Nursing Team Roles:
As discharge needs are assessed, it is recognized that many of the patients require support from community services such as public health nursing, visiting nurse services, or assistance with housekeeping and meal preparation. The nursing staff work with support staff (dietitian, physical therapist, clinical nurse specialist, nursing education specialist, and social services staff) to develop a plan of care that meets the needs of the patients and their significant others.

The Health Unit Coordinator (HUC) provides organizational, receptionist, and clerical support to patient care units and the health care team. These duties include monitoring and ordering supplies, and may also include transcribing orders to patient electronic medical record and other communication devices. The HUC communicates effectively via a variety of modalities with patients, visitors, and facility staff and plays an integral role in communication across the continuum of care. The HUC functions as a resource to members of the health care team and is familiar with multiple Mayo Clinic resources. The HUC activities complement the patient care delivery model. The HUC carries out all aspects of the job using good judgment and problem-solving skills, strong interpersonal skills, and assumes responsibility for self-development within the role and participates in continuous improvement activities. The HUC supports the healthcare team by anticipating and responding to team requests and patient needs.
