Actions Home Health Clinicians Can Take to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
About This Webinar
As the United States continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the important work of home health, hospice, and private duty care providers doesn’t stop. Your clients and patients depend on the care they receive from you and your organization.
If those providing care are not cautious, they could be bringing COVID-19 to the people they are trying to protect. It is now more important than ever that everyone is following infection prevention best practices to mitigate risk to you, your staff, your patients, and your family.
Together with our partner National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) we dive into the best ways for in-home providers to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Watch this webinar to learn how to:
- Describe infection prevention and control strategies to prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in the home
- Recognize common infection prevention and control breaches during care to patients in the home
- Describe best practice recommendations for managing PPE when supplies are limited
- Explain how to effectively prepare for caring for a patient suspected or confirmed of having COVID-19 in the home
