  • 1.  Trainings for Health Aides- in addition to DPI?

    Posted 10-19-2022 12:13
    Hello-
    I am just curious what other schools are doing or have done for Health Aide trainings? This is the first year I have had an official health aide/s.
    I had them complete much of the DPI material as well as keep the CPR/first aid certifications up to date.
    Is there anything else that may be helpful?
    Thank you,
    Tiffany

    Hi Tiffany,
    We do not have health assistants at this time and rely on our administrative assistants as part of our health services team.  We have an annual training with these folks and this is what we've included:
    -hands on skills sign off for using each kind of our thermometers
    -incident reports
    -covid protocols
    -confidentiality and need to know
    -diabetes basics and in depth as needed
    -seizure basics
    -documenting in blue or black ink/legal document
    -assuring incoming medication/procedure form is filled out correctly and med being left is not expired and matches order
    -medication policy and annual hands on skills sign off
    Let me know if you have questions.

    I train our health aides in the WISHES protocols and have an annual evaluation form that outlines job expectations.  We have beginning and end of the year checklists to help with workflow. Frequent reminders on confidentiality are also helpful.

    Let me know if I can be of further help!
