Covid 19

COVID-19 Preparation 

Due to the every changing situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to inform you of the actions we are taking to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff: 

The efforts we are putting forth in preventing infection include the following:

  1. Our staff will call patient prior to their scheduled visit and assess for any signs or symptoms of infection. 

  2. Our staff will again ask patient during the visit if they have had any signs or symptoms of infections. 

  3. Each day prior to starting work, our staff are reporting their temperature and any signs or symptoms of infection. If our staff are showing any signs or symptoms of infection, they will not be providing any patient care and they will have one of their co-workers contact the patient regarding their schedule. 

  4. Our staff have been re-educated on infection control measures. 

  5. Our staff will wash their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer for 20 seconds upon arrival for the visit, prior to any procedure, and at the end of the visit. 

  6. In accordance with CDC guidelines, our staff will wear the appropriate personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks, isolation gown and/or goggles whenever a patient we are caring for, or one of their caregivers, has any symptoms or has been diagnosed with COVID-19. 

  7. We will use barrier pads and all of our equipment is wiped down with disinfectant after the completion of the visit to prevent the spread of infection. 

How can you help us: 

  1. If you or someone else living in your home has a sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, cough or a temperature greater than 100.4, please call our office so that we can prepare our staff who are providing your care or aide in providing you instruction if other care is needed. 

  2. If you or someone else living in your home has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or is awaiting the test results for possible COVID-19 infection, please contact our office with that information. If the symptoms of COVID-19 worsen and require you to call 911, please ensure that the emergency responder is notified that you or another has been tested for COVID-19. 

  3. Make sure that you always have two weeks of medication available in the event of need during an emergency 

  4. Make sure you have enough food for two weeks. If you need assistance, please let our staff now so we can assist with resources 

  5. Have an emergency plan in the event you need to leave your home for a period of time, and communicate that with us so that we will know how to contact you. 

  6. Read you Indiana HomeCare Services admission book provided to you upon admission, as it has a lot of great information on infection control and preparing for an emergency.
