|Training - Certification: Renewal Process|
Certification renewal is seen as an important element in providing quality assurance within a healthcare institution and protecting both the officer and institution in case of litigation. While there are a number of processes that have remained relatively constant over the years, there are many others that have changed in response to regulatory or technology advancements.
If challenged in a court during a negligence or liability lawsuit, an attorney could easily convince a jury that any certification not maintained may not meet current standards. A healthcare institution would be remiss if it did not consider protecting itself and its employees in such a high profile area as security through periodic renewals.
Do I have any other choice but to renew at the same level?
