We’re Here for You

In the growing fight against the coronavirus, we know our travel nurses have the collective backs of America. You are on the front line every day, treating patients and saving lives.

We want you to know that while you have our back, we have yours. One thing we don’t want you worrying about is what happens if you’re required to quarantine.

If you are a GHR Travel Nurse on contract and you are required to quarantine as a result of your assignment, we will continue to pay your contracted hours, your food and lodging stipend, and maintain your benefits coverage for the duration of your quarantine, up to fourteen days.

More details:

  • GHR Travel Nurses are expected to self-monitor their health for signs of any symptoms and immediately seek medical attention should they occur.
  • If, for any reason, you are seen by a physician as a result of coronavirus type symptoms and are cleared, you must show a doctor’s note to return to work.
  • If the facility requires you to quarantine, we will require documentation of that requirement.
  • If you are required to quarantine, immediately notify your GHR Travel Nursing recruiter and follow all facility call-off procedures.
  • You will continue to be covered by your selected GHR Travel Nursing health insurance so long as you remain on contract.

At GHR Travel Nursing, we remain dedicated to your ongoing safety and success.  So while you care for the world, we’ll care for you.

Thank you for all you do and please, stay safe.

 

Important COVID-19 Information to Know:

Given the uncertainty of the coronavirus issue and the rapidly evolving situation, we understand things will change and may impact your day-to-day activities. We encourage all of our team members to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidance to help prevent the spread of the virus, stay safe and make sound decisions.

To that end, the following are the current CDC recommendations and best practices to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wearing a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
