The 3 Hardest Things to Learn as a Health Unit Coordinator (Video)

I was asked a question on my YouTube channel about what is the hardest thing to learn as a Health Unit Coordinator. I replied with three answers.  

1. Learning medical terminology. 
2. Learning how to multi-task. 
3. Learning how to deal with all of the personalities that are in a hospital.
