1. What virtual hospital based system do you use? *We have transitioned into Microsoft 360, which has us holding meetings in TEAMS. 2. When you hold ongoing education sessions for staff (i.e. maybe a 60 min contact hour event that is voluntary to attend) are the staff paid to attend if they come in? *We have a policy that outlines how a staff can be paid for this. 3. What do you do for ongoing education for staff on a yearly basis? I have update classes for staff yearly but those were cancelled due to COVID-19 *Do you mean competencies? Ours are unit based. We trained superusers to have them check people off in downtime. Future classes will be held in TEAMS if we are unable to keep a safe distance
