Hospital Corpsman 1 & C. Rate Training Manual and Nonresident Career Course. Revised.
Smith, Frederick R.
This Rate Training Manual (RTM) and Nonresident Career Course (NRCC) form a self-study package that will enable Navy senior hospital corps personnel to fulfill the requirements of their rating. While primarily developed around the requirements for personnel serving on independent duty, the information contained within it is applicable to all HM 1 & C personnel. Among the requirements discussed are the abilities to supervise and conduct sick call, including history taking, examination, diagnosing, and treating of sick call and emergency patients; recognizing and treating emergency dental conditions; performing health care inspections; performing and interpreting the results of elementary laboratory procedures; discharging environmental and preventive medicine functions such as sewage and refuse disposal, sexually transmitted disease contact interviewing and reporting, and food service sanitation procedures; ordering, receiving, and issuing supplies and maintaining the associated accounting records; administering mass immunizations; preparation and maintenance of medical and personnel records; executing the various aspects of the Decedent Affairs Program; ensuring compliance with rules and regulations for security practices and procedures; and performing the general duties connected with the administration of medical departments ashore and afloat. Designed for individual study and not formal classroom instruction, this RTM provides subject matter directly related to the occupational qualifications of the HM 1 & C rating. The NRCC provides the usual way of satisfying the requirements for completion of this RTM. The set of assignments in the NRCC includes learning objectives and supporting items designed to lead students through the RTM. (KC)
