EMS is pleased to share that our Corporate Training Department has completed AHE’s Certified Healthcare Environmental Services Technician Training Program (T-CHEST) and are now offering CHEST Certification to our employees. We are excited to be on the forefront of this new program – initially rolled out in 2015. EMS continues to accelerate this program by training our managers and staff working directly with healthcare facilities.
The CHEST Program was established using a comprehensive nationwide job analysis of a healthcare environmental services technician’s responsibilities and defined focus groups. The program covers all aspects of a frontline worker’s typical tasks and accountabilities. The standard Train-the-Trainer (TTT) model is employed to maximize value at each facility – T-CHEST then train their environmental services technicians and deliver the written assessment.
Addressing the “Triple-Aim” in Healthcare:
– Improving Patient Experience of Care
– Improving Health of Populations (Reducing HAIs)
– Reducing Per Capita Cost of Health Care
