In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that we all find ourselves in Accuro Homecare has implemented certain extra procedures above what has currently been implemented surrounding the use of face masks and the now mandatory influenza vaccinations for all in-home care workers.
The Australian government has provided an online training module for workers in all sectors of health care that covers the fundamentals of COVID-19 infection control and prevention. It gives workers an understanding of how the virus is spread, what they can do to protect those they care for, how to identify the symptoms and what to do if someone has those symptoms.
As we all would be aware the coronavirus situation is changing rapidly and we must stay on top of and listen to the advice afforded to us from the Australian Government and medical officials.
Some new rules were introduced yesterday to take effect as of Monday this week. Remember we ALL have a responsibility to help in stopping the spread and here are the rules that will affect our workers, your services and supports and what we would like to happen from here.
