TROY – Troy Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center has rolled out a new program to encourage its employees to continue to practice COVID-19 safety protocols outside of work. Launched in July, the “Healthcare Angel’s Pledge” program will heighten resident and patient safety during the pandemic by limiting the likelihood of employees contracting the virus elsewhere and bringing it into the facility.
Each employee signing the “Healthcare Angel’s Pledge” commits to wear facemasks, social distance and practice good hand hygiene at all times, as well as to proactively encourage family, friends and coworkers to do the same. The center is providing those who sign the pledge with two face masks featuring the Troy Rehab’s logo and a silicone bracelet inscribed with the words, “I Am A Healthcare Angel.”
“The safety of our residents and patients is our top priority, and protecting against the COVID-19 virus requires constant diligence,” said Kristy Earick, senior administrator of Troy Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center. “Our caregivers and staff are embracing this initiative and actively committing to practicing safety protocols when they are at home and in their communities in order to further protect their coworkers, residents and patients from disease transmission.”
