Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) was first discovered in China in December 2019 in a cluster of pneumonia cases. This is a novel virus that is continuing to spread around the world. As with any other newly-identified virus there is much to learn about the disease process, mode of transmission, incubation period, symptoms, and treatment.

At this point in time, the homecare and hospice care industry should be preparing for altered and crisis standards of care. A review of your pandemic plan should be occurring right now and processes should be updated. Home-based care is dependent on personnel, so up-to-date information and training is essential. 

Join PHA for a live webinar on Friday, March 13th from 1-2 p.m. presented by Barbara Citarella, RN, BSN, MS, CHCE, NHDP-BC, President and CEO of RBC Limited, one of the most trusted voices in homecare, infection control, and disaster preparedness. PHA members can register for $40 (50% off the regular registration fee of $79) by using promo code STATECOVID.
