As more COVID patients are discharged from hospitals or are diagnosed in community settings, each home care and hospice agency must develop policies and procedures that reflect their own agency operations, capabilities, and patient/community needs.
I’ve attached a document to help you do that. This guidance was developed by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts, who graciously shared it with us. Our COVID-19 Committee reviewed it, adapted it for NH, and believe that it may be useful for our members.
Thank you for all that you are doing to provide care in this difficult time!
