents for signatures as follows:
o Memos– Site Designated Safety Officer; Contracted Clinical Nursing Home Programs
Overview for 2012 for Chief of Safety, Associate Directors and Director’s signature
according to Policy Statement 00-01. I ensure all attachments are properly presented in
order of precedence.

o Monthly, I route the SF 1164 (Claim for Reimbursement for Expenditures on office
Business)for the Chief of Safety that goes to the Fiscal Travel Office for payment.
o Recorder for the monthly EOCC meeting and author/submit minutes according
to policy guidance.
 Record, transcribe and disseminate the Bi-weekly Engineering and Safety Collaborative Meeting
minutes, update the information, restrict document access and upload it to the Engineering
SharePoint under Agenda and Minutes; committee members utilize the minutes to mitigate action
items.
o Example: For instance, the current conversation is about the proper storage of hazardous
wastes and DECONC entry-level in regards to the Compressed Gas Cylinder Storage
Shed at Mather. Where the exterior compress hazardous gas shed that near Bldg 700 Ed
collects Mather on the floor. The gas cylinder stands in the water which causes
corrosion. Leaves blow in the shed underthe gate/doorbecause the bottomgap is -6
inches, and is currently being resolved by installing new doors to prevent this water and
debris intrusion.
 Record and update the monthly EMFT meeting minutes and securely save them to my “U” and
“W” drives; this provides oversight for compliance with directives and trouble-free access and
retrieval of reports for later meetings. I author and reply to Outlook emails requesting information
from departments. This information includes, but is not limited to, outstanding incident reports,
ASISTS statistics; inspection reports,management requests,request for travel reimbursement,
supply requests,management correspondence for signature,etc. I schedule inspection dates and
times and collect data to complete the VA offsite Contracted and Non-Contracted Nursing Home
inspections.I scan final reports and file them in a binder and electronically, on my “U” and on the
Safety “W” drive’s CNH Inspections folder. This ensures documentation identifying
compliant/non-compliant CNH programs is available for future reference, thus ensuring the VA
and 38 CFR 61, GPD Final Rule, is complied with. I orchestrate the VANTS line calls and/orV-
Tel meetings by utilizing the proper electronic data systems,send Outlook Meeting Calendar
event invites to attendees with appropriate call-in information as well as the agenda and
correspondence needed for a successfulmeeting. Author emails sent to all Northern California
sites to obtain Fire Drill and Site Safety Meeting minutes. Additionally, I secure the minutes on
my “U” and on the Safety “W” drives for easy access to these reports as needed to maintain our
compliance measure. I ensure that the Safety Specialist are informed of the New Employee
Orientation, and I participate as needed,once I am more familiar with the information presented,I
will be a presenteron behalf of Safety and Occupational Health.

the bi-monthly EMFT meeting minutes, update the template and save on my “U” drive , “W”
drive and Emergency Management SharePoint, for easy access and retrieval to these reports as
needed,and to maintain our compliance measure. I was the official Recorder for and participated
in the May 2013 East Bay Earthquake Exercise that was facilitated in the Martinez Command
Center in the CREC. The primary focus was to evaluate our procedures on: communication,
redundancy,staff accountability, and patient evacuation leading to a more efficient emergency
management program.
 Testing of the communication devices at the April 2013 meeting discussed the following:
Communications - Police Radio System & Dispatch Center pending radio install at the Chico
OPC. Amateur Radio communication systems that are still in the process ofbeing built, so more
people can be reached and we don’t have to rely on the public repeater stations. Automated
Notification Systems and the national program office had sent a few systemtests to users and
where a number of issues were discovered. The VA Notification systemis the alerting part of
VAPAS and the VAPAS systemtracks personnellocation and welfare. However, more tests are
expected to come.

Duties and Responsibilities:
 Utilize such programs as VistA-Veterans information Security Application (formally DHCP-
Dedicated Health Care Provider), Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and Visio. As a
former ADPAC for 15 years, I understand the ANSI standard M programming language is a
combination of Symbols, Alpha and Numeric characters. When formulated in a certain sequence,
they depict a certain function. This is kept in a database library of information, from which the
database management systemmanipulates the data and interacts with all users. This interactive
dialogue makes it possible for a continuous exchange of information and questions between the
computer and the end user. The VA FileMan is a central package wit the Kernel and is used by
programmers and end-users. It can be used as a stand along or as a set of application utilities.
