Reflections in Strength, Resilience and Hope
One year after the first Johns Hopkins patient was diagnosed with COVID-19, we commemorate those we lost and those we helped recover and heal at home.
We also honor our nurses, CNAs, therapists, pharmacists, technicians and other personnel on the front lines, as well as those who kept our operations going throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
At Johns Hopkins Home Care Group, providing safe, high-quality care to our patients and the community is our top priority. As we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to share with you the steps we are taking to reduce the spread of the virus, identify and treat patients who may be infected and maintain the safety of our patients and staff.
- Patient and Household Screenings: You will receive a phone call from our staff prior to your visit. They will conduct a COVID-19 screening by asking you a few simple questions. Please be open with our staff, so they can ensure the proper safety procedures are followed.
- Patient Masking and Physical Distancing: We ask that only the patient and caregiver be present in the room during the visit, and when possible, that you maintain six feet of distance from our staff. We require all patients, over age 2, and caregivers to wear masks for the entire length of the visit.
- Daily Staff Screenings: All of our staff members perform self-screenings each day. They use a tool developed by Johns Hopkins Medicine Healthcare Epidemiology and Infection Control to ensure a consistent screening approach across all employees in our organization. No one comes to work if there is any sign of symptoms related to COVID-19.
- Personal Protective Equipment for Staff: We follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the appropriate use of personal protective equipment for our staff. This includes wearing a face shield and surgical mask throughout the visit for your protection. In addition, you may also notice that we disinfect our equipment more frequently and maintain six feet of physical distance, except when providing direct care.
All of these efforts are done in close collaboration with our experts in infectious disease prevention across Johns Hopkins Medicine, and in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. Learn more about the collaboration between Home Health Services, hospital-based services and outpatient services to care for patients after a COVID-19 diagnosis.
We know you may be nervous or concerned about seeking care. Please do not let the COVID-19 pandemic stop you from getting the care you or your loved ones need. We are here to help you.
Appointment and Procedure Updates
We are updating some appointment and procedure practices to help lessen the spread of the new coronavirus and COVID-19.
- Many Johns Hopkins patients and new patients may now have the option to have a video appointment (telemedicine) with their provider, depending on their healthcare need. If you do not have a device to use for a video visit, you and your provider may decide that a telephone call will meet your needs.
- In some cases, appointments or procedures may need to be rescheduled. If there are changes to your care, your provider will contact you.
