In addition to Universal Precautions to prevent transmission of contagious illnesses, already in place at BoardPrep, we have also implemented the following practices:
- Online (Telehealth) options are now being offered for all levels of care when clinically appropriate, including evaluations.
- All participants in group therapy (including day-night participants) access the session through a secure/confidential virtual platform from the safety of their own residence.
- All participants in one-to-one therapy (including day-night participants) access the session through a secure/confidential virtual platform from the safety of their own residence.
- Additional hand hygiene and surface sterilization measures are in place throughout the facility.
- Social distancing is practiced throughout the facility and recovery residences.
- Respiratory etiquette is promoted (coughing or sneezing into tissues that are promptly thrown into trash cans).
- Daily temperature checks are performed on all staff and residents so that early detection and isolation is practiced.
- Sharing of electronic devices and phones is not allowed.
- Workers with sick family members are directed to stay home until they can get tested and cleared to return to work.
- New admissions are screened using CDC guidelines and temperature checks. Daily temperature checks are performed on all residents and staff.
- BoardPrep stays abreast of guidance from federal, state, local, tribal, and/or territorial health agencies, and considers how to incorporate those recommendations and resources into care delivery plans daily.
- Currently all BoardPrep residents are “sheltering in place” to reduce the risk of exposure outside of the facility.
- Twelve Step meeting participation is facilitated in the residences or online.
- Staff that are able to work remotely are doing so.
Many of these measures will remain in effect until universal testing for COVID-19 becomes available or until a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available. As we all adjust to the “new normal,” some of these new procedures will likely remain in effect permanently in anticipation of novel disease outbreaks in the future.
