How does Ready Responders protect its patients and Responders from the spread of highly contagious viruses like COVID-19?
Ready Responders is equipped to handle a wide spectrum of public health emergencies and, like any hospital or healthcare provider, observes stringent protocols to prevent the spread of viruses like COVID-19. We are actively following all CDC guidelines related to the virus and are engaged in ongoing training to protect ourselves and our patients as the situation unfolds.
All Responders are outfitted with equipment designed to greatly mitigate the impact of a virus such as COVID-19, including gowns, gloves and specialized masks.
We are also augmenting our regular cleaning and sanitization schedule to further ensure that our vehicles and anything that enter a patient’s home (medical equipment, laptops, smartphones, etc.) are completely safe.
Without the ability to test for COVID-19 right now, how would Ready Responders handle a patient with symptoms?
We screen patients before entering their home for COVID-19 symptoms. If they screen positive, we evaluate them to ensure the patient is medically stable, and then we work with local public health agencies to determine next steps.
