OSHA is committed to protecting the health and safety of America’s workers. As such, they have published a document to provide guidance for the employers of those working nursing homes, assisted living, and other long-term care facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. LTCFs are different than other healthcare settings because they assist residents and clients with tasks of daily living in addition to providing skilled nursing care.
Remember, keep your staff, residents, and visitors safe, follow the guidelines, don’t deviate or cut corners, your tomorrow may depend on it! Stay the course, stay strong, stay well, stay safe, mask up, and stay tuned!
