COVID-19 UPDATES

LEARN HOW PROCARE HOME MEDICAL IS  RESPONDING TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

As the situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we want to update you on the precautions Procare Home Medical has put in place.

At Procare Home Medical, we take great pride — both personally and professionally — in the role we play in improving the lives of our patients at home.

As always, Procare’s top priority is the health and safety of our employees and patients, and we take this commitment very seriously.

 

Infection Control

Procare Home Medical has always placed an emphasis on maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene.  The company has taken additional measures to reinforce this commitment by implementing an internal campaign to remind all employees to continue to proactively practice “good health habits” during daily operations to and from work, and at home.

These preventative measures include:

  • Hand Hygiene: Frequently washing hands with soap or using a hand sanitizer that contains alcohol.
  • Avoid touching the face with unwashed hands.
  • Covering their mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and properly disposing of the used tissue in a wastebasket.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using regular household cleaning sprays or wipes.

 

Patient Safety

Procare Home Medical has well-established infection control procedures in place which are in compliance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and have been validated through the accreditation process with Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP).

No Procare Home Medical employee is permitted to service a patient diagnosed with COVID-19 unless the employee is wearing properly fitted respiratory protective equipment and has completed respirator training.

The situation remains extremely fluid and Procare Home Medical continues to monitor the progress of the COVID-19.  The company is closely monitoring communications from CDC and other health experts and government agencies and will adapt its procedures as necessary to ensure the actions we are taking are comprehensive and appropriate.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19), but you can take steps to protect yourself and others, such as cleaning your hands often, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces daily.
