I am happy to inform you that beautician services are back up and running so if you want a haircut or hair styling, you may request it through the nurse on your unit or by calling reception and/or Judy to
schedule an appointment.
Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.
I am pleased to continue to be able to report we have had no cases of COVID-19 among our residents. We did have one employee test positive as a result of this weeks employee testing, however, that employee was asymptomatic and was still sent home as a precaution. Stringent infection control procedure continue as well as maintaining visitation by appointment only in order to try to contain/reduce potential resident exposures to this virus. In an effort to accommodate as many families as possible, effective June 1st, we have expanded our visitation hours as follows:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10:00am, 11:00am, 2:00pm and 3:00pm
Tuesday and Thursday 11:00am, 2:00pm, 3:00pm and 7:00pm
Saturday 11:00am and 3:00pm
Sunday 11:00am, 2:00pm, 3:00pm
As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to face unprecedented challenges during this pandemic.
As you are most probably aware, the Governor has revised the COVID-19 protocols for New Yorkers. He has eliminated mask mandates and capacity limits for vaccinated individuals in most settings. Please be aware, however, that he did not change any of the requirements related to nursing home visitation. Therefore current visitation rules remain in place. These rules include visitation by appointment only, in the daycare area or outside under the tents, and while wearing masks regardless of your, or the residents, vaccination status.
We share your desire to return to a more normal visitation experience but until it is deemed safe to do so per the Governor and NYS Department of Health, we must keep the current protocols in place. As the restrictions lighten, we will continue to modify our procedures and keep you informed of any changes accordingly.
Thank you for your continued understanding. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
I am pleased to continue to be able to report no COVID-19 infections among our residents. Additionally, for the past month there had been no positive cases among employees until this week, where one asymptomatic employee has tested positive.
This positive result does not impact your ability to visit with your loved ones, as the current regulations allow us to remain open to visitation even with positive cases.
Be reminded that visits must still be by appointment only and will be held in the daycare area. When weather permits, we will utilize outdoor locations for visitation, as well.
Please call the reception desk to schedule your appointment.
Thank you again for your ongoing patience and understanding.
