the importance of rapid results testing for healthcare worker
Knowing what we know about the impact of COVID19 on both nursing home residents and the health care workers who serve them, Dr. Grabowski will share his thoughts on the future of large bed nursing home facilities.
In addition, in the present climate, many people are opting to return home for therapy and care after hospitalization.
