    Ways of Reporting COVID-19 Using IVR

    March 24, 2020

    To all our True Caregivers:

    We want to continue to thank you for being on the front line everyday when you show up to care for your clients. It is important that we care for everyone in this time of need. We want to remind you of what you should look for when caring for your clients during this time.

    What to look for or ask your clients:

    1.  Ask or observe if the client’s condition regarding upper respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, sore throat, fever, or shortness of breath)

    2.  Ask the patient, “Have you traveled to a country with a travel restriction due to coronavirus within the past 14 days?”

    3.  Ask the patient, “Have you had contact with any suspected or confirmed individuals with COVID-19?”

    If you answer Yes, to any of these questions above, it’s important that you report right away! Here is how you can report:

    1.  Call 929-474-9322, our Coronavirus Emergency Hotline and leave a message.

    2.  Call your Coordinator

    3.  Use the new IVR codes to report when clocking out.

    New IVR Codes:

    994Patient exposed to persons suspected or confirmed positive for coronavirus 
    995Patient traveled to country with widespread coronavirus in the past 14 days
