Some Michigan Medicine employees may have been tested outside our system.

MICHIGAN COVID-19 UPDATE

As of Monday, Aug. 17, the state of Michigan has reported 93,185 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 6,325 deaths. Over 2.6 million laboratory diagnostic and serologic tests have been conducted. Wayne, Detroit, Macomb and Oakland counties report the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 across the state.

In your communities and on the Michigan Medicine campus, please continue to practice the habits that reduce the spread of COVID-19: properly wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and frequent handwashing. Take pride in the power of prevention and keeping our communities safe.

HIGH RELIABILITY TRAINING NOW AVAILABLE IN MLEARNING

After canceling in-person high reliability universal skills classes due to COVID-19, the curriculum has been modified to an eLearning series now available in MLearning. At this time, there are no in-person or virtual classes available.

This online eLearning series should be completed by all faculty and staff who are assigned SAFE-C90239 in MLearning, and did not complete an in-person course prior to March 12, 2020. Here are a few key points about the new eLearning series:

·       If you are required to complete HRO Universal Skills, you will be assigned the SAFE-C90239 “certification” in your MLearning learning plan.

o   NOTE: If you already completed the in-person version of HRO Universal Skills, you do NOT need to complete this eLearning series.

·       The series consists of eight (8) individual eLearning units that you should complete in sequence.  Progress is saved, so the certification can be done over time.

·       The deadline for completion is November 30, 2020.

An FAQ with more information can be found here. Please reach out to HRO-Training@med.umich.edu with any clarifying questions.
