KSHE Update
President's Message
Where has the time gone? It seems as if I blinked and we are already more than halfway through the year! School is now out of session, which typically results in a reduction in patient visits. As the patient encounters subside, Clinical Staff have an opportunity to catch their breath and call in those lingering work orders and environmental safety needs. Slower clinical times also allow Facility Staff access to those patient care areas that have recently been occupied. Summer is a wonderful and busy time.
We're dedicated to providing you high quality healthcare linen solutions.

KSHE membership has long supported the concept of certifying contractors who wish to work in their Kentucky hospitals. The emphasis is on “Certification” because at the end of this 1-day program, there is a certification exam. Those who pass the exam will be designated “Certified Healthcare Contractor.” This certification will be valid for 3 years.

 Learn more about our certification programs or email info@kshe.org for further clarification.
