Healthcare Environments: for Office and Maintenance Personnel

Without support staff to take care of non-medical tasks, medical personnel would be unable to give their patients the time and attention that they need

When we think of people who have jobs in a healthcare environment, we usually think of doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants, and other medical professionals. But these aren’t the only people who work in healthcare facilities. Custodians, food service workers, administrators and many other people are just as important to a healthcare facility as medical professionals. These workers are also exposed to the hazards that can make working in a healthcare environment dangerous.

The Healthcare courses for Office and Maintenance Personnel provide crucial information about how they can recognize and protect themselves from these hazards, the government regulations that they must comply with to make their facility a safer place, and how to work well together.

The courses are divided into a number of logical sections, each with its own quiz, so information is easily understood. The interactive formats allow trainers to collect employee performance information which can be organized through a powerful relational database and provides recordkeeping and tracking report capabilities.

The DVD programs contain a Presenter’s Guide, Employee Quizzes, Scheduling and Attendance Forms, and Training Certificates.

Languages: Programs are available in English and Spanish.

Formats: Web-based E-learning / DVD / Micro Learning (3-5 minute courses) / Adaptive-Learning