Each VA FileMan has a data dictionary, which includes parameters by which users drive all input
to and output from these files. The VA FileMan is considered “public domain” software, which
maintained by the VA and is used by clinical and administrative staff. To ensure security and data
management, end-users should be backing up the files to either their “U drive” or “Q drive” for the
public share folder - the “O drive” to archive their Outlook mail. I answer(ed) menu options
requests,log in NOIS, as for remedy tickets, upgraded PC’s, long into an end-users PC to re-
configure, setup or perform data recovery.

reported by the applicant and/or the National Practitioner Data Bank. Responsible for preparing
official board action for review by the Physician’s Professional Standards Board, HR, Chief of
Staff and Health Care System Director. This process can and usually does not happen quickly and
can actually take in excess of 30 days,depending on where the provider has been practicing; the
geographical location and the prompt response.
 Proven ability to deal with professional, administrative and technical personnel at all levels,
providing customer service via the phone or in person on a daily basis. Communication is done
via Outlook; Vista; Memo and in person.I clearly communicate orally when talking to all levels of
leadership, when assisting themwith problem solving issues that do arise, between co-workers,
department leaders and medical staff. I try to assist in the understanding ofa problem, how with
positive corrective action, the problem can be resolved with proper documentation; demonstrating
attentiveness with all customers, with the highest level of integrity. I work with veterans who not
necessarily call about Compensation and Pension, but who are trying to get information about
pending appointments, or perhaps one who wants to file a complaint with the Patient
Representative. In the Compensation and Pension area, I provide oral instruction to my
subordinates as well as written instruction and guidelines. I provide written statisticalinformation
to my boss,who reports to his up line. Currently, I’m in the Emerging Leadership Development
program, herein which, the ELDP aligns itself with VHA’s High Performance Development
Model (HPDM), which is built on the premise that customer driven, value added quality patient
care delivery to veterans is VHA’s primary mission. In order to achieve this mission, all
employees must continuously strive for higher levels of performance as reflected in eight core
competencies. These eight core competencies are Personal Mastery,Technical Skills,
Interpersonal Effectiveness, Customer Service, Flexibility/Adaptability, Creative Thinking,
Systems Thinking, and Organizational Stewardship. I‘ve developed a Cardiac Protocol Worksheet
that is being utilized by my Percutaneous Coronary Intervention project manager; a Visio
spreadsheet forboth Ambulance Procedure Protocol PCI Unit and Inpatient wards. On May 12th,
I gave my Emerging Leaders project presentation to a wide variety of professionals that included:
Dr. Cahill, Mr. Mendoza, KC Carlson-Chief, VISN Planning Office, Site managers, classmates
from various position levels, my boss and project mentor
 Demonstrated daily the ability to work independently in the accomplishment of a wide variety of
administrative functions,and to anticipate and identify problems, and through a high degree of
creativity, ingenuity, and initiative, develop appropriate methods of solutions . Currently as the
Lead of Compensation and Pension, working independently is something I do most of the time, as
the Supervisor frequently is out of the office involved in setting up other Outpatient clinic is other
cities. I understand that I will serve as the staff assistant in the Medical Staff office, where I will

If this information is incorrect, I then cancel the claim in the VistA program underthe Automated Medical Information Examination (AMIE) menu, giving exact reason back the Regional Office as to why the claim was cancelled for their correction and resubmission. I indicate on the claim, such as: 90 minutes, 120 minutes or 240 minutes, giving the appropriate time allotment for the medical provider to conduct the examination and review the military folder.

