HCAF Members: Test Your Home Health Aides on Safety

As a benefit of membership, HCAF provides agencies with In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care, a monthly publication that addresses relevant topics for home health aides. Topics addressed in In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care have included stress and burnout, nutrition and food safety, professional boundaries, ulcers and more.

The December 2011 edition addresses safety, about which aides will learn the following:

  • Home care safety tips for the home care worker
  • Safety awareness in the home for the client and worker
  • Personal safety  tips for the home care worker

Each edition of In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care is packed with useful information on the month’s topic as well as a post-test (answer key included) for home health aides so they can earn one hour towards the 12 hours-per-year Medicare requirement!

The current edition and past editions can be accessed on HCAF’s In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care webpage, which is only accessible to HCAF members by clicking here.
