April 1, 2020 / Alain Jacon / News, Prehospital, Safety

From the NY DOH: Please see the guidance to nursing homes and adult care facilities linked below.

Temperature checks are required for their administration, staff, visitors and EMS personnel. Anyone entering the nursing home or adult care facility is subject to COVID 19 screening as outlined in the guidance document linked below.

This guidance affects EMS providers when dropping off or picking up a patient at one of these facilities.

Compliance with this directive is not optional. It is required.

These facilities contain our most at risk population and we all, including but not limited to EMS, need to do our part to prevent spread inside these facilities as much as possible.

Read the directive.
