Patient Interactions as a Unit Secretary (Video)



As a Unit Secretary there are a lot of times when we do interact with the patients.

Some examples include:
  • Feeding the patient (make sure the patient is not an aspiration precaution).
  • Raise and lower the Head of the Bed (check with the nurse first to make sure that there are no orders for it to remain at a certain degree).
  • If the patient is sitting in a recliner, you can raise the feet part (check with the nurse first to make sure that there are no orders for the patient to remain in a certain position).
  • Wheel the patient down when they are discharged.
  • Take blankets, pillowcases, juice, ice to the patient when they call on the call light.
  • Sometimes, the patient does not want to be alone and just wants someone in the room with them. If you can spare a few minutes, just sit and talk with them.
