Adapting to the Changing Environment
In light of the current environment during the COVID-19 pandemic, here at STHCS, we have had to adjust the delivery of several of our programs. With stay-at-home orders and social distancing in effect, we adapted to how we are able to serve our rural community.
For our Cribs for Kids program, we are able to offer the safe sleep education as an online seminar. Previously, the education was delivered to crib recipients in person with them being able to take the Pack 'N' Play home with them following the training. Now, after completing the online training, we are able to ship a crib directly to the recipients home.
Additionally, through our Southern Tier Overdose Prevention Program which provides opioid overdose education and narcan, we are able to provide online training in order to ensure access to this program while also dealing with the pandemic.
Lastly, we have continued enrolling consumers on the NY State of Health marketplace by completing appointments over the phone. New Yorkers without health insurance can apply through NY State of Health through May 15, 2020 as the open enrollment period was extended.
If you would like anymore information regarding our programs, please contact me or give our office a call at (716) 372-0614.
It is with great sadness that I share with you that we lost a great EMT and current paramedic student this week. Daniel L. Boutwell, Sr., passed away on Friday, April 24, 2020, at his home, unexpectedly from a pulmonary embolism. He started his career at Trans Am Ambulance Services in 2010. Dan was currently attending classes here at Southern Tier Health Care System through the Regional Paramedic Program to become a paramedic. A memorial service will be held at a date and time to be announced after the pandemic restrictions are lifted. My thoughts are with his family and the providers who had the pleasure of working with Dan over the years.