  • 8. separated by the last two numbers of the social security number and distributed to my scheduling staff. I am responsible for the payroll of both my fulltime employees and my contracted medical providers, done on a bi-weekly basis. Create excel spreadsheets that provide a variety of detailed information for all Compensation and Pension department throughout my eight facilities. These include – phone listing; contract providers information (title/clinic location/clinic abbreviation/phone number/email and home address); emergency staff call back list; clinic location with provider name and days at that clinic and one that tracks trends in provider exams that warrant hiring additional staff at a location. Conduct 15-20 minute daily meetings that keeps everyone focused on the days tasks,which may need to change is a special circumstance presents. Provide a ear for staff who need to talk and if needed,to assist themwith refocusing back to their job. If this fails, I offer the opportunity for staff counseling. If employee experiences an “on the job injury”, contact one of medical providers for examination, fill out the appropriated report of injury form and place this in the employees personnelrecord. Then if needed, redistribute work with other staff. Responsible for fund control points – increasing/decreasing requested amounts to cover invoices; and reconciliations. Work closely with FEE Department for Contracted Providers that include invoice payment close outs; decreasing payment reconciliation. I have also created the AMIE or 2507 for the BDD/Quick Start/Pre-Discharge program, then scheduled these with the appropriate providers and updated the Load/Edit information as applicable.  Daily demonstration of my skills in writing that reflects organization of subject matter and support for your position and conclusions,which spans overmy 25 years of VA employment, I have been a Union Stewart / Vice President of the Employees Association. When it comes to the principles of Federal employment opportunity program, I have a basic knowledge of the principles , concepts, legal requirements and methodology from those whom I have known that used this program and from the Presentation at my Emerging Leaders Program that I am currently taking. I have learned that Mediation is available to all employees to get a type of problem that can’t be resolved without this. During the Mediation process,the Employee / Union / Management and the Mediator are the ones involved. Anotherconcept and Methodology is that Mediation is faster, is cheaper for both those involved and the time it takes. Helps with the communication between the parties involved and helps them create their own solutions both realistic and mutually satisfactory. I have had to do this with one of my staff now who had a problem with me and out a positive working relationship and are kept confidential.  Compile numerical, statistical and narrative data from a variety of reports that involve, new insurance company adds,new groups,and new patients to the group. I run reports (like the ones I mentioned above). This compilation is used to determine if the process is being utilized to the fullest or if a monitor needs to be executed for a short period of time. I have also done compilations that I have documented in my OPF from otheremployers where I’ve been employed, like: Statistical control-where I worked in the lab at Production Plated Plastics in Richland MI, compiled a variety of stats for Kellogg Company, Plant Training Department. As the senior insurance person, co-workers, my lead or even Asst MAS Chief/MCCR Coordinator, will asks me questions to assist themwith problems that we can resolve together. Once I run the various reports and compile them into a percentage sheet,I have if needed,put them into a power point or excel spreadsheet. These have been thus forwarded to my Lead, Coordinator and the VISN Coordinator.  Identified problems, determining accuracy and relevance of information, at which this includes the ability to use sound judgment to generate and evaluate alternatives and to make recommendations.  Learned C&P regulations and procedures pretty quickly and was able to function as the lead, which most complex situations I resolved. The program was moving from Mare Island to McClellan and the Lead at that time didn’t want to transfer with the new programs location. Yet, the reason for this quick learning process was due to the position I held in MCCF, where I was the Supervisor over 1st Party Patient Accounts and Insurance,where I was comfortable and very knowledgeable. However, my 10 plus years of success at my former VISN and being designated by our C&P VISN Coordinator as the VISN Insurance and 3rd Party Patient Accounts Trainer, in which I was considered an “Expert in Residence, lead me towards wanting to learn something new. So, in seeking a transfer to anotherdepartment, I was offered this lateral transfer to Compensation and Pension, where I had little knowledge of the program, but was eager to learn. Therefore, as we have new staff, some part-time, it is imperative to review the manual for compliance and changes staff try to interpret in a different manner. These policy’s, rules and
