Client Status Changes
You must notify the office of any changes to your client's health or any changes in their home environment that may affect their health and welfare so that we can work with them, their doctor, and with you on any changes in their care needs.
If a client reports that they are being tested for Covid 19 or has any symptoms you must report it to the office immediately.
Personal Protective Items
Hand Sanitizer is available at the office. Please save the bottle to refill it at the office. This is for use when you are unable to wash your hands, but hand washing is still the best prevention.
Masks and face shields are available for staff and clients. Staff must pick up a N-95 masks ASAP.
COVID-19 vs Flu Season
Universal Precautions are the best defense against all germs and virus'. Wear your gloves when providing personal care and doing laundry. Wash your hands upon arriving and before leaving the client's home and throughout the day. If you cannot wash with soap and water, use hand sanitizer. Staff MUST continue to wear masks in client's homes, even with the changes in Ohio regulations. Report symptoms to the office immediately (fever 100.4+, chills, cough, body aches, headache, fatigue). Do not go to a client's home with any symptoms.
If any clients test positive for a virus you will be notified of the appropriate actions that are being taken.
If you are tested for Covid 19 you must report the date and reason to the office immediately.
Encourage your clients to wear a mask when you are providing their care and if they leave their home or have a visitor.
The symptoms of the flu are the same as COVID-19 with the exception of the loss of taste and/or smell and will not usually cause shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Typically COVID-19 does not cause nausea, vomiting, runny nose, or nasal congestion, but it can be a symptom for some. When in doubt it is best to see the doctor.
Thank you to all EJQ staff for excellence in service and loyalty to our clients!
