We are all very thankful that many of the visitation restrictions have been relaxed by CMS and we have enjoyed seeing many of you visiting again and watching the reunions with your loved ones. We do however have a few directives that we are still required to follow whether it is an indoor or outdoor visit. We are still required to follow COVID-19 infection control requirements which includes social distancing. Two of the most important are:
Visitors must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose and practice social distancing, 6 feet, while visiting their loved one during their entire visit.
Visitors must sign in before entering and have temperature taken.
Due to this directive still being in place we are limited in the number of people that can safely visit the facility at the same time. After evaluating the Skilled Nursing facility, we have determined that we can safely do the following and still follow the CMS directive:
We can safely have 3 simultaneous visits with 2 visitors per person. We ask that these visits be limited to 30 minutes so more families will be able to visit daily.
We can safely have 3 simultaneous visits with 2 visitors per person. We ask that these visits be limited to 20 minutes so more families will be able to visit daily. Indoor visits must be conducted in a common area so proper social distancing can occur. The only exception is that if your loved one happens to have a private room you may visit in the room.
While it is not required, we do ask that you still make an appointment if you are visiting indoors or out, otherwise you may have to wait to visit if all designated visiting areas are occupied.
Although this is not the perfect scenario it is much better than where we were two weeks ago.
We along with you are eager to open back up without restrictions as soon as it is allowed and safe for everyone involved. We hope further guidance is forthcoming to allow this. We continue to thank you for your patience and understanding.
