As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take shape, Comprehensive Home Health & Hospice remains committed to providing quality, safe and reliable care for our patients.
We continue to monitor the latest COVID-19 updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as federal, state and local guidance. We have identified and implemented protocols that are aligned with these guidelines to ensure the ongoing quality of the care we provide and safety for our patients.
General precautions as outlined 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.
