  • Complete the new daily screening for the chance to win

    November 22nd, 2022 // Coronavirus, News to Use

    For the past two years, Saint Agnes has been using Certify.me for colleagues to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms at the start of their shift. Self-screening prior to coming to work is important to colleague and patient safety and is a regulatory requirement, but beginning Dec. 31, 2022, the process will be even easier. No longer will you receive a daily text or email with COVID symptom questions, and the temperature scanners stationed throughout our facilities will soon disappear. Complete the new Entrance Screening course on HealthStream by Dec. 31 for the chance to win a pair of Apple Airpods!
