Trinity Rehab Services understands our success starts with our partners’ success.
Infection control and prevention are the critical factors in defending against COVID-19. Adequate infection control and prevention relies heavily on front line staff education and understanding of best practices. Moving forward, visitors and volunteers will also need to understand how to help keep our residents safe.
