AHRC Suffolk COVID-19 Policy and Procedure Binder Sample
In response to OPWDD's increasing
COVID-19 Prevention and Control Review of OPWDD Certified Residences, several Chapters have developed audit preparation materials. AHRC Suffolk developed a COVID-19 policy and procedure binder. The Chapter provides a copy to each IRA and ICF. The binder is used to educate staff on agency and OPWDD protocols in preparation for any audits. The binder also includes some useful nursing services documents. The Chapter has recently experienced some OPWDD surveys and the outcomes were very positive. Having the protocols available to staff certainly helped the Chapter obtain these positive outcomes.
This document is best used as a reference for how you might establish your own binder. Chapters should not simply adopt the contents of this document, as OPWDD's health advisories and protocols are frequently updated and some of the material included may have changed.
We very much appreciate the AHRC Suffolk Chapter sharing this information.
