2 Step TB, Drug Test and back ground are a part of the hiring process, along with orientation.

One -two patients a month for at least one hour each visit which is anywhere from 2-4 visits per month. Play cards, board games, talk about pictures, their life as a child, memories, read a book or newspaper to them. Hold their hand and just talk about life.
