Increased Precautions Being Taken at all EDCare Locations:

At EDCare the care and safety of our patients, families, and staff continue to be our primary concern. We would like to share the proactive steps we are taking in our facilities to keep everyone safe. Our Joint Commission Accredited facilities follow universal precautions. They are the cornerstone of our infection prevention and control policies. In addition to this, and with the onset of COVID-19, we have added the following additional measures to our daily routines:

  • Increased Sanitization – All dining room surfaces are being sanitized before and after every meal and snack, and all commonly handled areas are being disinfected twice daily. Hand sanitizer bottles are available throughout our centers.
  • Screenings, Testing, & Vaccinations – COVID-19 tests are part of our pre-admission medical clearance process. All patients and staff undergo daily temperature screenings. Our staff has reached the target vaccination goals for “herd immunity” across all locations.
  • Social Distancing – Social distancing stickers on the floor and plexiglass barriers are still in effect in our high traffic areas, such as waiting rooms and dining areas. Admission assessments, meetings, groups, all PHP/IOP/OP sessions, and family therapy sessions have been cleared for in-person attendance.
  • Face Coverings – Staff and patients are required to wear a face covering. EDCare will provide a cloth mask to all patients upon admission.

We will continue to update our policies and procedures as more information becomes available from the local and global disease control agencies.

CDC Preventive Measures:

There is currently no vaccine to prevent Coronavirus (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The CDC recommends the following everyday preventive actions to help prevent COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when in public, even if you do not feel sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
