    Eric,

    Your Medtrainer rep may be able to answer those questions.  We do all of ours every year however we did set our program up differently in 2019.  There were mandatory trainings for everyone and some specific courses for clinical, clerical and managers.

    Hello,

     

    We have our staff take the following courses:

    Bloodborne Pathogens

    Fire Safety

    Hazardous Communication and Chemical Safety

    HIPAA

    Information Security and Awareness

    Preventing slips, trips, falls


    At the end of 2019, we implemented an online vendor Medtrainer for these courses and to track completion. I was hoping to open them up for 2020 immediately so staff can spread out over the year. Does anyone have any information on rules for timelines? For example, does 1X per year mean if they complete in November they cant complete another course until November 2020?

    Also, is anyone aware if these are always a 1 year frame or maybe 1 every 2?


    Eric,

    We offer those same types of courses yearly as well.  Not sure of possibility of only needing every two years.  I also don't know of any guidelines regarding timeline for completion.  All I can say is that ours are due every year on 12-15 and our Education Department has already assigned the courses due 12-15-2020.  That would lead me to believe that there is no rule over when the course can be completed as long as it is completed by the due date.  Just my thought.
