We’re back with October Training Tips from the Training and Development department!
Keeping your skills sharp when working in a health clinic is of utmost importance for several reasons. Firstly, the healthcare industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies, treatments, and research emerging regularly. By keeping your skills up-to-date and sharp, you can stay ahead of these changes, ensuring that you provide the best possible care to your patients. Moreover, with the high stakes involved in healthcare, the lives and well-being of patients depend on the expertise and abilities of healthcare professionals. Regularly honing your skills ensures that you can identify and react to critical situations promptly and effectively, minimizing the risk of errors and maximizing patient outcomes. Additionally, staying on top of your skills and knowledge enhances your professional reputation and builds trust among your colleagues and patients. Finally, continual skill development also opens professional growth and advancement opportunities within the clinic and the broader healthcare field. Overall, keeping your skills sharp is crucial for providing the highest standard of care, ensuring patient safety, and fostering your own professional growth in a health clinic.
Let’s learn October’s Training Tips!
VERIFY SELF-PAY BOX IS CHECKED CORRECTLY!
The self-pay box should only be checked when a patient is a true SELF-PAY/FULL FEE Patient or on one of our Healthpoint programs. This box should never be checked if a patient has private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, or HTW.
Height and weight should be checked at every in-person clinical visit. This is for Adults and Pediatric patients.
Clinical team, if you do not have an Immtrac log-on, please reach out to your home site vaccine coordinator or Ruth to get one set up. All pediatric immunizations given at other facilities must be entered into ECW to be compliant with state regulations.
The “CTR+” Entered after an ImmTrac number in the patient’s pink sticky note means the” Consent to Report” button has been checked. This is essential under state regulation so that all vaccines given to a child are electronically entered into ImmTrac. If the CTR+ is not listed and the patient has an Immtrac account, you will need to go to the patient’s Info tab – Additional Info and verify the button is selected. After this, you may add the CTR+ to the sticky note.
Outstanding labs must be checked daily!
