Statement from the Director of Patient Care Services
From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Eastbay Home Health Services Inc. has been 100% committed to keeping our patients and staff safe. We have implemented strict precautionary measures based on Federal, State and County Guidelines, and have provided on-going education to our staff and patients to ensure that they have the most up-to-date information on how to stay protected.
Our goal is to keep our patients in the safety of their homes and away from their provider’s offices or hospitals where there may be an increased risk of exposure to the virus.
We have implemented the following measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- All our clinicians have received infection control training, up-to-date protocols, and essential PPE supplies to ensure their safety and the safety of our patients.
- We have also required our administrative and clinical staff to test every 30 days for COVID-19, through a local testing facility.
- All patients referred to our service are screened for symptoms of COVID-19, and assessed for risk of exposure to the virus upon admission and prior to each visit.
- We keep current with Federal, State and County guidelines to ensure that we have implemented all necessary precautions/best practices to keep our patients and staff safe.
- We conducted a small random sampling of our staff to assess their COVID-19 antibody status to help evaluate our response to the pandemic.
- We continue to coordinate all patient care with direct orders from Primary Care Physicians. Your physician will be kept up-to-date on the status of your health and immediately informed of any change in condition.
- Should you have any questions or concerns regarding our agency and its response to the virus or the services we provide, we are available 24/7 to assist and support you.
