A team of frontline nurses and home health aides for Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), with offices in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, has recently begun receiving the COVID 19 vaccine because they provide direct care to clients in their homes. PHHC provides medical and non-medical care to pediatric, adult, and senior clients; and strictly adheres to all CDC guidelines to keep clients safe at home.
Stephanie Kulak, MSN, RN, corporate clinical director of PHHC, worked with Nancy Fitterer, president and CEO of Home Care & Hospice Association of N.J., and the N.J. Department of Health to arrange the vaccinations with the New Jersey Preferred offices.
Kulak said, “We have five vaccination clinics set up so far (Galloway, Mt. Laurel, Toms River, Elmwood Park, and North Brunswick) and will schedule more as soon as possible. We are one of only four home care agencies providing this service to our health care providers in the community setting. Preferred is honored to offer this service to our employees.”
