New Clinical Orientation Class Implemented

A new orientation class recently was implemented for the University of South Alabama Health Services Foundation (USAHSF) non-physician employees who function in a clinical capacity.
According to Sherryle Givens, manager of quality improvement for USAHSF the class was an improvement effort undertaken by clinical operations managers. “The orientation ensures that all staff receive the same information aimed at protecting patient and personal safety during provision of health care,” Givens said. “Quality and safety are core values to our organization, and the class helps support that.  Formalizing these classes also allows us to track completion for all employees.”

Clinical orientation classes are held on the first and third Mondays of each month.  New employees must complete the orientation within the first month of hire; clinical employees hired prior to July 1, 2015, are required to attend a session by Oct. 1, 2015.

The next orientation session will be held Monday, July 6, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Moorer Clinical Sciences Building Training Room behind USA Medical Center. Managers can register their staff by calling Elizabeth Will at (251) 471-7836 or by emailing hsf-Compliance@health.southalabama.edu.
