A few notes on the sanitization and safety measures we’re standardizing within our facility:
Cleaning & Sanitation
Our teams have implemented precautionary sanitization standards, developed using the guidance and information provided by local health authorities, including Public Health, and government requirements.
We have increased the frequency of facility-wide disinfection, focusing on high-touch surfaces, including, but not limited to, doorknobs, handrails, the front desk, restrooms, and rehabilitation equipment.
In addition, our food services team has implemented new precautionary measures, including disinfecting all kitchen surfaces multiple times a day and wearing gloves and masks when cooking, cleaning, and serving.
To ensure a safe and healthy environment, we have discontinued all public activities for the time being. Our staff members perform daily checks on our residents and spend one-on-one time with them to increase socialization. In addition, family members and friends of residents can schedule a time to FaceTime or call their loved ones during the day. Please call our facility if you are interested, and our staff will help you connect with your loved one.
All residents are required to practice physical distancing and wear masks outside of their rooms. Our public areas have been rearranged to ensure appropriate distancing is met. All staff members are practicing physical distancing from our residents and employees whenever possible.
Temperature & Well-Being Checks
We take the temperature of every staff member upon entry to our facility during the beginning of every shift. We also conduct a thorough screening process each shift. Any staff member with signs of illness will stay at home and quarantine until they are able to return to work per Public Health and CDC guidelines.
Protective Equipment Care & Hand Hygiene
We understand that proper protective equipment and frequent hand hygiene are vital to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We require all staff and residents to wear face masks at all times (unless the resident is in his or her bedroom). In addition, our entire team is specially trained in proper safety measures. In addition to wearing masks, they wear safety goggles and gloves and strictly follow all CDC and public safety guidelines to provide a safe environment for our residents. We also have multiple hand-sanitizer dispensers throughout the facility for our staff and residents to use.
