As one of the leading nursing homes in the country, Camillus Medhaven takes the threat of COVID-19 seriously as it houses 132 elderly residents who are all vulnerable to the virus. In addition to the residents, the 167 employees of the institution are also at risk of contracting the virus because they cannot work from home, as it is their duty to give continuous care to the residents.

- To give proper compensation to the employees of Camillus Medhaven in the form of Incentive Pay and Hazard Pay for at least 2 months.
Implementation of the Program
