Coronavirus 19 Statement

Abundant Hospice is dedicated to providing high quality patient care while protecting our patients, staff, and the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) presents significant challenges for all of us, but especially our older population and people with chronic conditions who are most vulnerable to the virus. 

We at Abundant Hospice strongly believe that the care we offer at home is of lower risk than the delivery of care in other settings, where patients are more likely to be exposed, thereby preventing unnecessary hospitalizations.

We are taking every possible precaution to protect our patients, their caregivers and our clinicians from the spread of the virus, therefore we have incorporated the following changes to our operations in order to minimize the risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.

  • Staff members are required to self-screen daily and cannot work if they have any symptoms of illness.
  • Every in-home clinician must pass a daily health screening before being approved for patient visits
  • Patient care staff are taking extra precautions when visiting patients.
  • Facemasks and social distancing are required.
  • We are employing the use of telehealth technology when appropriate.
  • We are conducting risk assessments on every patient who is referred to our service or currently on our service
  • We require personal protective equipment when treating patients with confirmed positive COVID-19 tests and those under home monitoring for coronavirus.
  • We have provided updated training on infectious disease control to all of our employees, including the proper use of protective equipment
  • We’ve established a multi-disciplinary task force to coordinate and lead our efforts related to COVID-19

Additionally, we are internally monitoring developments, updates, and advisories from public health agencies in regards to COVID-19.

Abundant Hospice recognizes that many peoples’ lives have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to offer our thoughts for persons affected by this pandemic, both locally and globally.

We remain 100% committed to providing compassion and care with dignity to our patients while serving our community as an important resource.

Know the facts about Coronavirus & help stop the spread of rumors

Diseases can make anyone sick regardless of their race or ethnicity.
Fear and anxiety about COVID-19 can cause people to avoid or reject others even though they are not at risk for spreading the virus.

For most people, the immediate risk of becoming seriously ill from the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low.
Some people may have an increased risk for more serious complications from COVID-19 and should take measures to protect themselves.

Someone who has completed quarantine or has been released from isolation does not pose a risk of infection to other people. For up-to-date information, visit CDC’s coronavirus disease situation summary page.

There are simple things you can do to help keep yourself and others healthy.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

You can help stop COVID-19 by knowing the signs and symptoms:

  • Fever, cough or other symptoms
  • Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider.
  • Keep track of your symptoms.
  • If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), get emergency medical care immediately.
