JERICHO, N.Y., June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc.

"HCCS CARES" is a year long program that allows any healthcare administrator or staff member to register for the course at www.hccs.com/hccscares any time within the next 12 months and be provided with unlimited access through June 14, 2012 to the course.  Hospital personnel, first responders, ambulance service, critical care centers, emergency medical technicians (EMT), nurses, paramedics, physicians, EMS, police and fire departments can all participate in this potentially lifesaving training course.  Participants will receive a certificate upon completion.

"Recent national and worldwide events such as the devastating flooding and tornados in the southern U.S. and the catastrophic earthquake and subsequent nuclear plant meltdown in Japan have prompted us to offer this complimentary course.  Natural events like hurricanes and tornadoes are inevitable in certain communities.  We need to be ready for these events and for other potential threats and catastrophes.  'HCCS CARES' is our way of giving back to the community and helping our healthcare infrastructure prepare for what may come," says Ben Diamond, President of HCCS.

The Bioterrorism and Disaster Preparation course educates healthcare staff on various types of disasters and "the environment of care."  It also outlines accreditation requirements during disaster drills, the four phases of disaster management, and the roles and responsibilities of staff members.

HCCS online compliance training courses are in use at hundreds of healthcare institutions across the country to provide recurring compliance training for staff and administrators.  The courses are designed to change behavior and maintain compliance with changing and emerging regulations. The online courses are customizable, easy to understand and updated annually or more often as regulations require.  

"We can't prevent natural disasters, but preparing healthcare workers can lessen the suffering of the individuals involved.  Disasters put healthcare facilities under enormous stress and a well educated staff will save lives," says Mr. Diamond.

Participation is complimentary and there is no obligation. Participants may register at www.hccs.com/hccscares.
