5 Things Patients Need to Hear Right Now
With COVID-19 information and recommendations changing by the minute, patients need trusted, meaningful and timely education to help them live their healthiest lives.
While a patient may have proper handwashing and social distancing down pat at this point, they may know less about the importance of maintaining regular vaccinations. Or perhaps a patient may need some extra reassurance about the steps their provider is taking to keep them safe as they seek care for a chronic condition.
Now more than ever it is imperative that patients continue to manage their health and feel safe about going to their doctor.
Here are five messages patients need to be hearing from their healthcare provider right now:
1. Your Healthcare Facility Is Safe and Ready for You
2. Continue to Treat Chronic Conditions
Chronic conditions didn’t stop during COVID-19, and neither should their care.
3. Get Quick Care When You Need It
Acute issues such as heart attack and stroke are still occurring, and every moment counts when it comes to response time.
Urge patients not to delay care for these urgent issues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
4. Stay Up to Date on Vaccines and Screenings
Encourage patients to get caught up while reassuring them that their safety is a top priority.
5. Remain Vigilant
While COVID-19 may not have impacted a patient’s daily life, everyone needs to do their part to control the virus until a vaccine is available.
