Message from Stephanie Hopper, Director of Clinical Services
Hospice of Hope and Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley is committed to providing compassionate care to aging Kentuckians and Ohioans at the end of life. Our priority right now at Hospice of Hope and Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley is protecting those that we serve and our team members from exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19). We know that our patient population is among those at risk to the effects of the illness, and we understand that our patients and families may have fears and concerns.
Here is what we have done in preparation for COVID-19 and continue to do to prevent the spread of infection at each of our offices and across our communities.
We are strictly following the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Kentucky Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Health, local government, and health departments.
Our clinical and administrative teams are practicing exceptional hand hygiene and have increased our disinfecting process.
Our team is being monitored daily for illness so that individuals who may be ill are not coming to work.
We are adhering to changing clinical protocols at long-term care facilities and in patients' homes.
We are educating families in our Hospice care centers.
We have suspended routine volunteer activities that involve patient care.
The CDC has provided excellent guidance on preventative measures for our older adults and at-risk populations, which Hospice of Hope and Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley will follow and share with patients and families. We recommend all patients and families with questions or concerns follow the definitive sources for information nationally and locally for COVID-19 updates.
