How I Start My Day as a Unit Secretary (Video)

I start my day as Unit Secretary by doing these five things. 

  1. I get a good report from the night unit secretary. I want to know what patients are constantly on the call light, which patient is going to have a procedure done, family issues, etc.
  2. I’ll wipe down and sanitize my workstation.
  3. I’ll then log into the computer system and check for any new orders or check for orders that may have been missed.
  4. Then I’ll check the printers/fax machine and fill them with paper if necessary.
  5. And finally, I’ll check all the physical charts to make sure that they have enough face sheets, patient labels, and that the correct patient paperwork is in the correct chart. 

After that, I move on to the rest of the day.
