General Update

Over the past two weeks, we have seen a significant downward trend with any residents experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. However, we must continue to "keep the pedal down" with continued strong efforts centered around infection control prevention and control--remaining vigilant is our focus priority:


This includes (but not limited to):


  • Continued and stringent requirements for usage of Personal Protective Equipment

  • Enhanced/ supplementary frequency of cleaning by a third party commercial cleaning company

  • Using remote tele-health via our tele-medicine robot to allow our physicians to see residents when needed off-hours

  • Placement of H13 HEPA (Medical Grade) Air Purifier Systems throughout the building

  • Screening/temps of all staff members on every shift

  • Cohorting Covid positive patients in a specific area/wing

  • Continuing to obtain PPE (personal protective equipment) to build inventory stocks

Inspection:


This past week we had an infection control inspection by the Department of Health (WC County) as part of an overall inspection/enforcement process that is occurring throughout the state. The inspection concluded with no systematic or major concerns/findings.
