Human Trafficking and Exploitation Training for Healthcare Workers

90% of trafficking victims come into contact with healthcare workers while they are actively being exploited, but less than 5% are identified.

Hospitals and other medical facilities must establish screening and training protocols to identify and properly care for victims.

LEARN ABOUT:

  • What is human trafficking?
  • Risk factors and vulnerabilities
  • Medical implications and signs of trafficking
  • Screening and rapport building
  • Collaboration outside the hospital
  • Perspective from a survivor

This program is brought to you by the Medical Affairs Department at Samaritan Medical Center in collaboration with Jefferson Community College.

Brain Injury Support Group

Samaritan Medical Center is pleased to offer a monthly Brain Injury Support Group for survivors of sudden brain injuries and their families and caregivers.

This group provides social support for those recovering from a stroke, traumatic brain injury, brain tumor, or other condition causing difficulty with cognition or communication. It is a chance to share experiences, challenges, and resources.

Group meetings typically consist of a short educational lesson, video, or guest speaker, followed by a group discussion.

Prepared Childbirth Class

The Childbirth Class is an educational experience to show mothers and support persons what to expect during the birthing experience while in the hospital. This FREE class should ideally be taken near the seventh month of pregnancy (after 28 weeks) and is designed to give an overview of relaxation techniques, pain management options, the laboring process, when to come to the hospital, and understanding how all of this works together with your expectations during birth.

Please come directly to the dedicated entrance for the Car-Freshner Center for Women and Children, located directly off Sherman Street in Watertown, on the back end of the hospital campus. You will enter the main doors and hit the intercom button to tell the staff you are here, then proceed to the elevators to the 3rd floor. There is another locked door with an intercom before entering the unit. Safety is a priority for our newborns, and we are a secure unit.

 We are excited to be part of your journey and show you all the reasons Samaritan is the best choice for you and your baby with a fantastic staff, beautiful and spacious rooms, and unit, plus the only Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the region. We are a Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

The class is back in person. Please register using the form below. Class is free to attend, but spots are limited.
