COVID-19 Education for Patients


The people most likely to develop severe complications from COVID-19 are probably the majority of the patients on your current census. Most will meet one or more of the risk factors that make severe cases of COVID-19 more likely.

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • over 65

Since most of your regular home health patients are at high risk for complications if infected with COVID-19, providing education for patients now can help relieve anxiety and make sure they know what to do if faced with symptoms or a COVID-19 diagnosis. As home health providers it is essential that we continue to bridge the gap for our homebound patients to protect our most vulnerable population.

Using this tool can help clinicians educate every patient on your census.
