FINDING A COVID NORMAL
As a COVIDSafe Organisation, DCV have been providing support services throughout the COVID19 pandemic. Every DCV worker follows our organisational COVIDSafe plans, as well as COVIDSafe plans that have been developed specifically for our clients receiving support in the home.
DCV specialises in providing Complex Care to those with any type of Disability, including those diagnosed with COVID19 and have ample PPE on hand at all times in order to provision safe support services the day you need them.
All DCV protocols are in line, or stricter, than the DHHS recommended standards. Below you will find more information about thesteps to ease restrictions that DCV will be aligning our services with.
To better support DCV Clients & Workers, DCV have introduced an online platform for all of our workers to order the PPE they need to be delivered directly to their door. Orders are placed by workers on demand and are received via express post from our supplier. The level of PPE recevied is based on the type of supports our worker is provided, and includes face masks & a face shield as a minimum.
All DCV workers have been attesting to their health by submitting a pre-shift COVID checklist at the beginning of each day they work, we began this process at the onset of the second Victorian Lockdown - ahead of requests from the NDIS to implement this process
All DCV confirm they have appropriate PPE for the shifts scheduled
PPE is provisioned directly to the workers door, on-demand, via express post.
Immediate action is taken by DCV Head Office if a worker indicates they are unfit for work, including the sourcing & provisioning of a new worker to the client to ensure no-one goes without the support they need
All DCV workers have access to instant communications with our office to ensure advice is constantly available
DCV have COVIDSafe plans in place across Metro & Regional Victoria, ensuring all DCV workers understand the steps needed to keep a client safe in their home and limit the chance of infection spreading or being introduced.
