Learning to Ask for Help as a Health Unit Coordinator (Video)


The quickest way to fail as a Health Unit Coordinator is to not ask for help. You can work for a company for 20 years and still not know everything. That’s the reason why you must learn to ask for help.

Let me give you an example. Let’s say a doctor gives a nurse a verbal order for an x-ray procedure. The nurse comes to you and asks you to help her put the order in. You both spend five minutes trying to put the correct order in, but neither one of you can find it.

So, what should you do? 

The answer is to call the Radiology department and ask them how to order that specific test.

Now see that wasn’t hard now, was it.
