As COVID-19 accelerates, nursing home visiting restrictions have increased pressures on providers, health systems, and operators to treat virtually 24/7/365. While the coronavirus is a physical health illness, it has significant mental health implications. The uncertainty posed by a public health emergency can cause stress and anxiety among many individuals.
Hospitals and SNF operators have a significant interest in keeping seniors out of ERs. The increased anxiety has escalated the need for mental health services. In response, Thrive Behavioral Sciences implemented COVID-19 emergency measures that includes extension of telehealth services.
The use of telehealth can be a vital tool to remotely examine, screen and assess persons for COVID-19. Florida law authorizes licensed health care practitioners to practice telehealth if such methods are used in a manner that is consistent with their profession’s acceptable practices and standard of care.
