Our Care Under Covid

The safety of our patients is a top priority for our staff. We have been a leader in implementing systems and processes that assure that we deliver high-quality, safe care for those in our facilities during this worldwide pandemic. NOTE: Our facility does not administer the Covid-19 vaccine to non-residents and patients. Please contact a private doctors’ office, the local health department clinic, an urgent care clinic, or a local pharmacy.

Our Safety Practices

  • 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

What to Expect During Your Visit

Indoor Visits for Non-Covid Patients & Residents

While outdoor and virtual visits remain the safest option, indoor visits are available for any resident not under a transmission-based quarantine. NOTE: Compassionate visits for Covid-impacted residents and patients by designated essential caregivers remain available option.

Outdoor Facility Visits & Extended Outings

Outings, such as church attendance and non-essential medical appointments, are permissible for non-quarantined residents. Furthermore, the prior requirement to quarantine upon return has been lifted — unless the resident has had a known exposure to Covid-19 while on the outing.

After each visit, the space will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, with an emphasis on frequently touched surfaces per CDC guidelines. We appreciate your support and patience as we operate in these difficult times.

Covid-19 Status: Phase 2

We currently have no active cases of Covid-19 in our facility and are in Phase 2 of our response plan. This means we continue to closely monitor for Covid-19 signs and symptoms as well as continuing to adhere to the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and other authorities to protect our residents. For any additional questions about Phase 2 or 3, please feel free to contact us.

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 avoid 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.
