    This is part two of a special three-part podcast series by Joe Gilboy PA-C on becoming a better PA.







    Part one was all about building better relationships with our nurses and ancillary staff.







    In part two we cover essential strategies on how to stay off the medical staff radar and get the medical staff, administrators, and supervisors on your side.

    Episode Transcript and Summary







    This episode was recorded by Joe Gilboy PA-C and edited for clarity and readability by Stephen Pasquini PA-C.







    Welcome, everybody. This is Joe Gilboy, and this is a podcast to have a series of three podcasts on how to become a better PA.







    Today, we’re going to talk about medical staff, our administrators, and our supervisors, whether a nursing supervisor, PA supervisor, or possibly physician supervisor.







    What I will be teaching you here in this podcast is how to interact with them and how to deal with them. And most importantly, how to have you make a better reputation for yourself and how to make you a better PA.







    * First, we’re going to talk about the medical staff, which is a big group of people. * Second, we need to learn how to deal with administrators. These can also be the office managers at the clinics where you work.* And then your supervisors, these are the people above you, whether a nurse, a PA, or a doc.* Lastly, we will covering how to deal with (or leave) a toxic job







    So, let’s talk about all these three people we’re going to have to interact with.







    How to be a Better PA with Medical Staff















    Let me explain who medical staff really are, not whom you think there are, but I’m going to show you who they really are.







    I’ve been a physician assistant in the emergency room for 35 years. You would think that after 35 years, I’ve developed some tough skin. But there’s one group of people that I fear the most, and you will begin to fear them as well. Who are they? The medical staff!







    Everybody has a boss. For example, you have a boss, and your boss has a boss, they have a boss, everybody has a boss. But there’s one person who’s at the very top of this pyramid. That’s medical staff.







    So, when medical staff asked for something, when do you get it done? Now? Yes, right now, like yesterday was too late.







    So, the medical staff has asked for your ACLs card, PALS card, NCCPA card, or DEA number. They want a TB test, a flu shot,

    Podcast Episode 86 – How to Be a Better PA Part 1: Nurses, Lab Techs, and X-Ray Technicians

    Podcast Episode 86 – How to Be a Better PA Part 1: Nurses, Lab Techs, and X-Ray Technicians

    This is part one of a special three-part podcast series by Joe Gilboy PA-C on becoming a better PA.







    Part one is all about building amazing relationships with our nurses and ancillary staff.







    You may be thinking to yourself, “Hey Stephen, I thought this podcast was about the PANCE and PANRE.” “How does talking about nurses and ancillary make me a better PA or help me pass my boards?”







    If you asked this question, then you have come to the right place.







    Because as anybody who has ever worked as part of a healthcare team can tell you, the key to your success as a PA has little to do with you and a lot more to do with how you treat other people.







    So how do you become a better PA?







    Let’s jump right into this unique episode of The Audio PANCE and PANRE Podcast. You can listen to the podcast below and read the summarized (and edited version) of the transcript or listen in your podcast player of choice.







    The Audio PANE/PANRE Podcast Episode 86: How to be a Better PA (Part 1 of 3)











    You can also click here to listen to or download this episode.







    Episode Transcript and Summary







    This episode was recorded by Joe Gilboy PA-C and edited for clarity and readability by Stephen Pasquini PA-C.







    I’ve been a PA in the emergency department for 35 years. And you can imagine, I’ve had a lot of interaction with nurses and ancillary staff. I want to pass on some wisdom and guidelines to help you deal with the nurses and ancillary staff.







    This will help you become the best PA you can become and help you immensely in your career and, most importantly, with your reputation.







    Become Best Friends with the Nurses















    The first group of people we’re going to talk about is the nurses. And this is a big one, folks, my God, how big is this!







    So, to all my new graduates out there, I really need you to listen to me, stop what you’re doing, and let this bounce around in your head for a second. As a new graduate, your nurses will know more than you. That’s right, you heard me, they will know more than you.







    So, let’s say you’re working at an urgent care family practice clinic or working in a neurology clinic. There you are seeing your patients, and the nurse will know more than you on how this patient needs to be worked up, which labs or imaging tests to order, and what the doctor likes.







    So, what I always tell my new graduates to do, and what you need to do, is become best friends with the nurses because sometimes (a lot of times), they’re going to know more than you!







    As time goes on and as you become more experienced and more seasoned, yes, you will know more than the nurses, which is just a byproduct of time and experience. I can’t fast forward time, but I can tell you that the nurses will know more than you initially, so follow them.







    They’re going to point you in the right direction. They will say, “Hey, you know Dr. Smith likes it this way, or Dr. Jones likes it that way or,
