Dear Residents, Family members/Legal Representatives and Staff:
Last week’s test results confirmed one of our staff tested positive requiring that all staff and residents get tested twice weekly. Please note that there are no positive COVID-19 cases in house!
All staff, NO EXCEPTION, please report to Infection Control Office every week for testing on Tuesday and Friday regardless if you are scheduled to work or off on testing days until further notice. All residents will be tested as well twice weekly until further notice.
Per CMS’s recent update “residents can visit with their loved-ones anytime in accordance with adherence to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention and control to mitigate the risk of infection spread. Residents may continue to deny or withdraw consent for a visitation at any time”. The facility’s visitation hours are 9:00am through 9:00pm; visiting hours maybe extended under special circumstances. The asks that you call to schedule your visits in an effort to alleviate a crowded environment. Per CMS, “If a visitor, resident, or his/her representative is aware of the risks associated with visitation and the visit occurs in a manner that does not place other residents at risk (e.g., in the resident’s room), the resident must be allowed to receive visitors as he/she chooses”. All visitors must be screened upon entering the facility.
“Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine should not enter the facility. Facilities should screen all who enter for these visitation exclusions. “Facilities should ensure physical distancing can still be maintained during peak visitation times and avoid large gatherings where large numbers of visitors are in the same space at the same time and physical distancing cannot be maintained”.
“If a resident’s roommate is not vaccinated or immunocompromised (regardless of vaccination status), visitation should not be conducted in the resident’s room if possible. If the nursing home’s county COVID-19 community level of transmission is substantial to high, all residents and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, should wear face coverings/masks and physical distance at all times”.
“Visitors should wear face coverings/masks while around other residents or health care personnel, regardless of vaccination status. Residents on transmission-based precautions (TBP) or quarantine, while not recommended, can still receive visitors in the resident’s room. The resident should wear a well-fitting facemask (if tolerated). Visitors should be made aware of the risks of visitation, core principles of infection prevention. A facility is not required to, but may offer masks and other PPE as appropriate”.
All visitations require you to wear a mask and follow the Facility’s Infection Control measures. Indoor visitors are not allowed to roam the floor/unit and must remain in the provided designated area where you are to visit with your loved-one.
NO FOOD ORDERS AFTER 8PM.
From the Administrator’s Office
