    RE: assigned worklists
    on some rotations, clerk assigns “buckets” of fixed number of outpatient plain films or CTs or MRIs. 
    Other rotations are based on site:  e.g. cover plain films at site X from 4:30pm yesterday to 4:30pm today; or cover CTs from this time to that time.  The latter type of rotation does not require active “assignment” because we have a sense of how many average studies are done in that period and it is reasonable. This is still considered an assigned worklist because all the work at that site is yours, if you left some behind then it’d be obvious it belongs to you, if you are fast and want to have a 2 hour lunch break it’s fine, or but if you are slow because you like to call up clinicians and make small talk then you might finish at 7pm instead of 5pm.
