We are committed to keeping you safe
Our goal during the COVID-19 pandemic is to continue providing superior care to our patients in the safety of their home, where they are less susceptible to the spread of the virus.
We continue to monitor the latest COVID-19 updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as federal, state and local guidance. We have implemented protocols that are consistent with these guidelines to ensure the quality and safety of the care we provide.
COVID-19 information provided by the CDC
Whether at home, in public venues or at work, each of us is exposed to a range of illnesses including colds and flu. If you’re feeling ill, stay home, and seek care if you have signs of serious illness such as:
- Shortness of breath
- Prevention recommendations
- Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
- Tips on preventing the spread of infection
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub (hand sanitizer) with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover your cough with your upper sleeve or elbow to keep germs from spreading.
- Avoid sharing drinks, food, and/or cigarettes or vaping products.
- If you share a room or apartment with someone who is sick, try to stay at least 6 feet away to prevent exposure through coughing.
- Stay home if you’re sick and avoid contact with other people.
