Receiving a COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure alert can be a frightening experience as patients and their loved ones navigate quarantining, any actual infection, treatment and the path for healing.
To help their patients who are either quarantining after exposure or recovering after infection practically and emotionally, Geisinger have taken to providing care packages in the hospital and at home.
The packages include a mask, handwritten “get well” card, coloring book and colored pencils, a few snacks, essential oil soap, hot/cold pack and stress-relieving tea. The package also includes informational content on self-treating at home, how to stay separate from household members and Geisinger’s 24/7 COVID-19 hotline.
