After any possible Covid-19 exposure our crews decontaminate themselves as well as our ambulances and equipment following a strict decontamination process set forth by the NYS Department of Health. Our processes include spraying and wiping down all equipment and the inside of the ambulance with a decontamination solution as well as using a UV light sterilization process to sterilize our equipment and the inside of the ambulance
Our providers are following all of the current CDC guidance utilizing N-95 masks, eye protection and gloves on every call to ensure we stay protected and protect you while providing care. If a patient is confirmed to have Covid-19 or is experiencing Covid-19 symptoms we also will be wearing a disposable gown or coveralls
We also have recently acquired several PAPR respirator hoods for our providers to wear while treating patients.
