Please note that NVNA and Hospice is not yet able to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in homes. We are in constant communication with the state and are in the early stages of a dialogue on how to vaccinate our own patients. More information will be released as it becomes available.
NVNA and Hospice remains committed to upholding the highest safety standards for both our patients and employees.
- We continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) as new changes arise.
- All our clinicians use personal protective equipment (PPE) and our focus remains on infection control.
- We have mitigated the challenges of securing PPE and monitor our inventory daily.
- NVNA and Hospice colleagues and volunteers were invited to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in January 2021.
- All employees are screened daily before beginning a shift.
For Pat Roche Hospice Home Families
Please note that visitors are welcome at the Pat Roche Hospice home (after being screened) between the hours of 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Visitors are asked to wear a mask for their entire visit. We continue to keep common spaces closed (family suites, tea room, music room, family kitchen, etc.), use hand hygiene on arrival, and screen visitors before entry.
