COVID Update

Week of September 20, 2020

Dear Residents, Family members and Legal Representatives,

We continue to be COVID-19 free.  Visiting hours will be offered from 1:00pm to 4:00pm Monday thru Friday. As always, we will continue to accommodate face time visits by appointment.  Please contact Dolores Medina, Activity Director to schedule a time at (401) 231-7016, ext. 520.

In order to keep our residents, staff and your family members safe from the potential coronavirus exposure, we need to implement visits under a very strict set of rules.  Here is a run-down of what you need to know:

  • Reservation times will be determined by the resident’s responsible party calling our reception desk for a scheduled time slot.
  • Visits may be cancelled by our team for any reason including inclement weather.
  • Unannounced visits are not permitted.
  • Staff members will sanitize visitors’ hands upon entrance and departure.
  • Each visitor will be required to have a temperature taken and complete a questionnaire to ensure a safe visit.
  • Visitors must be 18 years old or older.
  • Visits are limited to 2 persons per resident for 20-30 minutes.
  • No Physical contact is allowed and social distance will be enforced.
  • No food, beverages, or gifts are allowed to be given to the resident.
  • Visits will take place outdoors in the protected designated area of the front parking lot.
  • Visitors need to properly wear face coverings when approaching the premises, and once screening has taken place, will be provided a surgical-grade face mask to wear during the visit if they do not already have one.
  • All visits will be monitored by a staff member.
  • Seating and high touch areas will be disinfected with CDC-approved sanitizing agent and drying time will be observed before the next visit.
  • To ensure fairness, every resident will have the opportunity for a visit with their loved ones before more appointments are scheduled.
  • Virtual visitation will continue to be offered on a scheduled basis.

We ask for your understanding of and strict adherence to our list of rules for visitation.  If you are not feeling well or have had any risk of coronavirus exposure, we ask that you do not visit.

Sincerely,

Kerri Ann Cerra, RN, NHA
