RHHCS Care Workers are implementing Reliable Hands Coronavirus (COVID-19) Prevention and Management Procedure to ensure the safety of all our clients. As part of this, upon arrival at a client’s home, the Care Worker will ask about the client’s general wellbeing and check to see if they have had visitors since the Care Worker’s last visit.
In cases where clients receive services from our preferred agencies, we are working closely with them to ensure their prevention plans meet our standards. If any client receives in-home services organised by another service provider (outside of your agreement with Reliable Hands), we encourage clients to request assurances from them about their prevention plans.
Anyone who has travelled overseas in the last 14 days may be a carrier of Coronavirus.
Reliable Hands requires that any employee, volunteer, client, agency staff, contractor or visitor be screened for symptoms and risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19) before entering Reliable Hands office or proceeding with a client home visit.
