Medical Response Team - Nurse and Health services
Our Medical Response Team is in-place Tuesdays through Fridays 9 a.m. until Noon to respond to the many medical needs that frequently go unmet for members of the homeless and street populations. This includes foot exams (cleaning and free socks and shoes), health screenings, HIV/AIDS prevention, testing and care referral, diabetes screening, diet management and emergency care for needs such as bruises, scrapes and burns.
While this type of emergency care may seem minor in nature, it will frequently prevent larger problems such as infections. This response incorporates a knowledge and understanding of the individual medical needs of the many who frequent our Drop-In Center, and enables us to monitor and advise based upon the daily relationships that our team establishes with those who visit us.
