Thanks in part to established partnerships with local hospital systems, state and county health departments, and various support agencies, Lancaster Rehabilitation Center was prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic long before it hit local and national airwaves.
But a large part of the transition kudos belong to its resolute and proactive leaders.
Associate Administrator Jen Graff was awarded the Heroes Work Here on April 9th in recognition of her commitment to ensuring the safety of residents and staff-always the top priority at Lancaster Rehab.
“There was a job to be done, and we had just the person to do it.” Administrator Amy Fish said. “Jen rose to the challenge and worked alongside a strong team of leaders. Her commitment and dedication to our mission is commended and appreciated.”
Around March 10th, Lancaster Rehab implemented new best practices to safeguard the facility against the new coronavirus. With Fish away attending a conference, Graff took the lead on initial action steps.
Some key steps Graff implemented included the implementation of a timeline of the training, education, and supplies available for use; process implementation of a staff screening tool; collection of resources, policies, and guidance from the many resources called upon to support our operation; and the inventory and security of necessary personal protective equipment (PPE).
Congratulation Jen for a job well done!