  • 9. regulations were established and are to be adhered to, as this ensures that the department is working smoothly and will encounterless errors, when reports and statistics are reported and monitored by upper management. These rules however, do not apply to non-routine, often complex assignments that are asked of me outside of the department’s status quo. Statistics and/or information that is needed by me is compiled and reported. Also,I have reviewed the 2507 to make sure that all the remarks section explains the reason for the exams ordered; ensure nothing is left out; is questionable and needs investigation,which will determine how much time is given to the provider to complete the examination. Then once the examination and the report have been released, it goes to the rating specialist who will use several types of analysis skills to determine the percentage rating, such as:Medical terminology, investigation and attorney.  Created many 2507 from the MSR and the form the service member fills out that accompanies the MSR in date even order. In creating a 2507, I will ensure that the exams and the appropriated request by the examiner is supported. This includes using medical terminology and sentence structure that leads to clear and justifiable instructions and direction. Each file shall be maintained togetherfrom the creation to the rating decision and the file is returned the originating Regional Office records room as complete.  Additionally as the former Lead of Compensation / Pension Coordinator - I was responsible for variety of Admin duties; staff work-flow; payroll both full-time and contracted medical staff, and provide support..I compile numerical, statistical and narrative data from a variety of reports that involve, such as: where higher ration of providers are needed for C&P; what type of provider is needed (Medical, Mental Health, Audio, etc); work load analysis reports; tracking existing program(s) for effectiveness and process workflow Review AMIE's from various regional offices - for correct exams ordered or if canceled in the (AMIE) Automated Medical Information Exchange menu, giving exact reason to the Regional Office(s), as to why the claim was canceled/reopened; needs correction/resubmission. My work involving the collection, compilation, and/ortracking of data in support of an organization’s credentials and privilege program, while receiving/processing documents and reports in accordance with established procedures,reviews documents and reports for completeness and enters pertinent information into an automated tracking system. Also, perform database file searches of privilege expiration dates as well as time limited credentials, while being mindful that all these will be in accordance with VHA directives, VAHQ and JC requirements and works in direct support of the QI Office’s Medical Staff functions.  Outstanding ability to work with customers to assess needs, provide assistance,resolve problems, and satisfy expectations.

I try to assist in the understanding of a problem, how with positive corrective action, the problem can be resolved with proper documentation; demonstrating attentiveness with all customers , with the highest level of integrity. In the Compensation and Pension area, I provide oral instruction to my subordinates as well as written instruction and guidelines.

These eight core competencies are Personal Mastery,Technical Skills, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Customer Service, Flexibility/Adaptability, Creative Thinking, Systems Thinking, and Organizational Stewardship. I‘ve developed a Cardiac Protocol Worksheet that is being utilized by my Percutaneous Coronary Intervention project manager; a Visio spreadsheet forboth Ambulance Procedure Protocol PCI Unit and Inpatient wards.  For example: when I was in the MCCR arena, I have trained new employees and Davenport College students,helping them to understand what MCCR means, what the function of MCCR are, and how it plays a big part in the Revenue process. How this helps to maintain a place for our Veterans, along with the level of services we provide. I do this with enthusiasmand motivation, also by encouraging everyone to continue the processes they use and by,offering new processes that will increase and/or correct some problems that are being encountered,for a more positive resolution. Generally, the numbers of groups and managerial staff I have worked with has totaled 15-25 at one time. I also developed a step-by-step training manual and data collection form for
  • 10. insurance verification. These tools are what I used when I trained other sites within our VISN, as the VISN Insurance Trainer. o Also, for example, when I worked in Psychiatry Service as the Assistant Program Manager for the Clozaril Drug study and Substance Abuse Treatment Unit, I the treatment team that sought ways to provide necessary educationaltraining that was not currently a part of the program. When I worked in the admissions area, I developed a step-by-step training manual for the Admission, Nursing Home and Respite Care processes. This includes performing duties as the ADPAC and Narcotics Inspector, whereby I am answering menu problems, requesting menu options,submitting NOIS issues. I assist with PC upgrades,logging into and out of the computer with end users, printer resolution issues. Anotherway I communicate is via Outlook and VistA. This communication involves a variety of different types of information that may be directly for one or more of my providers; Department Supervisors; Chief of Staff; ISO’s and so forth.  