About the Charity
Like many health providers, Culmore Clinic has transitioned to telemedicine – and extended both days of operation (from two to six) and numbers of hours worked by nurses and the nurse practitioner who monitor patients’ wellbeing. A new pickup service provides medications to patients with chronic conditions – who are also given masks and gloves, plus meals and food parcels supplied by a partner. Home delivery (including pulse oximeters and blood-pressure cuffs) is available for patients experiencing symptoms of the virus. For those suffering financial hardship and tapping available funds for rent, Culmore uses its Breaking Barriers Fund to purchase medications that alleviate symptoms. Located in a largely Hispanic community that has been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, Culmore also tests patients at its site. The need for affordable, culturally-sensitive medical care is dire – and during COVID-19, the need is only growing.
