Caliber is Open for Business.
All locations Caliber operates in are open and fully functional.
We’d like to reassure you that Caliber operations have been designated by the Governors’ offices in all states as critical infrastructure, and we continue to operate even in restricted areas.
We want to do all we can to keep you informed as the efforts to slow the spread of coronavirus continue.
Caliber is Built for Healthcare.
This means our number one priority is the health and safety of all the members of our community.
We know you have questions and I want to personally assure you that we are monitoring the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) closely. We are consulting health experts and monitoring expert recommendations, including guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, and local health officials.
Beyond simply monitoring the situation, we are taking active measures to make sure those under your care are safe and secure. Caliber’s standards remain the same:
Gloves with every patient, every time
Additional PPE as needed
Medical-grade disinfectant used between every stretcher patient, every time Disposable linens for every stretcher transfer
Routine cleanings of vehicles’ exteriors and interiors
During this time of uncertainty, in addition to our standards of care, we’re also:
Triaging and screening in-home patients
Triaging and screening all staff in all locations, including questionnaire and temperature checks
Requiring surgical masks for both driver and patient if symptomatic Mandatory time-out for staff who present with symptoms
Mandatory testing for staff who present with COVID-19 specific symptoms
Health and safety are all of our responsibilities. We encourage everyone to practice safety measures at home, work, and when out. Wash your hands with soap and water frequently, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your elbow if you have to sneeze or cough, and please stay home if you are sick. Take measures to avoid unnecessary contact with large crowds and confined gatherings of people to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
We thank you for your continued support, and we will continue to keep you informed as we take additional action.