Was responsible for over seven staff members, I facilitate a wide variety of services; I managed workload and do data analysis for C&P for Northern California Health Care Systems. This includes reviewing the AMIE (Automated Medical Information Exchange) or numeric 2507 request,ensuring that each provider is allotted the appropriate time to conduct the exams that are ordered by the Regional Office. This also ensures that the veteran is getting the attention that he/she is entitled too within the 30 days.My responsibility make sure that the appointment are being set and divided among the provider amicably, utilizing our permanent staff first, then fee staff and finally, our contracted providers. Who will then exam the veteran, get their notes entered into the system,we in turn fix errors if they exist, transcribe the data and release that exam information back to the Regional Office for the veteran to receive his/herrating to substantiate the reason for his/her request for compensation / pension for a proposed “Service Connected” related disability, “Non-Service Connected” disability pension or Increase in disability. Also, striving to maintain good organizational skills; continue to exemplify my commitment to the organizations Goal and Visions. One in which include; building strong links between individuals and groups of individuals that make up a TEAM (Together Everyone Accomplishes Much). Examples of this are as follows: 1. staying abreast of the organizational changes whereas,there may be changes in work environment that effect staff. Assist if needed for work flow continuity, to ensure that it processes are smooth if transition occurs. 3. being mindful of leading by example; to accept accountability for others,myself, and the organization’s development, which I feel is a very important part of being a team.  Possessing and Demonstrating the knowledge of data input methods and procedures and ability to use multiple computer applications to retrieve information, generate correspondence,and complete I have and continue to use VistA-Veterans information Security Application (formally DHCP- Dedicated Health Care Provider), Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and Visio. As a former ADPAC for 15 years, I understand the ANSI standard M programming language is a combination of Symbols, Alpha and Numeric characters. When formulated in a certain sequence, they depict a certain function. This is kept in a database library of information, from which the database management systemmanipulates the data and interacts with all users. This interactive dialogue makes it possible for a continuous exchange of information and questions between the computer and the end user. The VA FileMan is a central package wit the Kernel and is used by programmers and end-users. It can be used as a stand along or as a set of application utilities. Each VA FileMan has a data dictionary, which includes parameters by which users drive all input to and output from these files. The VA FileMan is considered “public domain” software, which maintained by the VA and is used by clinical and administrative staff. To ensure security and data management, end-users should be backing up the files to either their “U drive” or “Q drive” for the public share folder - the “O drive” to archive their Outlook mail. I answer(ed) menu options requests,log in NOIS, as for remedy tickets, upgraded PC’s, long into an end-users PC to re- configure, setup or perform data recovery.  Daily demonstrated ability to gather and analyze informative are on or data and make decisions and/orrecommendations. Was responsible to ensure I had to learn C&P regulations and procedures pretty quickly for me to be able to function as the lead, which most complex situations I resolved. Utilized various electronic data processing (EDP) systems for inputting data related to claims adjudication, processing,monitoring, and correspondence preparation. Acted as an
  • 11. advocate for those veterans and their beneficiaries in their dealings with other VA elements and organizations that affect their claims. Once I received the file and reviewed the contents,making determinations relative to VA hospitalization, outpatient treatment institutional or domiciliary care and basic eligibility for vocational rehabilitation was necessary to inform the veteran of potential multiple appointments. The program was moving from Mare Island to McClellan and the Lead at that time didn’t want to transfer with the new programs location.  Yet, the reason for this quick learning process was due to the position I held in MCCF, where I was the Supervisor over 1st Party Patient Accounts and Insurance,where I was comfortable and very knowledgeable. However, my 10 plus years of success at my former VISN and being designated by our C&P VISN Coordinator as the VISN Insurance and 3rd Party Patient Accounts Trainer, in which I was considered an “Expert in Residence, lead me towards wanting to learn something new. So, in seeking a transfer to anotherdepartment, I was offered this lateral transfer to Compensation and Pension, where I had little knowledge of the program, but was eager to learn. Therefore, as we have new staff, some part-time, it is imperative to review the manual for compliance and changes staff try to interpret in a different manner. These policy’s, rules and regulations were established and are to be adhered to, as this ensures that the department is working smoothly and will encounterless errors, when reports and statistics are reported and monitored by upper management. These rules however, do not apply to non-routine, often complex assignments that are asked of me outside of the department’s status quo. Statistics and/or information that is needed by me is compiled and reported. Also,I have reviewed the 2507 to make sure that all the remarks section explains the reason for the exams ordered; ensure nothing is left out; is questionable and needs investigation,which will determine how much time is given to the provider to complete the examination. Then once the examination and the report has been released, it goes to the rating specialist who will use several types of analysis skills to determine the percentage rating, such as:Medical terminology, investigation and attorney.
