Provisions supplies personal protective equipment (PPE) for all our active employees and our clients for use within the home. In addition to PPE, we also screen our employees before every shift to verify they are not experiencing symptoms and have not been exposed to COVID-19 or any other contagious virus/infection in the past 14 days. It is our policy that employees always wear a clean mask while in the client’s home, in addition to frequent hand washing and safe distancing whenever possible whilst providing direct care to your client. When you are actively providing direct care, we advise wearing a clean mask and a plastic face shield for extra protection.
Supplies include a recurring monthly supply of tools that are recommended to keep you and others safe, such as
- Hand Soap
- Hand sanitizer
- Face masks
- Face shield
- Water-resistant gown (when available
In addition to the above, we are providing each client with a Temperature Scanner so everyone can scan foreheads for body temperature before a shift.
If any temperature is 99.9 °F, you must call the supervisor before administering care. If any temperature is 100.4 °F, care within the home must not be continued, and immediately call the supervisor for instructions.
