Evaluations & Training

Training & Evaluations

All caregivers employed by Samaritan will satisfactorily complete a caregiver training program and/or competency evaluation program prior to performing patient care.  Caregivers are selected on the basis of such factors as a caring attitude, the ability to write, read and carry out directions, and the maturity and ability to deal effectively with the demands of the job.

All employees will have a performance appraisal/evaluation based upon their job description at least once every year, at or near the anniversary of their hire date.  In addition, there will be an ongoing informal performance review process through supervisory interaction, normally every 60 days in coordination with periodic client assessments, to ensure continued employee growth and development.

Regularly scheduled and appropriate in-service programs will be made available for all employees.  All employees must satisfactorily complete a minimum of twelve (12) hours of approved continuing education annually.
