Abstract

Ancillary staff can be used to offload nursing tasks and provide improved care to patients. A health unit coordinator role can handle such tasks as registration, notification of physicians, and patient transport. Physical therapists can evaluate orthopedic patients, assist patients in obtaining needed devices, and provide follow-up care. Phlebotomists can follow up on orders in addition to drawing blood.
