Thanks to a partnership with Absolute Pharmacy and Absolute Home Health , which , along with Altercare , are part of The Schroer Group , residents at Altercare centers can access the monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-related illness .
Bamlanivimab is FDA-authorized for emergency use as treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in patients at high risk of developing severe illness requiring hospitalization .
The infusion therapy is administered via IV and requires approximately one hour of staff monitoring . Due to the intensive staff requirements , the treatment is not typically available onsite at skilled nursing facilities .
“ It ’ s good to have a vaccine to offer to our patients to prevent them from contracting COVID-19 , but now having a prescribed treatment for positive cases will allow us to treat in-house and reduce the potential of hospitalization ,” said Kevin Fearon , R . Ph ., COO of

Absolute Pharmacy .
Absolute Pharmacy , which was selected by federal entities to receive initial supplies of Bamlanivimab , will manage and supply the drug and infusion supplies including emergency drugs in case of reaction . Absolute Home Health will support the effort by providing a dedicated nurse infusion team to Altercare centers to administer the IV treatment and monitor patients following the infusion . Altercare staff will coordinate the treatment schedule and provide additional clinical support .
“ Families can rest easy knowing that if an at-risk loved one contracts COVID-19 , Altercare has access to this life-saving treatment and the ability to
deliver it here within the walls of our centers ,” said Deanna Hatfield , chief nursing officer at Altercare . “ We are pleased to incorporate the infusion therapy into our COVID-19 abatement efforts to ensure the population we serve is provided quality care in a safe environment .”
This treatment is the latest addition in Altercare ’ s total-preparedness approach to COVID- 19 management . The company also recently completed the installation of a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization airpurification system at every Altercare center . This investment provides residents and staff with safer , cleaner air by reducing the airborne transmission of illnesses such as COVID-19 , flu and other viruses .
