Is Your Care Home Covered for Covid and Flu?

Long-term care homes have a great burden and responsibility; protecting and caring for our elderly day-in, day-out. As we enter flu season, day to day care becomes more challenging as individual care homes must do what they can to ensure the health and safety of both residents and staff. 

By increasing safety measures, you can ensure peace of mind for all parties, reduce disruption to the smooth daily operation of the care home, and reduce the costs that occur during staff and resident sickness.

SQI Diagnostics offer a range of premium, highly-accurate COVID-19 and flu testing solutions that are fast and easy to use.
