The current global health crisis is extremely stressful for most people. Increased fear and anxiety are common reactors and overwhelming emotions are felt and fought at time like this. As a result, many individuals with a mental health or substance use disorder end up suffering even more during intense societal issues such as the COVID-19 outbreak. We are dedicated to continuing our mission of providing the highest level of care for you or your loved one, especially during such an intense crisis.
At AKUA Mind & Body, the safety of our Clients is our top priority. We are aware of the increased fear and anxiety among most people with regard to the current pandemic. Hence, we are doing everything that we can to maintain healthfulness and safety. We have reviewed medical and hygiene protocols with staff and are in touch with local health care providers and emergency management centers to ensure that we are equipped with the latest information and resources.
We are taking the following precautions:
- Constantly monitoring information from Center for Disease Control and Prevention, state, and local agencies to ensure we are following the guidelines set in place from authorities.
- Communicating with medical and clinical staff as well as current clients regarding the importance of adhering to all hand washing protocols and preventative measures including daily reminders.
- Enacting visitor and client health and travel screening prior to allowing entrance into all facilities and company owned transportation vans.
- Ensuring the use of protective gloves to be worn by all employees who are in contact with food.
- Enhancing cleaning procedures of common areas including but not limited to door handles, railings, chairs, counters, therapy group rooms, and client areas.
- Limiting client outside activities and meetings.
- Referring clients to medical facilities who may begin to experience symptoms.
- Screening all perspective clients prior to admission and upon admission for symptoms, travel and temperature.
- Urging staff to stay home if they are feeling ill and sending them home at first sight of illness.
Our priority is to keep our front line medical and clinical staff, clients, and visitors safe and well informed, while doing what we can to help minimize the potential spread of the novel COVID-19.
