Continuous Critical Care During COVID-19 for Rocky Flats Retirees
Denver, CO – Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Nuclear Care Partners remains committed to continuous care and reducing the risk of exposure for our patients.
Now more than ever, Nuclear Care Partners’ in-home care services play a critical role in the health and safety of former Rocky Flats workers—a vulnerable population filled with many who are facing various lung diseases and cancer as a result of their workplace exposure.
“To continue this needed in-home care, our care teams are taking extra safety precautions and have been equipped with the necessary critical supplies to lessen the risk of transmission and keep our patients as safe as possible,” said Lori Shanks, local Community Outreach Manager.
“We are well-staffed and prepared with the proper personal protective equipment to care for our patients, whether they are COVID-19 positive or presumptive positive. We will continue to stand by our patients and care for them in their greatest time of need.”
Our care teams can help keep former atomic workers safe, healthy, and limit their exposure by:
- Monitoring Patients’ Health
Our care teams routinely monitor patients’ health and record any new symptoms, quickly reporting any major changes to their physician(s) and helping coordinate care without the patient leaving the house, if possible.
- Breathing Exercises
Our nurses help our patients perform breathing exercises to keep their lungs as healthy as possible.
- Educating the Family
Making sure patient families are educated on the best practices to keep our patients safe is a key role of our nurses.
- Ordering Medical Supplies & Medication
Our staff can help arrange for the delivery of necessary medical supplies, medications, and other durable medical equipment related to our patients’ approved conditions.
- Continuity of Care
Our care teams coordinate with other medical providers and doctors to ensure continuity of care. We are committed to consistency and will maintain regular home visits based on our patients’ level of need.
