NEW YORK, May 18, 2020 – Heed Health, a full-service Employer COVID-19 testing and monitoring platform, in response to the governments recent directive to test nursing home staff twice per week for Coronavirus, is announcing a full- service onsite testing solution for nursing homes in the Northeast. Heed Health has stood at the forefront of employee testing and is now pleased to offer its testing and monitoring program to nursing homes and other home service
Brian Stern, CEO of Heed Health, commented, “As we work to get America back to work, it’s imperative we look to protect everyone, especially our at-risk populations. By providing our solution directly to nursing homes, senior care, and other home assistance or assisted living organizations, we work with employers to minimize risk within these more vulnerable populations.”
Nursing homes have a demonstrable responsibility to ensure the safety of their residents and the challenges of operating a nursing home and other home-based care during the COVID-19 global pandemic are significant. Heed Health is proud to be in the unique position to address many of the “return to work” issues concerning owners and
managers of nursing homes. The Heed Health program can offer both initial antibody and PCR testing, as well as symptom tracking, and continued interval testing and monitoring.
“The best science is constantly evolving during a crisis like this and it is difficult for employers to be expected to stay updated on their own” said Dr. Daniel Sahlein, Chief Scientific Officer of Heed Health. “We use our panel of leading scientists and physicians to steer our clients through this process and keep them current on best practices. We are now pleased to offer this service to the nursing home and assisted living communities”
