Compliance Support for Healthcare Professionals During COVID-19
Since the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in the United States on January 20th, 2020, the nation, and the world has had to adjust to the coronavirus pandemic quickly. Beginning with restrictions on traveling between countries with higher levels of confirmed cases and progressing to the shutting down of all non-essential businesses. Businesses of all kinds, the past few months have begun to reopen and with the necessary precautions needed to reduce the spread of the virus.
Throughout this pandemic, one of the hardest-hit industries has been healthcare. There has been a high demand placed on healthcare workers to treat all patients, including those who have the virus, while still keeping themselves safe. To meet these demands, many facilities have relied on things like telemedicine, and new strategies to reduce the risks of exposure, including social distancing or conducting symptom screenings to everyone (patients, employees, visitors, etc.) at their entrances.
Healthcare Compliance Pros recognizes the added stress this pandemic has created for healthcare workers everywhere, and we are here to help with these challenges. As healthcare organizations attempt to return to their daily operations, certain COVID precautions need to be in place to keep employers, employees, and patients safe.
