Our Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Preparation and Support

ASCP pharmacists represent a critical line of defense to our nation’s medically complex and older adult patients. Many of our patients live on congregate care environments. This makes them especially vulnerable to infectious diseases. Some of the reactions to COVID-19 are concerning. Our pharmacists and pharmacies provide important medication management services to skilled nursing and assisted living facilities routinely. There is concern that any personnel moving from location to location could contribute to a potential spread of infection. CMS has issued its strongest guidance regarding visitors and non-essential personnel for entrance into long-term care facilities.

Using publicly available information released by states and information sourced by members of these organizations, a general heat map has been created at a zip code level. This information is being provided to the public for use in identifying COVID-19 hot spots within the skilled nursing home industry. Visit ascp.com/heatmap to view the heat map.

Mark your calendar for these upcoming webinars. We will give you the latest information and guidance to help you stay on top of the information overload and get your facts from a trusted source, ASCP. All webinars are FREE and open to ALL health care professionals and students. There is no continuing education related to these webinars.
