Springbrook has arranged two flu clinic locations to serve employees. Prevention is a key component to staying healthy as flu season is upon us!
Flu clinics will take place at the following locations:
Friday, October 11 – 12 pm until 3 pm in the Nursing Wing of the School Building
Monday, November 4 – 11 am until 1 pm in the Nursing Wing of the School Building
Tuesday, November 5 – 11 am until 1 pm in Training Room 203 of the Oneonta Community Campus
November 7 – 2 pm until 4 pm in the cafeteria of the Oneonta Community Campus
There is no cost for the flu shot (please bring your insurance card with you) and appointments are not necessary. Walk in, get your shot, walk out…there are plenty of doses available!
Also, as we approach flu season, we continue to follow last year’s recommendation of a five day isolation period to reduce the spread of disease. After 5 days with no new exposure, individuals can return to their respective programs. Please contact Jessica Weston, Brooke Leech, or Kathy Ramiza when there is a diagnosed case of flu in a staff person or individual, or when known exposure has occurred (such as during a home visit). We can notify the groups necessary to minimize exposure.
Please minimize community activities during the isolation period – appointments and van rides would be the only house activities recommended. Staff should wear masks when there is a risk of exposure and when isolation is in place. Training and maintenance activities in the house should be delayed, if possible, until after the isolation period.
If you have any questions about the flu clinics or Springbrook’s flu protocol, please contact Kathy Ramiza, Chief Clinical Officer.
