Plan Assistance for Emergencies and Staffing Shortages

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission provides helpful information on this subject.

Long-term care providers must ensure their emergency plan is up-to-date. Staff must be aware of what to do in the event of any sort of emergency, including an outbreak of flu or COVID-19.

Providers are always required to provide services to residents or clients before, during, and after an emergency.

This is a free checklist provided by the Texas Health and Human Services Commision to assist agencies with creating a plan for dealing with an outbreak of flu or COVID-19.
