1 Employability Skills

2 In order to “keep the job” you need to have a good work ethic or employability skills.

3 Report to Work on Time and When Scheduled
Late or absent healthcare workers can negatively affect patient care. Most employers consider attendance to be VERY important!

4 Be Prepared to Work When You Arrive at Work
Follow the rules and policies of your facility. Give the employer a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay. Have you ever seen an employee abuse their work situation? How? ? Teacher Notes: This slide is asking students to share examples of employees who are not doing the work they are paid to do. Examples might include: Socializing Making personal calls Talking about personal or family problems Bringing their children to work Shopping on the Internet Playing games on the computer Doing sloppy work

5 Practice Teamwork Healthcare involves a “team” of different professionals. Teacher Notes; Students should be able to identify a number of different health professions involved in the victim’s care, both in first response and transport (EMS, dispatcher, etc.) to the Emergency Room. Students should also be able to suggest reasons for teamwork, beginning with the fact that is takes two people to lift the stretcher into the ambulance.

6 Promote a Positive Attitude and Energy
Focus on the positive parts of your job. Your attitude is contagious - it affects your co- workers. Positive energy means you are alert, focused, and figuring out how to make things work. Have you ever worked with someone who has “negative energy?” What was that like?

7 Accept Responsibility for Your Actions
Take credit for the good things you do. Take responsibility for your mistakes. In healthcare, report your mistake to your supervisor. Make an effort to correct your error, and to prevent it from happening again. I forgot to check my schedule. I’m very sorry. I’ll be happy to come in an make up the time I missed.

Caring about your patients is as important as caring for your patients.

Gather the facts before you come to a decision. Don’t jump to conclusions. Don’t react – THINK! Healthcare professionals use good judgment when processing information.
