Understanding Hospital Compliance with the Health Care Worker Background Check Act: March 15

As part of the state’s Health Care Worker Background Check Act, hospitals must submit information on prospective employees who meet certain criteria to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) for a background check. There are frequent and growing misperceptions on what the Health Care Worker Registry is and which prospective hospital employees need to be submitted for a background check. Join IHA and representatives from IDPH for a webinar to discuss the Health Care Worker Registry, the types of individuals who need to be reported and the hospital’s role in the process.

Active Threats: How to Prepare Your Hospital: Feb. 21

Active threat tragedies continue to plague hospitals. Currently, most of the attention and efforts are directed toward stopping an active threat during an attack and responding to its aftermath. Yet, it is critical to step back and try to determine what caused the incident.

Because an active threat scenario goes beyond "Run, Hide, Fight," this workshop will provide you with preventative plans and guide you in designing response mechanisms to pre-empt an attack. This workshop—an enhanced version of our Aug. 23, 2017 program—will address a team-based approach that focuses on prevention.
