Health Guidelines

Your Health Protection, One Guideline At A Time

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) provides guidelines for health care workers in British Columbia, Canada, to help prevent the spread of infections.

These guidelines include:

Hand hygiene: Health care workers must wash their hands frequently and thoroughly, particularly before and after caring for patients or handling medical equipment.

Personal protective equipment (PPE): Health care workers must use appropriate PPE, such as gloves, masks, and gowns, when caring for patients with suspected or confirmed infectious diseases.

Respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette: Health care workers must use masks when entering a room of a patient with suspected or confirmed respiratory infection and must cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing.




Cleaning and disinfection: Health care workers must ensure that medical equipment and surfaces are cleaned and disinfected properly to prevent the spread of infection.

Vaccinations: Health care workers must be up to date on recommended vaccinations, such as the flu shot, to protect themselves and their patients from infectious diseases.

Reporting: Health care workers must report any communicable diseases they have or suspect they have to their employer and public health authorities.

It is important to note that these guidelines may change over time based on the evolution of the pandemics, and health care workers should stay up to date with the most recent guidelines and protocols issued by the BCCDC and other relevant health authorities.

Trustworthy Care for
Your Loved Ones

Webookcare is committed to providing consumers with the highest level of care and service. To ensure that our health care workers are of the highest caliber, we have implemented a rigorous vetting and review process.

First, all of our health care workers go through a thorough enhanced criminal record check. An enhanced criminal record check in Canada is a thorough and comprehensive background check that is used to verify the criminal history of an individual. It includes the following elements:

Enhanced criminal record check: A search of the individual’s criminal record at the federal and provincial levels, which includes any convictions, charges, and pending charges.

Fingerprint-based check: A search of the individual’s fingerprints against the national fingerprint database to identify any criminal records that may not be included in a standard criminal record check.

Vulnerable sector check: A search of the individual's criminal record for any convictions related to sexual offences or crimes against vulnerable individuals, such as children or the elderly.

CPIC check: A search of the Canadian Police Information Centre database, which includes information on criminal records, outstanding warrants, and other information related to criminal activity.

Local police check: A check with the individual’s local police department to gather information on any criminal activity in the area.

Pardoned Sex Offender Database check

A search of the National Pardoned Sex Offender Database, which includes information on individuals who have been granted a pardon for sexual offences.

It is important to note that the scope and details of an enhanced criminal record check in Canada may vary depending on the province or territory, and the laws of the country. The type of background check required will also depend on the position being applied for and the level of security clearance needed.

Rating and reviewing

Rating and reviewing Health Care Workers on the app is important because it allows other users to make informed decisions about which providers to use. By seeing what other people have experienced when using a certain provider, users can make better decisions about who to trust and who to avoid. It also gives feedback to providers so they can make improvements to their services and ensure future customers have a better experience.

In addition to the enhanced criminal record check, ratings and reviews, we also conduct regular check in’s of our health care workers’ performance. We gather feedback from Care Seekers and Care Recipients and use this information to assess the quality of care provided by our health care workers.

We also make sure that our health care workers are up to date with the most recent guidelines, protocols and best practices in their field, and provide them with access to regular training and education to keep them informed of any updates.

By implementing these strict vetting and review processes, Webookcare ensures that our health care workers are qualified, experienced, and dedicated to providing the highest level of care and service. Consumers can trust that when they choose Webookcare, they are choosing a company that is committed to providing top-quality care and service.
