Home care workers have always had the role to keep patients at home and away from the Hospitals hence one of the measures of quality is Rehospitalization rates.
This is especially important at this time with the COVID-19 crisis when the hospitals are past capacity with COVID-19 emergencies. At Acclaim, we have trained our staff with procedures for caring for our patients safely. Like everyone else we ran short of Critical Personal Protective equipment PPE. We asked for help from state agencies and were lucky to get enough to keep the staff providing care safely. We also got a generous donation from Anna Maria College Paxton of 30 boxes of gloves and eye shields. For these we are extremely grateful.
Nobody has all the answers but everyday the Administration at Acclaim has worked hard to keep the company running financially as well as providing much needed moral support to the staff.
We will hopefully get through this awful experience stronger and better for it as a Human race. In the meantime, Thank you to all our wonderful Nurses, Therapists, Health Aides who have put their lives on the line to care for our patients and do all in their power to keep them home.
