Quality of training as important as quality of care

Hudson Valley Business Journal;5/16/2005, Vol. 16 Issue 10, p17
The article reports that A&T Healthcare, one of Rockland County's largest employers, has trained more than 5,000 home health aides since 1986 and works with many hospitals, insurance companies and Medicaid to keep patients home. Its motto is "Home Healthcare with Dignity." One of the reasons for its training success is that they walk the professional through the process from the beginning. It all starts with a training that is approved by the Department of Health. A home health aide is provided training at one of its sites. Once the aide is trained, certified and evaluated by a nurse, she or he will be assigned to a nurse supervisor. The supervisor provides an orientation and then works with the aide at the home. This is ongoing to make sure training and information remain up-to-date.
