Several states now require regular testing of staff in long-term care facilities (nursing homes and assisted living), with more to follow suit.For instance, New York nursing homes and adult care facilities must test staff for COVID-19 twice a week.
Also, New Jersey issued a similar testing directive for long-term care facilities. Connecticut and Pennsylvania are finalizing similar plans.
Nursing Home Testing Compliance
Mobile Health’s COVID-19 Screening Program helps nursing homes comply with new testing regulations.
Our trained medical workers deliver the following services on-site at your facility or one of our New York clinics:
- Temperature Screenings: Ensures employees/visitors don’t show symptoms of COVID-19.
- COVID-19 PCR Testing: The nasal swab tests employees/visitors for active infection. Consequently, an employer, with a relative degree of certainty, can determine if an employee/visitor is currently infected with COVID-19. Results returned within 24-48 hours.
- Antibody Testing: Tests employees for previous infection and possible immunity. Antibodies tell you if a person has been exposed in the past to COVID-19. Results returned within two to three days.
- Record of Results: Download staff test results from our client portal.
If you complete our COVID-19 Request Form, we will contact you within 24 hours to customize a screening program to meet your facility’s needs.
