A Home Health Organizational Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic - Recorded Webinar
We are celebrating Nurse Week 2021!
The purpose of this activity is to provide a high-level overview describing how our organization pivoted to provide enterprise-wide support to our service offices and clinicians during the pandemic. I will discuss how we used the latest evidence and guidance from the CDC and OSHA to keep our health care workers safe and continue to provide care to our clients when many home health care agencies were not accepting COVID-19 positive clients.
