How To Deal With Rude Doctors and Nurses (Video)

The number one problem in healthcare today is doctor and nurse etiquette. Nurses often have a hard time dealing with rude doctors, whereas physicians can be very unpleasant to deal with due to low payments from Medicaid/Medicare which is causing them much higher overhead costs.

There are many ways to deal with a doctor or nurse who is rude. One way, for example, would be not taking any notice of their manners and just carrying on as normal in order to ignore them until they're finished talking. Another option might involve being respectful but also firm about demands made on you. 

In all cases, it is best to remain calm and collected. In other instances when hospitals staff members seem more approachable than others, you may be able to explain to them how they can better communicate with you. 

It's important that we all work together and remember that we are here for the patients.

Yo! I know this lady who allegedly killed her husband. She's a former coworker, who just happened to be a unit secretary. She's in jail now, but when I tell you that I'm in shock......

What Are The Responsibilities of a Unit Secretary (Video)

Unit secretaries have the responsibility to compile lists of supplies and equipment for their departments. They also organize materials, plan events, help to maintain morale in the department, and provide support and guidance for their co-workers. 


What's in it for me?

The Unit Secretary will be the link between management and staff, ensuring a great way to use your people skills! The best part about this job is you're recognized as someone who can handle anything thrown at them by whoever walks onto the unit - even if they don't always show gratitude or appreciation.  

Tips for Dressing Appropriately as a ​Unit Secretary (Video)

Dressing appropriately as a unit secretary is important for several reasons. For one, it's the first impression that you make on your new coworkers when they see what type of clothing and accessories are allowed in their work environment; also you don't want to be that person walking by wearing inappropriate attire. People do talk.  

Dress codes vary from hospital to hospital. Some offices require business-like clothing, while others may have more casual dress codes; however, it's important to always be professional and presentable at work!

The following are some helpful information about different types of outfits most medical facilities recommend:

A uniform. At the hospital, we are required to wear black or khaki pants and a white shirt/blouse.

Business Casual. Blends traditional business wear with a more relaxed style still professional and appropriate enough for an office environment. You may have to wear a nice pair of slacks (any color) with a shirt/blouse (any color). On the ICU's other sister floor the unit secretary wears business casual. 

Scrubs. Nurses wear scrubs and sometimes the unit secretary will wear them too. I've mainly seen the CNA/HUC wear scrubs because they will work the desk and assist patients.

These are the most common dress code requirements that you will see while working in a hospital. Remember that you are the first impression for not only the hospital but also your unit.
