An Update from our Infection Preventionist 4/1/2020

Dear families and friends,
Recently, we’ve had several family members asking about our plan in the event our own residents or staff become ill. We are working diligently to avoid that, but understand you might have questions. We’re happy to answer those for you to the best of our abilities, but please understand that our plans are fluid and may change without notice based on guidance from the CDC, CMS, or the health department.
If a resident were to become ill with COVID19, we would first notify families by email so that everyone would have an opportunity to be notified quickly and all at once. Then, we would begin updating families individually by phone. We have several private rooms reserved for residents if they do become ill and will use these first. If the number of ill residents grows beyond this, we will utilize the Basic unit as an isolation unit and move non-ill residents to the other part of the building. Unless an ill resident requires immediate medical care, or care beyond our capabilities, they will remain in our facility in isolation.
As stated above, these plans are subject to change without notice. At this time, everyone entering our building is required to have a temperature taken, be screened for symptoms, and are required to wear a mask at all times. Our social workers and activity staff have been and will continue to work to find new ways for you to see and hear your loved one during this time. We understand this is difficult for all involved and wish that everyone stays home and stays healthy.
If we do not have your email address on file for your loved one, please contact me or your loved one's social worker to add it. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jynelltackett@alamonh.net
Sincerely,
Jynell Tackett, LPN, Infection Preventionist
