  • Ebola Virus

    The current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has been connected to more than 4,000 deaths since the latest outbreak began late 2013 (Weintraub, 2014). The Ebola virus, formerly known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, is a rare disease caused by an infection from the Ebola virus strains. While rare, it is severe and often fatal in humans. Wild animals are believed to transmit the virus to people, and it spreads through the human population through close person-to-person contact (WHO, 2014).
  • Handling Aggressive Residents and Patients with Dementia

    Patient care often goes beyond general medical support.
  • Fire Safety in Long Term Care Facilities

    Fire safety in healthcare facilities like nursing homes, retirement homes, hospice, and eldercare facilities requires a special response by staff members that goes beyond what one expects in other organizations. This is because both patients and their families have placed a special trust in you to see to the safety of people who, in many cases, are not able to help themselves. The threat of fire is serious for any organization, but this is especially true in long-term healthcare facilities. This course discusses how fires are started and extinguished, fire prevention tactics, and how to act
  • Disaster Preparedness in Long Term Care Facilities

    Workplace emergencies are rather common. They range from small incidents, such as a fire alarm going off, to large events like hurricanes and snowstorms. In the long-term healthcare setting, staff members are responsible for more than just their own safety during an emergency. They must also see to the needs of patients and residents. In order to minimize injuries, save lives, and prevent facility damage, managers and staff members must be prepared to think clearly and take effective actions in a wide range of emergency situations.
  • Adult Ambulation and Mobility

    Many individuals who are in a hospital or at home following a prolonged illness or injury that impacts mobility become frustrated when they cannot move around as they desire. Mobility and ambulation are important to overall health and recovery from illness and injury.
  • Bullying in Healthcare

    Repeated and unwanted actions by an individual or group intended to intimidate, harass, degrade, or offend one or more persons is bullying. In organizations, bullying has a negative impact on the emotional health and well-being of employees and affects the performance of the entire organization. Bullying has become a serious and growing problem affecting a significant proportion of healthcare professionals compared to other industries.
  • Safe Lifting Practices

    Every year, many workers suffer back injuries caused when they improperly lift and carry heavy loads. This can affect most every worker in any industry, from an officer worker moving a box of copy paper to a carpenter constructing a building. This course discusses several tactics to help workers properly lift and carry heavy loads. 
  • CPR Refresher

    Many accidents and injuries can occur in the workplace. Having a workplace first-aid program that includes training workers on how to give Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) minimizes these risks by giving the injured or sick person some basic treatment until professional emergency medical service personnel can arrive. This course IS NOT designed to be a primary or introductory lesson on CPR; rather it is intended to provide refresher training to workers who have already attended a certified CPR training program.
