Hope to End the Pandemic Is Here! We Thank Our Partners for Helping Speed COVID-19 Vaccine Coverage Among our Staff
Like all health care organizations, The Denver Hospice is excited and relieved that our staff who interact with patients are finally able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Recently, one of our employees, Roman Pivacek, shared his experience getting the vaccine.
“I got the vaccine to do my part to protect, number one, my family and, number two, the community in which I work in. I feel it was a very safe and painless process, and I currently feel great. And I’m hoping for better days for all of us moving forward, especially the residents in the facilities in which I work,” said Roman.
As a Community Liaison, Roman works with staff and families in a number of long-term care facilities where many of our patients live. These facilities are among the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccines, and we are grateful that these cherished partners are offering The Denver Hospice employees who work in their buildings the vaccines along with their own staff.
Roman received his COVID-19 vaccine at the Garden Terrace Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, a nursing home in Aurora. He said his arm was a bit sore from the shot for a couple of days, but he experienced no other symptoms.
Once again, we’d like to thank our partners who have offered vaccines to The Denver Hospice staff. We join with you in prioritizing the health and safety of patients and working toward an end to this pandemic.
