NEW REGULATIONS GIVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT AT CALLAWAY GOOD LIFE CENTER All skills and abilities are needed including food service, housekeeping, and other licensed positions. If you are in need of employment, there is a need for you here at Callaway Good Life Center. Even Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) and Medication Aids (MA’s) can be hired and receive on the job training right away, according to the statement below. Please contact Vicky Hendricks, Administrator to learn more! Temporary CNA and Medication Aide Options With Guidance from Dan Taylor, DHHS Program Manager CMS has relaxed some of their requirements related to CNA testing and the 120 period for testing. In conjunction with that, Governor Ricketts, through his Executive Order (EO 20-12) suspended some of the rules for Nurse Aide training. Facilities can now train temporary Nurse Aides. These do not have to be people already working in a different capacity in your facility. These can be new employees. They must be trained and demonstrate competency of duties. This training can be done by a licensed healthcare provider working within the scope of his/her license. The individual being trained must demonstrate training in the core competencies. The training can be done in-house and the curriculum does not need to be approved. Training documentation, including a sign-off on each competency demonstrated, should be maintained by the facility. Nurse Aides can also be trained to provide assistance with non-complex feeding. Facilities can now train non-40 hour Medication Aides. Under the same state Executive Order mentioned above, for this period of time NF and AL do not have to have 40-hour MAs. The MA still has to be trained and be on the registry, but is not required to meet the 40 hour criteria.
Congratulations to our March Employee of the Month, Halla Eggleton. Halla is our Certified Dietary Manager. She began her career as a Dietary Cook and Aide and took the training to become the CDM. Halla was part of the transition from Good Samaritan to Callaway Good Life. Halla loves to read and watch hockey and soccer. She is an avid sports fan and loves to watch her kids play sports. She is also a wonderful cupcake decorator. She has been married to husband Jeff for almost 16 years. They have a 15 year old son, Elijah, and an almost 13 year old daughter Bryn. Halla’s co-workers nominated her and said, “Halla has put many extra hours in filling in for her staff. She also calls in to make sure that the Residents get the meals they want and deserve. Thank you Halla for all you do. We asked Halla why she enjoys doing what she does, and she had this to say, “I love visiting with the residents. They have interesting stories and they love to visit. I enjoy looking and learning new things to cook. I like to let my creative side out while decorating cakes. Halla’s creativity is enjoyed through the special treats she makes for our residents and for the staff during our All Staff Meetings! Thanks!
Each of our residents received a lovely bouquet of flowers from the Callaway District Hospital yesterday! Here are just a few of their happy faces! What a wonderful expression of compassion from our Hospital friends…Thank for your thoughtfulness!
