There is no higher priority to our entire Aberdeen Place Hospice Family than the safety of our patients, their families, the communities we serve and our employees. 

As such, we are following these preventive actions recommended by the CDC and the GA DPH to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:

  1. Monitoring our current employees on a daily basis for elevated temperature, cough and/or shortness of breath
  2. Reminding employees to follow the CDC infection control recommendations to:
    • Wash their hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based (60% or greater) hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
    • Avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Cover their cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Stay home if they are sick.
  3. Requiring employees to immediately report any concerns regarding exposure to COVID-19 to a supervisor, whether the potential exposure has occurred through providing patient care, travel, assisting an ill traveler or other person, handling a contaminated object, or cleaning a contaminated environment,
  4. Monitoring and abiding by visitation restrictions put in place by our communities to essential Hospice personnel only

Aberdeen Place Hospice is fortunate that our Medical Director, Dr. John Maloney, is the former Head of Infectious Diseases at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital and can advise us as this situation develops.

We are monitoring this developing situation closely with State and Federal agencies including the GA DPH, the GA Region D Healthcare Coalition, CMS and the CDC. In the meantime, if we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to talk to your Customer Relations Manager or RN Case Manager. Of course, you can always reach us at 678-878-3440 24-hours a day.
