HEBERT HEALTH CENTER

    January 19, 2024

     Dear Friends of Hebert,

    Currently we do not have any covid cases in the facility, however we are asking that our visitors wear masks when coming into the building. This is to ensure the safety of our residents during the increase of Covid cases in RI.   We respectfully ask that you be mindful of the time you arrive and that if it is “off hours” for our receptionists – that you patiently wait for another member of our team to be available to greet you and screen you – prior to entering the facility. This is a continued effort to maintain a safe home and work environment for the residents, visitors, and staff. We continue to closely monitor residents and staff for symptoms and continue to follow Dept. of Health guidelines.

    We currently have 0 staff members that are covid-19 positive.

    We currently have 0 residents are Covid -19 positive.

    Indoor visitations are going well, any requests for face time, zoom video chats please contact activity dept staff to let them know you prefer that option to reach out to your loved ones.

    As a reminder, when dropping of smoking paraphernalia, please give them to the receptionist at the front desk so they can be properly labeled and stored individually for each resident.  Please do not give any smoking material to your loved one as not following the smoking rules could result in a loss of privileges. Each resident has a labeled draw/zipped locked bag containing their personal smoking products.   More information regarding the smoking rules and smoking times to follow. Just a friendly reminder to family and friends Please drop off all smoking materials to front desk.

    While smoking outside, please be mindful as you drive past the smoking area for the safety of our residents and staff.

    The facility’s visitation hours are 9:00am to 9:00pm; visiting hours may be extended under special circumstances. 

    If you have any question please feel free to reach out to me, Deanna Paul , NHA

    Warm regards, Deanna Paul
