Bayhealth Observation & Process
12/29/2014 1:18:34 PM

Hello All

I wanted to reach out to all of you in regards to the clearance process for externship with Bayhealth. With new faces brings new changes. I am trying to streamline the clearance process for all of us that are involved. It seems as though some are having a hard time understanding the requirements; Because of this, we have altered the wording and changed the requirements to be better understood.   If any of you have any questions please feel free to contact myself either by phone (302) 744-6722 or email Andrea_McNatt@bayhealth.org. I am hoping this will be helpful to some if not all of you. You can also locate this information at http://www.bayhealth.org/BayhealthContentPage.aspx?nd=838

Bayhealth’s IV Pump Policy has now been updated to include faculty as an approved party for use of the IV pumps at Bayhealth. However, use of the IV pumps at Bayhealth by faculty is only to occur after a formal training and skills validation have been complete per the policy revisions. In anticipation of the need for training, a survey was recently sent out to all nursing faculty for which we had an email address. Based on the results of this survey, training for faculty will take place in session format during the second week of January at Bayhealth’s Education Department- 208 West Water Street, Dover DE 19901.

Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative
3/4/2014 2:17:59 PM

  

The World Health Organization/UNICEF Baby-Friendly® Hospital Initiative (BFHI)

 

 

Bayhealth is working towards designation as a Baby Friendly Hospital. The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) was launched by WHO and UNICEF as a global effort to implement practices that protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
 The guidelines for reaching this achievement include educating clinical nursing instructors or educators. Clinical educators, staff nurses, and physicians can complete the training for free by visiting Wellstart Internationalwww.wellstart.org.
At this time, it is optional for clinical instructors on critical care, med/surg, or emergency services units. However, Maternal/Child clinical instructors must show they have current, research based knowledge in the area and the 3 hour course provided by Wellstart International meets the criteria needed. If an instructor has completed the education for another Baby-Friendly Hospital, they do not need to redo the course. The instructor only needs to provide a copy of their certificate of completion.
Certificates of completion must be sent to CeAnn Williams at Bayhealth’s Education Department (640 S. State St. Dover, DE 19901). Certificates of completion can also be sent via fax (302-730-3047) or email (CeAnn_Williams@bayhealth.org).
Please feel free to contact CeAnn Williams at 302-744-6722 if you have any questions. Thank you for supporting Bayhealth in this initiative.
