How to be Proactive as a Health Unit Coordinator (Video)

Below is a list of ways that I’m proactive as a Health Unit Coordinator. Being proactive means acting in anticipation of future problems, needs, or changes. I like to get the small things out of the way so that I can be ready for anything that happens.

*If a patient is coming, I’ll get the chart ready and will fill in the ADT (Admission/Discharge/Transfer) Book as much as I can.

*I’ll make sure all the printers are filled with enough paper.

*I make sure we have enough supplies in the pantry and the breakroom.

*I’ll ask the nurses and PCAs if they need any call placed or supplies ordered.

*I don’t wait until a new alert pops up to check the electronic chart. I stay on top of the new orders all day.

*And finally be constantly aware of what’s going on around the unit.
