Teammate Behaviors

Wayne UNC Health Care behavioral standards guide the day-to-day decisions, actions, and relationships of our employees. Take care to follow the behavioral expectations during interactions with patients, medical staff, guests, and each other.

Positive Impression

  • I will greet everyone with a smile, making eye contact, introducing myself by name and title, and addressing them by their last or preferred name.
  • I will offer assistance to guests, escort them to their destination or hand off to someone who can.
  • I will speak positively about the organization and individuals, and professionally represent the organization in all actions and interactions.
  • I will provide positive, professional, and prompt responses and ensure my facial expressions and tone of voice is consistent with my words.
  • I will project a positive attitude and ensure that my work-related or personal challenges are kept separate from my patient care and professional activities.

  • I will recognize, respect and respond to the diversity of individuals and I will protect their dignity.

Effective Communication
