How to Avoid Getting the Axe from Your Healthcare Job

7. Go the Extra Mile for Your Patients

We all know that patient ratios today are through the roof. With an increased demand for healthcare professionals comes higher patio-provider ratios. This can lead to frustration and contempt, and that can lead to the axe. Even if you don’t spend hours with each individual patient, making the effort to get to know him/her and his/her family can make all the difference for the patient and your career. Simple things like remember names and a unique fact or two is a great start. You may be seeing dozens of faces a day, but if you remember a patient and they remember you, it can be your lucky day. In the age of websites that rate and rank healthcare professionals, it’s best to have 5 stars next to your name.
