Healthcare is one of the more dangerous occupations, with over 77 fatalities and 800,000 injuries occurring each year. Along with training designed to protect healthcare workers from exposure to infectious diseases, there are many other types of Inservice Education training such as patient safety and hospital safety that must be routinely conducted to insure your healthcare workers are fully trained.
Overexertion injuries leading to back problems are very common in healthcare settings, with over 67,000 back injuries reported each year. Consequently, it is important that healthcare employees receive training on ergonomics and how to safely lift and move patients to prevent back injury. Other Inservice Education training requirements include the HIPAA regulations on patient confidentiality, hospital safety, fire prevention and evacuation, patient safety, hazard communications, fall prevention, and workplace violence.The Training Network categorizes safety training for healthcare workers by Infection Control and Inservice Education. These two categories generally mirror the departments responsible for training on different types of safety requirements. For example, Bloodborne Pathogen
video training is easily found under the Infection Control category and Right-to-Know is contained within Inservice Education, as is ergonomics, HIPAA, lifting, and general orientation.
The Training Network offers a large selection of Inservice Education videos that will give you the tools required to insure your employees are properly trained in all areas of hospital safety.
