Training Services


After finishing New York State approved didactic training in home health care are three new graduates with their instructor Siobhan Toomey,RN. 


 

Background

Second only to direct personal home care of patients is Kearney Home Care Services' serious involvement in the ongoing training of its Professional and Certified Staff members. Throughout the year, we offer training, re-training and updating courses, in our own state-of-the-art facilities, to every member of our inter-disciplinary professional health care team.

Foreign graduate nurses and nurse's aides receive transition training in a classroom setting, together with orientation to the home care module. They also complete the Standardized Assessment Methodology required by the New York State Department of Social Services for competence testing of qualified individuals.

Home Health Aide candidates undergo a rigorous two-week, 80-hour training course specially designed to be a professionally supervised clinical experience, part of which is in an actual patient setting. The faculty is composed of members of our inter-disciplinary professional health care team. Successful graduates become Certified Home Health Aides.
