Department Highlight

Community Care - Pocatello
www.idahocommunitycare.com

Last month Pocatello Community Care celebrated their 10 Year Anniversary in quite a style! Before we get to that though, just think, 10 years ago the first iPhone came out and flip phones started to hit the road, Myspace was just losing its clout to Facebook, Iron Man 1 – the first movie Marvel Studios produced – was released, and Britany Spears just started growing her hair back! A lot has happened in 10 years but Pocatello Community Care has weathered it all.

In August Pocatello Community Care celebrated by giving thanks to the community through some prizes and giveaways. Sports Physicals were offered to the community for free along with a raffle every week that included prizes such a giant t-rex red, a backpack full of goodies, and a Ninja Vitamin Blender. The raffles were done on Facebook live and Pocatello Community Care was able to give thanks to those who have supported them these past 10 years and get some attention from new people. Along with the prizes and giveaways, they decked out their lawn with hundreds of red pinwheels to capture the community’s attention.

Awesome Job Community Care! We can wait to see what you’ll do for the 10-year anniversary!

News From Pharmacy


News From Teton Grill and Mountain View Café

We haven't updated our prices in a while and found that we needed to make some changes to bring prices in line with our actual costs.
You will find that some items are priced the same, but others have either gone up or come down in price.
All items will be clearly marked for your convenience. We will also update the Grill Menu located on the intranet to indicate all updated prices.


Thank you

News About PolicyStat

The Mountain View Hospital Policy Manual is available electronically through the intranet home page. Each policy has been developed to ensure that MVH performs to the highest standards of service and healthcare, therefore it is essential that these guidelines are communicated throughout the organization. MVH employees will be assigned policies through the PolicyStat program where they will be required to read and acknowledge understanding of each allocated policy and its progressive updates.

To locate what policies are assigned to you:
1. Log into the "PolicyStat (Policy & Procedures Manual)" on the MVH intranet home page.
(An email notification will be sent from the program once the assignment has been made, you can follow that link.)

2. Refer to the "Home" tab and scroll down to the "Policies Awaiting Acknowledgment" section.

3. Click on the header to access your assigned policy documents.  Open each policy*, read through it and click the blue button on the bottom  I have read and understood this policy.

*If there are questions regarding information contained in any policy, please direct them first to your manager, then to the policy’s owner.
