Extended Care and The Lodge Visitation Guidelines

 

 

June 30, 2021

In accordance with CMS nursing home guidelines regarding county positivity rate, we continue to test non-vaccinated staff once weekly. At this time, we have had no positive cases.

ALL VISITORS MUST BE SCREENED AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE. This includes COVID-19 screening form, temperature screening, face mask covering nose and mouth, and sanitization of hands with hand sanitizer. Movement about the facility is still restricted to and from resident rooms.  There are two visitors allowed at a time in residents rooms. If you have a larger group, please visit in the courtyard or gazebo areas. If children are visiting, they must be accompanied by an adult.

OUTINGS:
Residents can leave the facility and return without having to quarantine if they are fully vaccinated.  Non-vaccinated residents will be tested on day 3 and 7 after returning to facility if out longer than 24 hours.

Mask wearing in the facility is strictly enforced. We will continue to monitor visitors in the facility and confirm infection control protocols are being followed. The facility has the right to protect its residents, this includes asking those not willing to wear a mask to leave the building and suspend visitation.  No mask required for children 2 & under.

The facility is undergoing a flooring project. This is a great upgrade and will play a huge role in the keeping our facility clean. This project may be a slow process, as we do not want to disturb the livelihood of our residents. Please bear with us as entrances to facility may change according to where the contractors are currently working.

WHAT WE ARE DOING:
All staff are required to wear surgical face masks and goggles while in resident areas. 
Daily (1x/day) temperature checks of residents will continue.
Daily/shift staff health screenings and temperatures will continue.
Daily disinfecting of all common areas and frequent touch points.

ACTIVITIES:
Group activities have resumed as well as communal dining. We are very excited to continue moving forward to somewhat “normal” nonetheless, federal and state guidelines will continue being strictly followed to ensure the health and safety of our residents.

We will continue to update you with any changes or new COVID-19 cases within the facility.
