As I have mentioned on many of my recent communications, the last few weeks have been a testament to the amazing people we have through every part of our company.
We have collectively met the numerous challenges we have faced with a wonderful mix of tenacity and compassion with large helpings of innovation and imagination. We have risen time and time again to create solutions that make a real difference while maintaining a laser focus on what we can do to keep our caregivers and our clients safe and sound both now and the weeks to come.
I think it is important to share our collective efforts so we can continue to understand why we have such confidence in the care we provide.
WE HAVE PPE
We always knew that having access to PPE was going to be key to delivering care to our clients and maintaining the safety of our caregivers. Led by our very own Cathy Dancy (Vice President of HR & Facilities), we set an aggressive purchasing strategy and broadened our supply chain significantly so we could get the protective equipment our caregivers and clinical teams need to keep everyone safe. Each and every day we continue to deliver on this front by packing and shipping these supplies to our offices across our mid Atlantic footprint.
COVID CLINICAL RESPONSE TEAM – PREPARED AND READY TO SERVE
This really is a game-changer for us and speaks to our continued commitment to population health. We have always maintained that if somebody needs our help we will go above and beyond to provide it. This stands as true as always and has resulted in us creating both a Skilled and Personal Care Clinical Task Force dedicated to serving clients and patients who have COVID-19.
The substantial supplies of PPE I previously highlighted coupled with the strength and depth we have in our nursing team we are able to look after COVID-19 positive patients in the home in a safe way. We have the resources, equipment and knowledge to deliver care with complete confidence.
VIRTUAL COVID-19 RESOURCE HUB
Having access to up-to-date information on COVID-19 and highlighting what we are doing as a company from both the Personal Care and Skilled perspectives is a necessity. To address this, we have created a dedicated COVID-19 Resource Center on our company web site filled with useful information for all audiences. From company updates, educational videos, articles and other great content all of which are designed to keep you and the people who need us informed.
Although this is a relatively new addition, we are already filling this resource with content and will continue to do so on a weekly basis. Check it out for yourself, click here https://www.careadvantageinc.com/covid-19.
I will be providing further updates in the coming weeks as we successfully work our way through the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, thank you for your continued commitment to our collective cause and providing exceptional care to our patients and clients across our footprint.
