Top 3 Viewed Videos on My YouTube Channel (Video)

I've compiled a list of the top 3 watched YouTube videos on my channel. Hopefully, this will help you to get a little break from your work and learn something new. 


1. This video is at number 1 with 4,823 views. It explains how the first hour of my day starts and I'm convinced if you do these steps then when the curveballs come they will not stress you out. 




2. This is a video I made about the 3 hardest things to learn as a Unit Secretary. It was my first ever Number 1 ranking on YouTube, so it's kind of neat looking back at all those years ago! 4338 views for this particular one - not too shabby considering how long ago it was published...




3. I'm still shocked at how fast this video rose to the top. Sitting a number 3 with 3,206 views, I talk about my one day working in the Emergency Room.




If you haven't already done so, don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel. Thanks for reading and watching!

As a Hospital Secretary, You Know All the Important Details (Video)

As a hospital secretary, you know all the important details that happen around the hospital. 


You know how to make the patients feel at home and get them taken care of efficiently. You know how to be a go-to person for any department in the hospital when it's crazy busy because you pinch-hit wherever you're needed most. 


There's nothing like being involved in patient care directly by doing administrative duties - which means taking care of operations on both ends. 


Be Prepared to Work Harder as Unit Secretary (Video)

With the vaccine mandates for healthcare workers spreading across the county, as a Unit Secretary, I want you to be prepared to work harder and longer hours.


You know firsthand about the staffing shortages for those of you who worked at a hospital before the pandemic. 


And the pandemic not only exposed the staffing shortages but also stretched them.


With these vaccine mandates, it will be stretched even more as your coworkers quit or are fired. 


So I want you to get your mind together before you walk through those hospitals doors. 


I want you to be prepared to float to another floor if your department gets shut down. I want you to be ready to float to another floor if another department has needs more significant than your department.

2 More Tips for the New Unit Secretary (Video)



I made a video a while ago titled 3 Tips for the New Unit Secretary, where I explained that you should take good notes, understand that there are a lot of personalities in the hospital, and know that burnout may happen.

In this video, I added two more tips, and one of them is still to take good notes! The other is to be time. 

Watch the video above to find out why.

3 Signs You're a Good Unit Secretary (Video)

These are the 3 ways that you can tell that you are a good Unit Secretary.

  1. You are always in control and can make decisions without being micromanaged. 
  2. You leave no one to wonder where to get information.
  3. And you understand that there are ALOT of different personalities in a hospital and you can work with them all. 

3 Tips for New Unit Secretaries (Video)



These are the 3 Tips I would give to the new Unit Secretaries. 

Take good notes during orientation. There will be tests/exams that you will order daily, weekly, or monthly. Then there will be tests/exams that will be ordered once every blue moon. So what you see in orientation may not come around for a while, so that's why it is best to write everything down. 

There are a lot of different personalities in the hospital. From the nurses, doctors, patients, visitors, vendors, etc., people are stressed. One thing that I would recommend is to understand this and walk away when necessary. 

Burnout may happen. You need to know your body and know your limitations. Overtime may be abundant in the hospital setting, and the temptation to get a lot of OT is there. Even if you choose not to work a lot, burnout could still happen. That's why I encourage you to use your PTO (Personal Time Off) and take a vacation.
