All Caregivers to Complete the Ebola Training Module by Oct. 31
Published October 27, 2014
You can never be too prepared for something in the health care industry. Although we don't anticipate Ebola coming to the Northwest corner of Washington, all caregivers are expected to complete an Ebola Training Module by Oct. 31. This training has been assigned to every caregiver at Providence whether you deliver direct clinical care or work in a support role. It takes 10 minutes to complete and is due by Oct. 31. It can be found on our HealthStream training website.
Additionally, mandatory training will be available for those of you who work in patient-care areas. The training will cover what you specifically need to know about Ebola and personal protective equipment (PPE). We know there are a lot of resources already in place, but this online training will provide additional support and reflect changes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is currently making to PPE guidance.
Also to support you in your preparedness, we have pulled together all of our resources onto a comprehensive Ebola resources intranet site.
This is one of those times that our communities, and the country for that matter, are counting on us to rise to the occasion and do what we do best: deliver safe, high-quality health care and serve those in need even in challenging circumstances. Thank you to everyone at Providence for helping us to be ready to respond to the medical needs of our time and serve as a trusted resource and a beacon of compassion for our communities.
