We converted a vacated Day Program space into a Temporary Emergency Respite/Recovery unit under leadership of Sebastian Chittilappilly, VP of Day Programs & Vocational Services.  This has a capacity of 9 beds for COVID-19 individuals discharged from hospitals to complete their 14-day quarantine and to fully recover.

This unit has been operational since March 27, 2020 and here is an update as of April 16, 2020:   
Bed Capacity: 9
Total admission: 17
Total discharges: 9                      

To support the staff working at this special unit, we've expanded our Telemedicine coverage by purchasing additional equipment.  Under the leadership of Nurse James Cox (Nick), he trained 15 “new staff “.  Staff working at this unit are mostly those deployed from other divisions, with no previous experience in using the Telemedicine system.  The current Telemedicine service provides remote access to Physicians for evaluation and management for Acute Medical complaints.  Work is in progress to link the Recovery unit to the Primary Care Service and Specialists at Metro Community Health Center for management of Chronic Medical conditions and follow up care.  It is anticipated to be up and running by first week of May.

The Telemedicine service to MCHC is expected to continue linking up the Day Program participants to their PCPs and Specialists beyond the ending of the Pandemic.  It is also designed to link all the residential homes to MCHC and reduce the need for in person clinic visits for elective routine care and follow up.
