Health and Safety Come First at Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services
Concern for the health and safety of its clients, as well as the nurses and aides who care for them, has always been a top priority for Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), with offices in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. Since COVID-19, however, additional safety practices are now standard.
All nurses and aides, who are bonded, licensed, and insured, are educated and trained in CDC safety practices and recommendations. They are required to self-monitor their temperatures before visiting a home. Each clinician and aide have approved CDC personal protection equipment, including gowns, KN95 masks, face shields, and gloves for each client.
Employees receive weekly updated CDC guidelines and information; and nurses, aides, and families have access to a clinical supervisor 24 hours a day. Client telehealth visits are conducted daily to ensure the well-being of PHHC clients and families.
PHHC Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Herman said, “Throughout the pandemic, Preferred is proud to have maintained our high standard of care for all of our clients, while also working hard to ensure the safety of our nurses and aides. They continue to demonstrate why they are recognized as heroes during this time.”
For the past 20 years, PHHC has been accredited by CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Partner), an accrediting organization for the home health care industry.
