As universities nationwide plan for the upcoming fall semester, they are tasked with deciding on best practices and protocols to implement for COVID-19 safety. Vessel Medical, a medical supply firm specializing in personal protective equipment, has a new safety program specifically designed to equip universities with the latest in medical supplies, testing, and monitoring services — delivering an optimum line of defense against COVID-19. To protect students, faculty and staff for the upcoming fall semester, major universities across the state of South Carolina have already turned to Vessel Medical for their comprehensive, customizable COVID-19 safety program, MDHealthPro Opening Up America Again. These universities now have an effective safety strategy in place tailored to their specific reopening needs.
The MDHealthPro Opening Up America Again program is designed for universities large and small to implement appropriate policies in accordance with federal, state, and local guidance and regulations. The program ensures the most effective measures are taken for testing, contact tracing, social distancing, isolating, temperature checks, protective equipment, sanitation and disinfection of common high-traffic areas. Having this proficiently customized strategy in place will ensure that collegiate institutions across the country have the right amount of quality protection supplies, monitoring technology and testing, performed by Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), one of the country’s leading commercial laboratories for COVID-19 testing, all readily available for their faculty, staff and students when needed.
“We want to help universities to assure their employees and students that the best safety precautions are being taken against COVID-19 as they return to the classroom,” said Kevin Murdock, founder of Vessel Medical and Premier Medical Laboratory Services. “We hope to take some of the fear and confusion away from the reopening process while helping with the latest methods to keep schools healthy, safe, and able to fully focus on education.”
The MDHealthPro Opening Up America Again program includes three components:
The testing component equips universities with high-complexity diagnostic testing for COVID-19 and a 24-48 hour turnaround of results. The Sars-Cov-2 package of testing also includes antibody testing (IgG/IgM Elisa) and rapid testing (POC IgG/IgM kits). Both testing packages include daily courier pickup/UPS next day, collection devices, other ancillary supplies and a certification letter of faculty, staff and student testing.
The safety component provides PPE and other supplies, including Level 1 triple-layer washable cloth masks that can be customized with a school logo, N95 masks, disinfectants, gloves and gowns.
The monitoring component delivers entry point monitoring of faculty, staff and students’ temperature by way of forehead thermometer devices or infrared digital fever detection using thermal imaging and monitoring systems.
Vessel Medical is dedicated to supporting universities that implement the MDHealthPro Opening Up America Program. From onboarding of the program to continuous technical support and advisement, Vessel Medical will ensure that schools can always prioritize education and be assured they have the latest in safety measures, technology, and testing to keep their staff and students safe.
