Our Protect Infection Prevention Program

We are committed to keeping those in our care safe and healthy towards infectious threats. Throughout the continuum of care, preventive strategies, including vaccination, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and early testing if exposed and symptomatic, are discussed and encouraged with residents, plan participants, and their families.

Our comprehensive infection prevention initiative includes ongoing monitoring by our staff, including an Infection Prevention and Control Nurse (IPCs) at every nursing home and an Infectious Disease Medical Director. The IPCs conduct daily rounds and ensure that staff are following proper PPE usage as well as help to create a safe environment for all in our care.


Safety training for all staff members for in-home visits


PPE protocol followed at all times
