Helping Hands Healthcare expands their offerings to include Viral Control & Infection Prevention services to businesses and organizations.

July 13, 2020 – Mississauga, ON: Helping Hands Healthcare has curated a comprehensive Viral Control and Infection Prevention (VC & IP) plan that is launching today, coinciding with the Ontario provincial government’s expansion into Stage 3 of their reopening plan. 

With the continued reopenings throughout Ontario, businesses of all sizes and disciplines are seeking assurance from healthcare professionals to ensure their operations meet and exceed appropriate health standards in order to protect their staff, clients and partners from exposure.  

The Viral Control and Infection Prevention program can help organizations review and validate existing cleanliness and sanitation measures in order to develop a comprehensive suite of guidelines to protect their businesses. This plan is scalable and accommodates to all sizes and variations of businesses, allowing various types of organizations to participate at competitive pricing. 

Helping Hands Healthcare has created a formula for successful client, staff and partner reintroduction, capacity management, exposure control and contingency planning, personal protective equipment necessities, movement flow, cleanliness protocols and risk mitigation. Each of these elements will be appraised during the initial site visits, and maintained, with audits of the locations and throughout the assessment of day to day business practices.

“There is a clear and pressing need in organizations that are opening their services back up, to make sure they have taken the appropriate measures to make their teams and customers safe and secure,” said Chris Albion, President and Managing Partner, Helping Hands Healthcare. “The Viral Control and Infection Prevention service is a natural extension of our core capabilities and a way to support organizations as they continue the hard work of preparing to reopen and maintain high standards,” added Albion.

Helping Hands Healthcare has years of experience managing viral control and infection prevention among the Company’s healthcare staff and clients, with the guidance of their team of clinical advisors, led by Nora Constas. The VC & IP protocols and guidelines will be tailored to fit each business or organization’s specific needs corresponding to the type of facility, staff and capacity, and will include monitoring, post implementation support and training.

The VC & IP Services will be accessible to many businesses such as, but not limited to:

  • Schools & Educational Facilities
  • Office Spaces of all Sizes
  • Gyms, Sporting and all Recreational Facilities
  • Shopping Malls & Stores
  • Attractions & Large Venues
  • Restaurants & Bars
  • Manufacturing & Shipping Facilities

“We believe businesses need to understand where their greatest risks and weaknesses are more than ever, to help avoid a second wave or an exposure in their facility,” said Albion. “Our VC & IP services will offer organizations affordable options for mitigating infection risk for all parties, ensure their staff is well trained and that their business is operating at peak health efficiency.”
