To Our Patients, their Families, Community Stakeholders, Current and Prospective Staff
From the onset of the current public health crisis Continuum has been pro-active in preparing our staff and clients to minimize the risk and impact of Novel Coronavirus and ensure uninterrupted nursing services for our patients. Following you will find the latest information regarding Continuum’s management of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic:
While many of our staff members continue to work remotely in consideration of the social distancing initiative, all offices, departments and activities of our organization have been, are now, and will remain, fully functioning throughout this public health emergency. We continue to recruit and hire nurses and our nurse supervisors and schedulers are working around the clock to meet patient needs. From the initial outbreak, we have educated our staff on proper hygiene and preventative measures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and required that these protocols be followed as a condition of employment. As CDC, OSHA, and WHO guidance has evolved so has our training and policies.
Our Staff Attestation form serves as the foundation of our COVID-19 risk assessment procedure. All active staff have completed this form, and we are taking action related to reported risks following CDC guidelines. Thorough communication of any potential exposure is shared with affected families and staff immediately.
We ask that our patients and their family support our efforts by following the CDC guidance on COVID-19 household planning for personal health habits and everyday preventative actions. If there is exposure in their home, or if one of their family members exhibits symptoms, we ask that they inform Continuum.
We are confident that ongoing education on proper hygiene and preventative measures coupled with Continuum’s already rigorous hiring and training processes will continue to ensure the highest level of care for our patients. We are available twenty-four hours a day, every day, to listen and react to any concerns you may have and as always we thank you for entrusting us as a partner in caring for you or your loved one.
