Steps we are taking to protect our clients:

  • RN training home care employees on COVID-19 and infection control
  • Increasing handwashing and hand-sanitizing protocols: upon arrival, before/after direct contact and at regular intervals throughout the day
  • Wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when exposure to a known or potential case of COVID-19 is suspected
  • Limiting client exposure by helping with pharmacy pick-up, grocery shopping and errands
  • Responding quickly to any client symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, and shortness of breath) or any other emergency issues
  • Administration is staying up to date with the latest news on COVID-19, released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and sharing relevant information with our staff
  • Limiting access to our main office to reduce exposure to caregivers and clients
  • Monthly RN client calls to make sure they are safe and symptom free
  • Complying with all COVID-19 guidelines from the CDC, World Health Organization (WHO) and all applicable federal, state, and local requirements
 
As this situation evolves, we will continue to take proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients. Please reference the CDC’s website for more information about COVID-19
