One of our most notable accomplishments has been the refinement of a task force combating COVID-19 in Assisted Living Facilities. In California’s San Mateo County, AMI’s team is split into two groups to form a Medical Task Force with two distinct components – the Initial Assessment Team and the Stabilization and Treatment Team.
Our objective is to assess all nursing facilities in response to Covid-19 pandemic, including Assisted Living Facilities, rehabilitation homes, and residences that house individuals with physical and developmental disabilities.
AMI’s Assessment Team gathers important information on each facility and makes actionable recommendations to management. Based on those recommendations and together with the guidance of Public Health Departments and Emergency Medical Services Organizations, we mobilize the Stabilization and Treatment Team to the facility in question. Setting up Infection Control Procedures with CDC guidance is the single-most important step in stopping an outbreak. Proper PPE training as well as the implementation of strict IPC protocols is mandatory.
Depending on the needs of the facility, AMI is prepared to supplement staffing needs or if needed take over the entire nursing and medical care of residents. We have nurses, doctors and other healthcare providers that specialize in geriatrics, psychiatry and in the care of those with physical and mental disabilities. To date, we have assessed over 330 nursing facilities around San Mateo County and have provided supplemental and complete care to over 60 facilities in California.
AMI is contracted by the #CDC to determine the prevalence of asymptomatic #COVID19 carriers on college campuses and what can be done to slow the spread of the disease. #wearealreadythere
