The COVID Mitigation Medal recognizes vigilance and excellence in infection control and prevention efforts at long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) centers. The COVID-19 pandemic surfaced many new problems and compounded existing ones. Comagine Health wishes to recognize the excellent work centers in our six-state region of Idaho, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington are doing to keep residents, staff and the wider community safe by limiting the spread of COVID-19.
Any LTPAC center located in our six-state region (Idaho, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington) can apply for the COVID Mitigation Medal.
The COVID Mitigation Medal is offered on a quarterly basis. Once you have submitted your application, Comagine Health will notify you each quarter if you have won the COVID Mitigation Medal. There is no need to reapply on a quarterly basis.
