Important COVID-19 Information
At Duke HomeCare & Hospice, we're focused on the safety of you, your loved ones, and our team. Our COVID-19 policies and procedures minimize the spread of infection so we can provide excellent patient care.
Our extra precautions to keep everyone safe includes :
- Using personal protective equipment (PPE) to meet the clinical needs of any setting, which may include gloves, gowns, face masks, face shields, and/or booties
- Proper hand hygiene, wearing a face shield/mask to cover a sneeze or cough, maintaining safe distances, and sharing the importance of reducing visitors in your home.
- Using several screening questions for you and your loved ones when scheduling and prior to a visit to reduce risk and determine who may visit. Please know that it may mean you are asked the same questions multiple times.
- Exploring ways to meet your needs, including in-person visits, telephone support, and check-in calls. We can also connect for video visits on your computer or mobile device.
- Limiting the number of people during a visit to one person in addition to the patient in the room. This measure will also help to reduce the chance of any extra germs entering your house.
Please feel free to call your team at 919-620-3853 with any questions or concerns. We are here for you. Visit our COVID-19 section for more information, frequently asked questions, and other resources.
