Education

The Medi-Sota Education program offers a variety of workshops pertaining to healthcare including Acute Care, Long Term Care, Management, Business Office, Compliance, and other Ancillary Departments.  Most workshops are available at no cost or a reduced rate to members.  A library of training videos is also available to Members Only at no charge. 

Because Medi-Sota covers a wide region of MN, we also offer several workshops by videoconferencing so members do not have to travel long distances and can remain on site for their training.  Visit the Medi-Sota Education page to review a list of upcoming workshops.

Mentor Health

DESCRIPTION: S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for Sugar, Temperature, Artificial Breathing, Blood Pressure,Lab Work, and Emotional Support. All hospitals providing labor and delivery services need tobe prepared for when a newborn becomes sick and requires transport. Before arrival of the transport team, community hospital caregivers should anticipate, promptly recognize, and effectively correct problems as they arise. The goal of all transport teams is to move with a well-stabilized infant, which helps minimize the chance that adverse events occur that may contribute to morbidity or lead to mortality. This program is designed to help community hospital caregivers organize care during the pre-transport stabilization period.There are numerous instructional materials and resources available for specific problem management, many of which will be included in the manual. This program is not intended to re-create instructional materials but to augment nursery education programs and serve as a straight forward and comprehensive guide for stabilizing a sick infant for transport.Objectives:*Identify neonatal risk factors, symptoms, and treatment for hypoglycemia*State the detrimental effects of hypothermia*Describe basic education of neonatal respiratory distress*Identify types and signs of shock in sepsis*Describe the clinical signs of sepsis*Describe ways hospital caregivers can support parents of sick newbornsWHO SHOULD ATTEND:This workshop is for physicians, nurse midwives, RN’s, LPN’s, Respiratory Therapists, EMT’s, and Paramedics.Presenters: Minnesota Children’s Hospital Staff   Redwood Area Hospital, 100 Fallwood Road, Redwood Falls, MNPlease park along Gould Street and come in the doors located back there.
