Friends in Health/Amigos en Salud,

 

In order to provide services to our patients during the ongoing pandemic of Covid-19, Gennesaret is now offering Telehealth as a Clinic option.  I have done sessions on Wednesday Nights from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM and while it has not been busy, it has been steady.  I am interested in enlisting volunteers, if anyone is interested in working those times, please let me know.

 

We are using the doxy.me platform and can always use translators and individuals to take medical histories.  We have a line (800) 696-1511 for patients to call.  A bilingual person from Gennesaret (Sayda Diaz-Orellana) will answer and register the patient and then we can call them bac by pone or use doxy.me to have a virtual visit.  Someone from Gennesaret will deliver any meds that need to be provided to patients.  Please let me know if you are interested.

 

The Clinic itself will open once we have PPE and cleaning procedures in place.  No date has been announced for that but I suspect some time in July.  I will see if we can put something in the bulletin.  Thanks.

 

Para proporcionar servicios a nuestros pacientes durante la pandemia de Covid-19, Gennesaret ahora ofrece “Tele salud” como una opción clínica. He realizado sesiones los miércoles por la noche de 7:00 p.m. a 10:00 p.m. y, aunque no ha estado ocupado, ha sido constante. Estoy interesado en reclutar voluntarios, si alguien está interesado en trabajar en esos momentos, hágamelo saber.

 

Estamos usando la plataforma doxy.me y siempre podemos usar traductores. Tenemos una línea (800) 696-1511 para los pacientes para llamar. Una persona bilingüe de Gennesaret (Sayda Diaz-Orellana) responderá y registrará al paciente y luego podemos llamarlo por teléfono o usar doxy.me para hacer una visita virtual. Alguien de Gennesaret entregará cualquier medicamento que deba proporcionarse a los pacientes. Por favor hazme saber si estas interesado.

 

La Clínica se abrirá una vez que tengamos “PPE” y procedimientos de limpieza. No se ha anunciado una fecha para eso, pero sospecho que en algún momento de julio. Yo veré se puedo poner algo en el boletín.
