The health and safety of Quality of Life Health Services, Inc. (QOLHS) employees, patients, and visitors remains our top priority. The Alabama Department of Public Health is working to prepare for possible COVID-19 occurrences in Alabama. QOLHS abides by all recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), are monitoring local developments, and continue to take all appropriate precautions.
Mass gatherings of any kind present a risk of exposure to illnesses. Public safety is strengthened when everyone complies with good hygiene practices. The CDC recommends specific actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases and QOLHS encourages everyone to follow their guidance:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
• Stay home when sick
• Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw tissue in the trash
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
• Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
• If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol
QOLHS adhere to all recommendations by the CDC for cleaning and disinfecting public areas. These sanitation protocols also cover any areas with an increased probability of germs being exchanged or left on surfaces such as door handles, handrails, elevator buttons, counter tops, tables, desks, light switches, etc. As a standard practice, QOLHS and contracted staff members are also trained on bloodborne pathogen protocols.
