Healthcare workers of all skill levels are in high demand across the Middle East. Non-clinical personnel play a vital role in ensuring that the healthcare facilities remain in operation, 24 hours a day, 365 days a week. From front desk administrative staff, to accounting, house keeping, maintenance and security, for a large part, these are the people that manage the day-to-day operation of the facility, allowing the doctors and nurses to get on with their job of making patients better.
On the whole, people who like the social element about dealing with lots of people, often enjoy working in hospitals. With hundreds of patients coming in and out on a daily basis, each day brings new challenges. As the healthcare industry across the globe, and —particularly in emerging regions such as the Middle East, hospital jobs are relatively secure when compared to corporations, which may be more volatile at times.
These days, there is a lot more understanding how non-clinical staff are instrumental in contributing to the quality of patient care at a facility. Not only are they essential for the day-to-day functioning of the facility, but they also play a vital role in ensuring the safety of the patients while in the care of the particular facility. There are many specific ways in which workers — ranging from copy machine operators to IT technicians — could help improve patient care.
One such example is to encourage non-clinical staff to wash their hands every time before touching patients, or anything that patients may come in contact such as sinks, or they increase the risk for hospital-acquired infections. Inviting housekeepers to complete surveillance helps to enhance reliability of incident reporting and reduces the risk of cross contamination.
Other important contributions include ensuring nutritious food for patients, keeping the rooms clutter-free and accurate admitting information. Bringing clinical and non-clinical staff together fosters community and communication and encourages everyone to take responsibility.
