Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

An Update from MIHC’s Administrator Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Masters In Home Care (MIHC) is committed to helping Connecticut residents stay safe and healthy. We have specific procedures in place for staff and patients to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

What is MIHC doing to help in the fight against COVID-19?

The safety and health of our staff and patients are always a top priority at MIHC. Our staff are in the community every day and are always vigilant about protecting their—and their patients’—health.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, MIHC staff and home health aides have remained on the job, continuing to do the crucial work of keeping our patients healthy and at home in these challenging times!

Additionally, all staff are required to screen themselves every day to ensure they do not have a fever or other COVID-19 symptoms—or any other illness that might be passed along to patients or their families.  Masters promotes vaccination of our staff, patients, and community members.  We continue to follow guidance and recommendations as published by our state and the CDC.

What other steps is MIHC taking to keep patients and the community safe?

MIHC has been working with the Connecticut Department of Public Health, the CDC, and the Accreditation Commission for Health Care to make sure our patients, staff, and the community we serve are supported against COVID-19.

    • Education. All staff have been trained in minimizing the chances of their becoming infected with COVID-19 and transmitting infection to those they care for, as well as in identifying the symptoms, safety, and screening practices.
    • Communication. MIHC has created an emergency response system to provide the most up-to-date information to staff.
    • Collaboration. We are working closely with the Connecticut Department of Public Health, in addition to state and federal agencies and medical facilities, to make sure our procedures and guidelines reflect the most current medical information.
