Visitation Plan and Policy

Updated: 11/12/2021

Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones From COVID-19

 

  1. All visitors must follow the core principles and best practices to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission by:
    1. performing hand hygiene upon entering the building and before leaving visitation area,
    2. wearing a face covering to cover mouth and nose at all times when in the facility.
    3. maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet from residents, staff, and other visitors
  2. The facility will no longer limit the frequency and length of visits for residents, the number of visitors, or require advance scheduling of visits. While there is no limitation on the number of visitors a resident can receive, we respectfully ask that you limit the number of visitors in order to ensure social distancing rules are followed. If you would like to visit in a larger group, please contact your Social Worker so that appropriate accommodations can be made for you and your loved ones.
  3. Visitation hours are 10:00am-8:00pm, every day.
  4. Upon entering the building, visitors are required to complete the Covid-19 questionnaire at the receptionist and get a temperature screen.
  5. Visitors are required to notify the Nursing Supervisor if they experience any Covid-like symptoms or tests positive for Covid within 48 hours of the visit.
  6. During indoor visitation, visitors should not walk around different halls of the facility. Rather, they should go directly to the resident’s room or designated visitation area.
  7. In room visits may not be allowed due to a resident’s medical condition and/or status, in such cases, facility staff will assign a designated visitation area.
  8. While not recommended because of increased risk of getting Covid-19, residents who are on isolation precautions or quarantine can still receive visitors. Visits will be limited to the resident’s room. Facility requires all visitors to wear a mask and may require visitors to wear additional personal protective equipment (PPE) to include gown, gloves, mask, and eye protection.
  9. If the resident is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their visitor. Unvaccinated residents may also choose to have physical touch based on their preferences and needs, such as with support persons for individuals with disabilities and visitors participating in certain religious practices, including in end-of-life situations. In these situations, unvaccinated residents (or their representative) and their visitors will be advised of the risks of physical contact prior to the visit. Visitors will also be required to physically distance from other residents and staff in the facility.
  10. The facility strongly recommends that visitors get a Covid-19 vaccine to protect themselves & our residents.
  11. If any visitor fails to adhere to the protocol, he/she/they will be prohibited from visiting for the duration of the Covid-19 state declared public health emergency.
  12. If one feels like these arrangements doesn’t meet your or the resident’s needs, please see your social worker or Nursing Supervisor.
