Evolve Care Coronavirus (COVID-19) Policy
Coronavirus (Covid-19) Policy
This page has been updated on 26th March 2020.
In order to ensure that all our employees and service users remain as protected as possible in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have introduced protocols and procedures to follow as advised by the Public Health England and government guidance on providing home care during this outbreak. These will be updated frequently as advised throughout the pandemic and employees will be informed with each update and guidance given on how to implement into practice.
We continue to work with our health and social care partners to ensure continuous care is provided to our service users with changes to staffing levels.
Although people of all ages can contract the coronavirus, the most at risk groups are the elderly, or have a pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease (although this is not an exhaustive list) are at higher risk of becoming severely ill if contracted the infection. Since these categories will include a large proportion of our service users, we are committed to being proactive in order to minimise this risk.
Key measures for preventing infection spread:
- Personal protective equipment,
- hand washing,
- social distancing
If a care worker is concerned they have COVID-19
If a member of staff is concerned they have COVID-19 they should follow NHS advice.
If they are advised to self-isolate at home they should follow the stay at home guidance.
If advised to self-isolate at home, they should not visit and care for individuals until safe to do so.
If the individual being cared for has symptoms of COVID-19
If the individual receiving care and support has symptoms of COVID-19, then the risk of transmission will be minimised through safe working procedures as advised by Public Health England.
