Safety Is Our Number One Concern

During this unprecedented health crisis, Holy Redeemer is committed to the safety of our patients, residents, and staff. We are working closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Health, The New Jersey Department of Health, as well as the local municipalities.

Our LifeCare communities aggressively enforce all safety measures in accordance with federal, state and county mandates to protect patients, residents, and staff. These include:

  • Following strict infection control protocols, including provision and proper use of necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all staff and residents
  • Cleaning and disinfecting twice daily
  • Assessing staff on entering and exiting our facilities for any signs of the virus, including temperature elevation
  • Assessing residents twice daily for any signs of the virus
  • Testing staff and residents for the coronavirus

Additionally, to keep residents and patients safe, we are not permitting visitors at any of our residential and long-term care facilities, with the exception of those individuals who have a family member in hospice care nearing end of life. These patients are permitted one (1) visitor. Please contact the facility directly for more information.

“The recommendations regarding the approach to coronavirus both nationally and in our community are changing daily. We remain vigilant and are prepared to respond. Our goal is to keep our patients and healthcare workers safe and provide the highest quality care,” says Dr. Henry Unger, Chief Medical Officer and Emergency Medicine Physician at Holy Redeemer Hospital.

For more information about COVID-19, visit the CDC or the PA Department of Health websites.
