The week of October 24-30 is Respiratory Care Week. We wil have some CEUs available as always.
The Supervisors should be placing their lists up with whose PFPs they are doing and what times are available.
Tobacco Free Not Just Smoke Free
The medical center does not have a smoke free policy; it has a tobacco free policy. The use of tobacco in any shape or form
is strictly prohibited. Thus, those of you that chew or use snuff are also prohibited from doing so on medical center Responsibilities
You have always been responsible for keeping tabs of your own deadlines and responsibilities but we have also keptan eye out, trying to help and remind team members of due dates. We have provided you with many ways to keepup with your certifications, call offs, etc.
Mike C has changed the current Due Dates link on the Resources Menu to a Deadlines menu link. You will need tocheck this link at least once a week which should not be too bad as you are supposed to be checking the homepage a couple of times a week anyway. You can also check your TM Signoffs link located right under the Deadlines link. Allyou have to do is enter your employee number and you can see the all the sign offs we have for you for that givenyear. Also from TM Signoffs you can go directly to something you have forgotten to signoff.
