Recipient Rights Training Update: 

  • Washtenaw CMH will be canceling all in-person RR trainings for staff until at least 6/1/20, at which time this will be reassessed.
  • 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.
  • Once the community risk has subsided, we will reschedule the in-person trainings. At that time, we will require all new staff whose 90-day requirement was met via the online training, to attend an in-person training. As such, we will temporarily increase the number of trainings available to staff to accommodate the increased need.
  • Until the meeting rooms reopen, 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.
  • This is exception is TEMPORARY and will be discontinued as soon as safe to do so.

Recipient Rights Training Update

In light of the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Washtenaw County administration has canceled the use of all county meeting rooms until at least 4/7/20. This means that at Washtenaw CMH, we will be canceling all in person RR trainings until at least that time.

During this time, in lieu of the in-person training that new staff is required to attend within 90 days of hire, we will be allowing staff to utilize our online rights retraining. Additionally, we will be asking that ALL staff who are due for a rights retraining to utilize the online training instead of the in-person training. 

In summary: 

  • Continue the usual Day One training within 30 days of hire.
  • All ORR Refreshers must be taken on time and taken online.
  • If staff are due for their in-person 90-day training, we are allowing a temporary exception for them to use our region’s online training in lieu of the in-person training.

Medication Administration Refresher Class Update

Due to the County direction we received yesterday about meetings and meeting space, and as a means to take precautionary measures, we are cancelling the Medication Refresher classes on March 18th and 25th .

WCCMH will allow an extension on staff’s current certificate to get through the next few weeks. Our hope is to resume April classes as usual. Due to the current uncertainty of how long additional precautions must be implemented, we will assess what the needs will be before we approach April.

Requesting Assistance

As you know, we all serve people who are considered vulnerable and/or at risk. Washtenaw County and the provider network provide vital supports to these individuals, many of whom have no one else to turn to. WCCMH staff will continue to provide critical services to consumers while utilizing published precautions.

How Can You Help?

WCCMH anticipates that the agency, support staff and individuals served may be affected by the virus. Additionally, Washtenaw County is discouraging groups of 10 or more at this time. We also recognize that all of your agencies are experiencing the same concerns and challenges. Given this, in order to keep folks safe, we highly encourage families to take their loved ones home for the weeks that schools are closed (through April 6), if they are able to do so. This will hopefully help alleviate the spread of the COVID-19.

Although the County is asking for groups of 10 or more to not meet, we will continue to have vocational programming for a subset of individuals. We are asking that the following individuals refrain from coming to programming during this time: those living in specialized residential/licensed settings, those in family homes that have support during the day, those that are able to go home during this timeframe, and those that are sick or that have housemates that are sick.

We ask that you, in conjunction with our Clinical Teams, contact families and ask them if they can take their loved ones home for the next few weeks. Not only will this help reduce the spread of this virus but may help condense/combine staffing at the sites (since we anticipate all around staffing challenges).
