How to Avoid Getting the Axe from Your Healthcare Job

2. Own Up to Mistakes

We all make mistakes. If we’re lucky, the mistake doesn’t hurt anyone and is forgotten about. Unfortunately, in the healthcare field, a mistake can cost you your career. We don’t need to tell you to be cautious in your job. But if you do make an error, own up to it. You may have given Mrs. Jones the wrong test results, but if you explain the situation to the patient and your supervisor as soon as you realize it happened, you can avoid a world of hurt. Plus, taking responsibility for your actions rather than trying to hide a mishap shows that you are mature and an employee who is worth investing in.
