Skilled Nursing and PC Memory Support have continued conducting outbreak testing as a result of recent positive COVID-19 tests. Skilled Nursing had 1 additional resident test positive this week. We currently have 2 residents in our dedicated COVID-19 Unit. All other positive residents have recovered and have been moved back to their original room. Memory Support had one team member test positive this week.
Due to the increasing number of positive tests, we have suspended all group dining and activities throughout skilled nursing. All team members will be tested a minimum of 1X per week, must wear an N-95 mask and eye protection at all times, and a gown during resident care. We are discouraging visitation in Skilled Nursing but families may still choose to visit per CMS regulation. It is imperative that all visitors continue to wear a mask at all times while visiting and ensure they are checking in at the kiosk at the main entrance.
Due to the positive Team Member test this week, we continue to be open for compassionate care visitation only. All team members will continue to be tested a minimum of 1X per week, must wear an N-95 mask and eye protection at all times, and wear a gown during resident care.
Personal care remains COVID-19 free and is open to visitation. Team members in personal care should review the PPE and testing guidelines to ensure proper PPE and testing guidelines are being met.
We have not been made aware of any additional RL positive tests in the past week. We will not make any changes at this time but we would encourage individuals in Residential Living to wear a mask, and watch closely for any signs or symptoms.
