All elderly people with symptoms receiving home care and all accommodation at elderly homes with symptoms in Västernorrland are tested. What does it look like with protective material to me if I want to start as a substitute and someone with the elderly has symptoms of Corona or found Corona.

Do I dare to work in Home Care And Elderly Care in Timrå EllerSundsvall?

Yes, almost everyone who has symptoms in home care or living in elderly homes is tested. Protective equipment for the staff is available right now. But constant efforts are being made to obtain equipment. Protective equipment is given priority to those who care for those who have symptoms. / Hans Boman, infection control physician.
