FOOD DRIVE TO MEET COMMUNITY NEEDS

This week, Michigan Medicine is launching a second food and toiletry drive to help meet unprecedented community needs due to COVID-19 during a time of economic disruption for many. All members of the Michigan Medicine community can help us in this partnership with Food Gatherers to provide healthy foods and basic supplies to more than 170 community organizations. Forty percent of those seeking help in recent months have been doing so for the first time.

Full details about this Michigan Medicine community health initiative and in-person giving are available at  http://michmed.org/fooddrive, and online giving is easy atwww.foodgatherers.org/UM. Thank you in advance for generosity and support during this time of need.

TAKE HIGH RELIABILITY TRAINING IN MLEARNING BY NOV. 30

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.

GET YOUR FLU VACCINE BY DEC. 1

With flu season approaching, once again Michigan Medicine is committed to providing the safest possible environment for patients, families, employees and visitors.

Under the organization’s influenza vaccination policy, faculty, staff, students and volunteers must receive their annual vaccine by Dec. 1, 2020 or receive an approved exemption or declination. This includes all employees who may be working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those with an approved exemption or declination will be required to wear a mask in patient care areas for the entire flu season, even if COVID-19 mask requirements are lifted.
