Throughout the pandemic and beyond the office staff at Extended Family Care has done everything they could to make sure their employees have remained safe. Led by Mary Lynne Heller, RN Administrator, the team masks, disinfects and provides their field staff all the personal protective equipment they need to remain safe and to do their part in stopping the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Mary Lynne knows the importance of infection control. “As a nurse I have always stressed the importance of handwashing and universal precautions to our team. Once the pandemic hit, I knew they were ready”, she said.
Re-education and ensuring the staff had the proper personal protective equipment necessary to prevent unnecessary transmission of the virus gave their clients the confidence they needed to continue business as usual throughout the last year. “I see us as a leader in the area”, Ms. Heller continued. “Because we took the necessary precautions early on to keep everyone safe, business has actually increased over the past year”, she concluded.
