Augustine Amoafo, a CreStaf of Dallas team member recently returned from an extended trip to Africa.  He brought all of the office sdesigner sunglasses!  Thank you for your generosity Augustine!

Felicia Armstead, a CareStaf of Dallas CNA team member, contacted the office regarding a change in condition concern with the client she was caring for.  Upon hearing Felicia's concerns, Dorie went out to see the client.  Dorie determined the client needed to go to the hospital.  The client is doing fine now.  Thank you Felicia for following proper procedure in reporting the change of condition of her client.

Coming soon

CareStaf keeps up with new technology when it makes sense.  We have made the transition to payroll debit cards as well as Direct Deposit options for our field staff.  Please bare with us during our phase in period. Our hope is these new payroll options will save you time and gas money.  Additionally, this should allow our staffing coordinators to have more time finding work for you and filling client orders!  A win win!

CareStaf is now texting clients' open needs via text.  There are many challenges to overcome due to the way every phone carrier manages their text and email features on smart phones.  Unfortunately this creates a bit of challege for us to both send and recieve texts. Please help us out by only responding to a text if you are interested.  Include your name, day time, and the shift/assignment you want to accept in the body of your text.  If you are unsure of the sttus of your response, please feel free to call us at your earliest conveience for clarification.

CDC EBOLA PREVENTION INFORMATION

This information comes straight from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

There is no FDA-approved vaccine available for Ebola.

If you travel to or are in an area affected by an Ebola outbreak, make sure to do the following:

  • Practice careful hygiene. For example, wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and avoid contact with blood and body fluids.
  • Do not handle items that may have come in contact with an infected person's blood or body fluids (such as clothes, bedding, needles, and medical equipment).
  • Avoid funeral or burial rituals that require handling the body of someone who has died from Ebola.
  • Avoid contact with bats and nonhuman primates or blood, fluids, and raw meat prepared from these animals.
  • Avoid hospitals in West Africa where Ebola patients are being treated. The U.S. embassy or consulate is often able to provide advice on facilities.
  • After you return, monitor your health for 21 days and seek medical care immediately if you developsymptoms of Ebola.

Healthcare workers who may be exposed to people with Ebola should follow these steps:

  • Wear protective clothing, including masks, gloves, gowns, and eye protection.
  • Practice proper infection control and sterilization measures. For more information, see "Infection Control for Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers in the African Health Care Setting".
  • Isolate patients with Ebola from other patients.
  • Avoid direct contact with the bodies of people who have died from Ebola.
  • Notify health officials if you have had direct contact with the blood or body fluids, such as but not limited to, feces, saliva, urine, vomit, and semen of a person who is sick with Ebola. The virus can enter the body through broken skin or unprotected mucous membranes in, for example, the eyes, nose, or mouth.
There is no FDA-approved vaccine available for Ebola at this time.
