Our Safety Practices

Image: Our COVID Care BannerWe have established a safe environment by implementing a range of rigorous protocols, which include continually disinfecting frequently touched surfaces areas as well as:

  • Requiring all patients and staff to wear face coverings
  • Following physical distancing protocols
  • We have hired a team of infection control nurses
  • Screening all patients and residents for Covid-19 symptoms upon arrival
  • Regularly testing our staff for Covid-19
  • Implementing strict isolation practices to separate Covid-19 patients and residents from others

The facility will post a sign on the door to the facility as to which situation 1-3 above is occurring, the sign will indicate if you need to wear a mask and other safety measures.  If you are wearing a mask, once you arrive at the area you will be visiting the resident,  if there are no other residents or staff around, you may remove your mask and then put it back on prior to leaving that area.

 

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days, you have symptoms of COVID-19 or you suspect you have COVID-19, you should postpone your visit until you are better.  If you have tested positive for COVID-19, you should not come into the facility for at least 10 days.  The physician’s office may tell you 5 days, but the requirement for our type of facility is 10 days because of the vulnerable population we serve.  If you have an urgent visit and you currently have COVID 19 or Symptoms of COVID-19, please call the facility and every effort will be made to assist you to have the visit safely, without the risk of exposing other staff and residents.

 

If you have exposure to someone with COVID-19 and do not have symptoms, you may visit as long as you wear a mask during the entire visit and you maintain a 6-foot distance from others.  It is recommended that both you and the resident wear a mask even if you are visiting an area without other staff or residents.  If you are unable to wear a mask, then you should postpone your visit until 10 days after your exposure.  If your visit is urgent and you are unable to wear a mask, please contact the facility and every effort will be made to assist you to have the visit safely, without the risk of exposing other staff and residents.

How to Protect Yourself from Covid-19

The CDC continues to state that the best ways to avoid getting respiratory viruses are frequent hand washing and avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. The Coronavirus and the Influenza virus are spread by droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Their droplets land inside the mouths or noses of nearby people and on surrounding surfaces. Persons become infected when they either breathe in these droplets, or touch contaminated surfaces then touch their eyes, nose, and mouth.
