Training keeps eyes on safety
Fort Scott Presbyterian Village Dietary Director Joyce Ngatia, known to most as Joy, completed a 5-week virtual training, COVID-19 Safety for Certified Nursing Assistants. The training series is designed specifically for teams of CNAs. In the course, Joy gained the knowledge and skills necessary to protect herself and others from the dangers presented by COVID-19 by learning to identify, prevent, reduce and eliminate potential hazards. It also provided her with the confidence to advocate for safety.
Joy’s instructor Stephanie Gfeller, director of special projects at LeadingAge Kansas, told Joy, “You should be commended for making the commitment to this training series. It isn’t easy to take time for training like this, but you did it!”
Joy has been the director of dining services and a CNA at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village for 10 years. Let us all congratulate Joy on the completion of this big accomplishment.
