For most working adults, days are filled with task after task and deadline after deadline. This is especially true in healthcare, as you have to do all your work while also considering the needs of those in your care. Chances are you have more things you want to do than you have time to do them. You can’t create more time, but you can do a better job of deciding where to spend your time. One way busy professionals get more done is by appropriately delegating some of their work to others. This course discusses how to better manage time through delegation and how to properly delegate tasks to others.

Workers who use alcohol and drugs on the job, or come to work while under the influence of either, pose significant risks to the safety, productivity, and profitability of a company. Companies that adopt and enforce a drug-free workplace policy and program can mitigate many of these risks and will have healthier, happier workers.

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). This course provides an overview of the Ebola virus as well as information about the current outbreak and current approaches to treatment.

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 in the event of a fire emergency.

Many accidents and injuries can occur in the workplace. Having a workplace first-aid program 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 first-aid and emergency response; rather it is intended to provide refresher training to workers who have already attended an initial first-aid training program.
