A new startup is helping businesses adjust to the new health safety measures recommended by government agencies.
HealthBaar is offering a team of contracted registered nurses and nurse practitioners to employers in West Michigan who can provide different services in their workplace on a la carte basis or as a package.
“The health care field is changing and that (does) not only pertain to how services are provided but also how clinicians are employed,” HealthBaar said. “Nontraditional shifts, flexible work environments and freelance opportunities will transform the clinical world. Decentralizing services provided within the four walls of a hospital will also allow patients the opportunity to ‘consume’ health care more conveniently and not be exposed to the hospital environment.”
The health services that are offered include workplace evaluations for social distancing during operations, personal protective equipment supplies and temperature screenings that are conducted by clinicians.
“We currently have a combination of 40 registered nurses and nurse practitioners signed up to work for HealthBaar,” said Nathan Baar, founder and CEO of HealthBaar.
Temperature screenings will be conducted by RNs and NPs prior to entry into the workplace, and those health professionals can perform a visual assessment of employees.
Nurses also can conduct COVID-19 antibody testing. The test kits will be ordered through Alliant Healthcare Products. HealthBaar employees can offer infection prevention/office space consultations.
Businesses can obtain PPE through HealthBaar’s supplier, and employers can have access to medical advice from clinicians whenever it is needed.
