BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR OUR PATIENTS


MEDICAL AND HAZARDOUS WASTE GUIDELINES

MEDICATION SAFETY

Medicines cure infectious diseases, prevent problems from chronic diseases, and alleviate pain and suffering for millions of Americans every day.

HAND HYGIENE

Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

Keeping Older Americans and People with Disabilities Safe and Healthy during Emergencies.

HOSPICE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

An individual must be entitled to Part A of Medicare and certified as being terminally ill by a physician and having a prognosis of 6 months or less if the disease runs its normal course.

MEDICARE HOSPICE INSURANCE

Hospice care is usually given in your home but may also be covered in a hospice inpatient facility. Depending on your terminal illness and related conditions.

IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT FALL

Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, one out of three older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.
