To maintain safety for staff / clients and everyone in contact with us, Reach Rehab staff are have adopted the following procedures:
- Take their temperature daily – taking note of it to indicate immediately if they have a fever.
- Use sanitiser between clients, before and after minimum 70% alcohol which kills coronovirus
- Wipe down car steering wheel, door handles inside & out and gear stick with antibacterial wipes at end of working day
- Take minimal equipment into homes. Only taking essentials in to minimise risk of carrying virus’s on hard surfaces.
- Any equipment that is used, is wiped down before and after use with antibacterial spray / wipes.
- Wear clean uniform daily. All uniform washed in a hot wash.
- If seeing concurrent clients without changing clothes, disposable aprons to be worn.
- Access to disposable gloves. These will be worn in situations where a client may be particularly vulnerable or when there is contact with surfaces regularly touched by the public during treatment sessions, eg bannisters in nursing homes.
- All clients will be asked before seeing them if they believe themselves to be free of any symptoms to Coronavirus, also that they are not at risk of being near any other person who is in the risk category of having this.
- All staff will carry their own tissues with them for themselves and for clients to use.
I do hope this helps to allay some fears. Please call and chat to us if you are at all concerned. 🙂
