Important COVID-19 Information
Now, more than ever, there is a growing concern to keep you, your family, and our team safe when it comes to slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. We understand you may be thinking about what this means for you and your loved ones. Duke HomeCare & Hospice has resources in place to address the spread of infection so we can continue to provide excellent patient care.
These additional measures include:
- Using personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, gowns, face masks and or booties.
- Proper hand hygiene, proper ways to shield/cover your face and mouth for a sneeze or cough, how to maintain safe social distance, and the importance of reducing visitors in your home.
- Using several screening questions for you, your loved ones and our own team members 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 all creative ways to meet your needs including in-person visits, telephone support, video virtual visits, and check-in calls.
- 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.
Whether counseling services or gathering with others, we provide opportunities to find strength and celebrate loved ones who have died, but remain in our hearts.
