Paying attention is very much good. It helps to avoid much rework when using the best medical software, getting things done and also for better information. Proper documentation of a medical report of a patient made the patient feel at home and cared for.
Below are some perfect tactics which you can apply to pay better attention to your patient.
Silence your Device: The most distractive thing one can encounter when trying to concentrate is noise. Make sure all notification from any social media is turned off if possible your mobile phone should be in a silent mode to avoid mistakes and most times miscalculation.
Shut Down your Screen: leaving your laptop screen light on may seem less distractive, but in order to concentrate fully, then you have to shut it off totally! Turn your phone screen down on the table or better still put it right inside your pocket.
Focus Directly on the Patient Talking to You: getting to focus directly on someone or taking a direct look at the patient face is a very strong way to show your concern. This shows that you are not either glancing elsewhere or reading something. It also helps to build powerful communication.
Don’t Allow Interruptions: you might think that disturbance will take a couple of seconds, but then the person whom you were talking to will have just to sit awkwardly while you talk with someone else. No phone calls, avoid attending to other things while you have someone right in front of you.
Repeat What You Heard: you can understand but rehearse what you have been told without fright will immediately help to treat any problems you might be having.
Giving out your whole Attention.
When you are about to meet someone, first access and organize yourself, make sure you are very far from distractions then you will see that the person you are about to meet will not only love to talk to you again but will also love to work with you.
So, turn off that device, say no to those distractions, and give someone your attention today.
