How are you protecting residents and patients at Allied Services facilities?

As the region’s leading provider of healthcare and human services for individuals with disabilities, life-changing injuries and chronic illness, Allied Services is always ready to provide the highest quality care for our patients and residents. Ensuring the health and safety of our patients, residents and staff is our first priority; therefore, Allied Services is exercising every precaution to protect against coronavirus/COVID-19.

  • We continue to follow guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our infectious control and incident preparedness experts are closely monitoring developments and coordinating with national and local health authorities. Teams across Allied Services meet regularly to coordinate our response to the crisis including staff trained in infection control, supply chain management, human resources, and facilities management.
  • As providers of inpatient and long-term care, Allied Services is held to a very high safety standard when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting patient rooms, common areas and high touch surfaces. Under the guidance of the CDC and PA Department of Health, our environmental control teams have enhanced their routine cleaning procedures.
  • Preventative measures to protect residents, patients and staff include the screening of all employees working at our facilities; changes to patient care and daily activities to ensure greater social distancing; enhanced daily monitoring of patient health and well-being; adherence to CDC guidelines for personal protective equipment and infection control which includes proper gowning, masking and more.
  • We continue to follow Department of Health guideliness on visitation policy, and are communicating directly with families of patients and residents about the most current visitation policies. Visits to our Hospice Center are limited to immediate family only and all visitors are screened prior to entering the facility. See our current visitor policy.
