COVID - 19 Updates
Steps we are taking to protect you.
Peace of mind is important. At Lincare, we take our responsibility as a partner in your care very seriously, and our commitment to patient safety remains a top priority. Our mission at this challenging time is to help the people in our communities overcome the impacts of COVID-19.
Lincare employs strenuous infection control protocols to ensure that your safety and well-being remain intact. Lincare’s safety measures meet each of the four CDC requirements, when necessary:
1. Proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
2. Disposing protocols for PPE
3. Alcohol-based hand rubs
4. N95 respirator-fitting for employees
For all patients, we utilize the same universal precautions practiced by your physician and hospitals.
We also remain committed to providing superior service with:
• 24/7 availability
• In-person home delivery
• Ongoing clinical support from licensed clinicians
Many of our patients possess risk factors from existing chronic illnesses, compromised immune systems, and/or age; therefore, we encourage all patients, caregivers, and family members to review best practices to minimize risk and slow the progression of the COVID-19 virus by visiting www.CDC.gov.
If you have concerns with your delivery services, please contact your local service center.
