Steps We Are Taking During Covid-19 Outbreak
To all our client’s families and clients at Midwest Recovery Centers, all of us are paying close attention to the worldwide spread of the Covid-19 virus. At Midwest Recovery Centers, we’re vigilantly implementing enhanced protocols for the safety of our clients and staff.
We are closely monitoring, daily, the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control, The Joint Commission and the MO Department of Mental Health regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we continue to meet our clients’ needs while doing our part to keep our community safe.
Here is what we are doing:
- We have enhanced the techniques and frequency of facility cleanings multiple times daily, using recommended sanitizing products. In particular, we are paying special attention to client touch points such as seats, door handles, high traffic areas, and other hard surfaces.
- We are cleaning our vehicles daily with these recommended cleaning products, as well.
- We are taking steps to ensure the welfare of our employees. This includes instructing employees who feel ill to stay home and consult their healthcare providers. We are also urging all employees to be vigilant about frequent hand washing.
- We are discontinuing all outside meeting attendance and asking all visitors to do a health screening with temp check before engaging with clients.
- The following are time-tested infection prevention strategies we request our clients follow:
- Hand Hygiene
- According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the single most effective way to prevent infection is through thorough and proper hand hygiene.
- Please wash hands with soap and water or decontaminate hands using antibacterial hand gels.
- Wash Your Hands
- After toileting
- Before eating or smoking
- When your hands are noticeably dirty
- Decontaminate with Antibacterial Hand Gel
- If your hands are not visibly soiled
- After contacting another person’s skin
- After touching contaminated surfaces
- After coughing or sneezing
- Cough Etiquette
- If you cough or sneeze, please do so into a tissue or the sleeve of your clothing.
- If you are running a fever, inform our staff and do not interact with other clients.
During this challenging time, we are here for our community. Your safety is our highest priority.
Please feel free to call us with concerns or questions regarding your loved ones or our program policies and procedures. We are continuing operations through this time of crisis and intend to continue to be your Hometown Recovery Program
