Many patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection require hospitalization, but most can be cared for at home. HP+ developed a new visual guide, COVID-19 Home-Based Quality Care: A Practical Guide for Healthcare Workers, to help healthcare workers educate patients, their families, and other household members on how to care for patients at home and prevent transmission of the virus. The guide also provides healthcare workers with information on caring for special conditions and identifying the need for timely referral to a hospital.
While written for healthcare workers, the guide is equally useful for personal use or when caring for a household member with COVID-19.
The guide is available for download in Spanish and English from the HP+ website as well.
