On November 3, 2014, Walgreens located at 508 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Blvd. in East Orange is coming to Isaiah House! Thanks to the outreach efforts of our nurse, Valeska Cromwell, RN and the generosity of Walgreens employees Monica Spencer and Ibram Atalia, Walgreens will be providing on-site flu vaccines to the residents of Isaiah House. This coordinated effort allows all of our youth to obtain flu vaccines in-house and all at one shot (no pun intended). As an added bonus, Walgreens is also providing a select group of our staff with flu vaccines without the co-pay charge! This is what community cohesiveness is all about. Thank you so much to Walgreens and Nurse V for making this happen!
On November 13, 2014, Isaiah House nurse, Valeska Cromwell will be conducting an in-service to address and review Universal Precautions vs. Standard Precautions in light of the recently introduced Ebola virus to the U.S. and NJ specifically.
