One of the challenges of providing medical treatment during a pandemic is finding a way to ensure that medical staff remain healthy so, in turn, they can continue to provide treatment to patients.
This was a concern for Cure 4 The Kids Foundation as the COVID-19 outbreak became a reality. As the state’s only pediatric cancer treatment center, keeping treatments on schedule is essential to provide patients with the best possible outcomes.
That’s why Cure 4 The Kids Foundation created an in-house commissary. It allows medical staff to stay away from grocery and retail stores where they were more likely to come in contact with a virus, while also meeting the staff’s need to provide food and other items for their own families.
The items are provided at no-cost to medical staff. The clinic views the commissary as part of an infection control measure which, ultimately, adds to the clinic’s ability to continue serving patients.
