Your Medications and You gives us time with a pharmacist and helps us understand the role medications, supplements, over the counter medications and herbs have in cholesterol management.
Two primary guidelines:
- Cough into at tissue, your sleeve, arm, or shirt (not your hand) so that when you touch door knobs and handles you don’t spread germs.
- Washing hands frequently is a number one priority to help prevent the spread of germs. Washing hands thoroughly is always best; however, hand sanitizer is a good alternative.
We have the TeleDoc service under Florida Blue, and it’s FREE.
Please check with your department head first; however, we do have a section in our PTO policy on page two regarding Healthy Workplace Guidelines:
REQUESTING PTO AND HEALTHY WORKPLACE GUIDELINES – Time off for personal reasons other than emergencies, and illness, including doctor or dentist appointments, must be scheduled and approved by the manager in advance. Personal time off taken without the prior approval of the manager may result in discipline up to and including dismissal of the employee. The Company reserves the right to provide a safe and healthy work environment. Managers may send employees home that are exhibiting obvious signs of illness. (e.g. Excessive coughing, sneezing, runny nose, vomiting, etc.). Employees should use accrued PTO (if available) when sent home by management.
