Overview of the History and Future of Long-Term Care

   The provision of residential services for the Aged as a governmental responsibility dates back
to pre-revolutionary times and was a project promoted by Benjamin Franklin. Since those early
days the proportion of elderly in the population has increased twenty-fold and the very nature
of what it means to be old has altered dramatically. Evolving family structures, lengthening life
expectancies, economic circumstances, service preferences, and the sheer costs of care have
thrown governmental policy makers into a quandary as to how to address the future needs of
elderly persons needing chronic care supports. It is important for practitioners in the field of
long-term care to have a historical understanding of the roots of the industry as well as the forces
driving future demands and pressures. While there is a growing need to provide long-term care
supports, simply doing more-of-the-same does not appear to be a viable option.

Prerequisite: CVT, RN, LPN, RRT with relevant clinical experiences in the adult/geriatric
population.
   This course will provide the learner with a detailed understanding of common diagnostic testing
procedures applicable to the adult/geriatric patient with cardiovascular compromise. Specific
topics covered are invasive and non-invasive diagnostic studies such as exercise/pharmacologic
tolerance testing, echocardiography, myocardial perfusion imaging, and serum studies to name
a few. Students who wish to participate in this session should be healthcare providers with a basic
understanding of cardiac A&P, as well as a working knowledge of common cardiac disease
processes.

population.
  This course will provide the learner with a review of pharmacotherapeutics utilized in the cardio-
vascular compromised patient. Major points discussed will be pharmacokinetics and
pharmicodynamics of cardiac medications. Specific drug classes such as anti-arrhythmics,
medications of blood pressure control (ACE-I, ARB, CCB, beta blockers, etc) cholesterol lowering
agents, and diuretics are a few examples of specific content of this learning opportunity.

                Polysomnography Training Program (Sleep Tech)
   The Polysomnography Training Program
trains students to work with physicians in
the performance of diagnostic sleep studies
that are required for the evaluation and
treatment of sleep disorders. Sleep record-
ings are made during the patient’s usual




                                                                                                     Healthcare Programs: Polysomnography Training Program (Sleep Tech)
sleep hours, so many techs work during the
evening and night. Often, the shift is 10-12
hours. This requires the ability to remain
awake, alert and maintain good interper-
sonal skills throughout the night as well as
the ability to get proper sleep during the
day. Sleep Technicians must possess good
problem solving skills and be able to work
well independently.
   This 80-hour program prepares students
to enter this field with introductory training
in the following areas: sleep technology,
basic anatomy and physiology as it relates
to sleep technology, sleep disorders and
sleep disordered breathing, sleep staging
and event scoring, sleep data collection and equipment, and the performance of PSG. The
HACC Polysomnography Training Program has been designated by the Board of Registered
Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) as an alternate educational pathway for purposes of
establishing Pathway 1 eligibility to sit for the RPSGT exam. The curriculum is not recognized
by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) for purposes of AASM facility accredi-
tation. The program is currently seeking ASTEP Introduction accreditation. Upon ASTEP
accreditation, this program along with the required work experience (up to 18 months), can prepare
the student for the registry exam offered by the BRPT.
  HACC strongly encourages all interested students to visit www.BRPT.org to review
    information about this career and to review requirements for registry exams.
   The cost of this program is $3,900 which includes all textbooks. This does not include the
cost of any prerequisites needed. Classes are held at 3 Penn Center, Harrisburg. The class meets
for full days on Saturdays for a 10-week period (80 hours). Lunch and break are included. The
class consists of lecture, demonstrations, and clinical experience. Tests will be presented weekly
throughout the course. Attendance at all classes is mandatory.
   Prerequisites: Students interested in this program must have previous healthcare experience,
be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED, and be familiar with Window
based software. Required healthcare experience is explained in detail in the Admission Criteria
for the program. Otherwise, prerequisite classes will be required. A minimum of 10 hours of shad-
owing experience in a sleep lab and completed application are required.
 Spring class dates will be announced once the ASTEP accreditation is awarded to
   HACC. Interested students can still apply at any time and will be informed of
                        class dates when they are scheduled.
 Detailed admission criteria and program information can be found on our website
   www.hacc.edu, under Health Careers. For questions or an application packet,

Healthcare/Nurse Aide Training Calendar • January – June 2010                                       25
                                                             Nurse Aide Training Program

                                   What is a Nurse Aide?
                                      A Nurse Aide or Nursing Assistant is a very caring person who sees the purpose in
                                   his/her life as giving care and assistance to patients/residents so they may be comfort-
                                   able, safe, and in the best state of wellness they can be. These Aides always work under
                                   the supervision of a licensed nurse. The focus of the program is on long term care facil-
                                   ities although Nurse Aides can be employed in hospital or other healthcare settings.
                                      Some of the basic tasks they perform are:
                                                  • taking and recording vital signs
                                                  • bathing the patient; exercising with the patient/resident
                                                  • changing the patient’s bed linens
                                                  • helping with teeth brushing, nail care, hair care
                                                  • help with feeding when necessary

                                                  • keeping the patient/resident’s room safe and tidy
                                     Aside from these tasks, the one fulfilling opportunity an Aide will always have is talking
                                   to and listening to the patient/resident. These people are often sick, scared, in pain,
                                   confused, sad, lonely, and experiencing very stressful situations. Pills and doctors do not
                                   always cure all ills. A listening ear and a hand to hold can often make a world of differ-
                                   ence in someone’s day and life!

                                               you must obtain an FBI report in addition to the Pennsylvania State Police background

Our Challenge
The Shumaker Public Safety Center has rarely seen a break in activity since it was built more than 20 years
ago. Naturally, the building and training grounds are showing their age and limitations.
The Public Safety Center Master Plan recently identified four distinct phases of expansion that extend
over a 20-year period. The first phase, to be completed by December, 2011, focuses on remedies to targeted
areas in need of the most immediate attention.
Phase I of the project includes:
• Renovation of the six-story fire training tower, smoke structure, and burn building to meet and exceed safety
  standards and provide additional training access for municipalities and expansion of services for rescue
  programs.
• Additional training sites for Hazmat (hazardous materials), vehicle extrication, confined space and trench
  rescue, and flammable liquids training.
• Construction of a LEED®    -certified Law Enforcement Complex to include an indoor firing range.
                      Your investment in the Public Safety Center Partners program will have
