Flu Shots are Here!
Flu Shots are Here!

We have received our influenza vaccinations and it’s time to start immunizing our staff.  Remember that the influenza vaccination is mandatory for all Riverside Healthcare staff members.   This also includes Riverside employee and non-employed Physicians, Graduate Medical Education (GME) participants, students, faculty, Riverside contracted workers and vendors and our Volunteers.  

Please review the Influenza Vaccination Program policy.   This policy may be accessed on Policy Stat under Mandatory Influenza.  It is under the Risk Services/Employee Health Department.  You may also click here to view the policy. If you need to submit an exception, the form must be submitted to the Risk Mgmt/EH office by October 1st and will be reviewed per policy. These forms can be found on Policy Stat under forms.  Those meeting the criteria for exception must wear a mask, and orange badge at all times during the influenza season while at all Riverside Healthcare facilities and clinics.

Employees will need to receive the vaccination by November 1st (unless there is a vaccination availability issue).  Those not receiving the vaccination will be considered non-compliant and may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including, termination (see policy). This pertains to all medical staff as privileges may be suspended for non-compliance.

Remaining Flu Clinics will be on the following dates: 
October 25 - 10am-11:30am Risk Conference Room - Suite 504
October 26 - 2pm-3:30pm Risk Conference Room - Suite 504

Please note that the Risk Mgmt/Employee Health and REACH department will be relocated as of September 21st.  You can get to our new location by taking the B Elevators to the 5th floor. We are at the end of the physician hallway in Suite 504.

Don't forget...Employees can self-enter their flu shot under their REACH “Healthy Habits” to earn REACH points.
