Medication Administration Training Update:
The new training and testing process starts on April 18, 2023.
- Online Staff Medication training: A self-guided PowerPoint presentation pre-recording for the staff for medication training will be located on the CMHPSM website for staff to view at their convenience. In preparation for the self-guided PowerPoint presentation, staff will need the medication management manual, MAR documents, and the Controlled Med Count Sheet.
- In-person Staff Medication training: There will be offerings of in-person training that will review the PowerPoint and teach the materials. There is no testing at this training. Needed materials will be provided.
- All testing will be in person in a class format.

Recipient Rights Training Update:
The Rights Office will continue to use the following process for Recipient Rights Training until further notice:
- Washtenaw CMH canceled all in-person RR trainings for staff indefinitely.
- In the meantime, new staff will still be expected to complete/sign the “Day One” rights training within 30 days of hire (per usual).
- If, until the meeting rooms are reopened, staff are due (per contract requirements) to attend their in-person 90-day training, we will be allowing a temporary exception for them to utilize our region’s online training in lieu of the in-person training, link below:
- For all staff who are due for rights refresher training, we ask they meet this requirement via our online training. No further follow-up is required, as online refreshers are now allowable in our region.
Provider staff should connect with their site contact about any upcoming training needs or questions.

Recipient Rights Training
- Within 30 days of hire: All staff must be oriented to Recipient Rights using the paper curriculum titled “Day One Rights Orientation”. Although the staff has 30 days to complete this orientation, they cannot work alone with consumers until it’s completed. So it’s strongly suggested this becomes part of your first day of hire process (which is why it’s been renamed “Day One Orientation”). A signed and dated copy of the orientation should be printed and maintained in the staff’s record as proof of completion. A copy of the “Day One Orientation” can be located on the PIHP’s website at: https://www.cmhpsm.org/training.
- Within 90 days of hire: All staff must complete Rights training by a Rights Officer within 90 days of hire. Staff may also complete this by attending training at one of our affiliate CMHs or at another approved CMH (please contact ORR with questions).
Other Important Reminders:
- Annual Online Retraining: All staff must retake Rights training annually (per State requirements) via online/electronic training or in person. A copy of the online Recipient Rights quiz results should be printed and maintained in the staff’s record as proof of completion. NOTE: A staff may retake Rights training if required by the employer or the Rights Office, as a result of rights violations or other concerns. The Annual Recipient Rights Refresher Training can be located on the PIHP’s website at: https://www.cmhpsm.org/training.
- Tracking Compliance: Employers are responsible for tracking their staff’s initial Rights training and ensuring staff retake training every year. Additionally, employers are required to submit to Network Management, when requested, the name, date of hire, and date of completion of the “Day One Orientation” for all new hires. Employers should maintain clear and easily accessible records of all Rights training received by staff and provide it upon request.”
