- Positive cases bring some visitation restrictions
Since Hamilton County has a COVID Positivity rate above 10% and because Standifer Place have discovered through our continued testing 6 positive employees, visitation is impacted as follows:
- Our Dalton Place West 3 Unit (rooms 302 through 330) is currently under Observation and visitation is restricted as least until 08-20-2021
- All other units remain with open visitation hours, 7 days a week from 8am to 8pm
- Visitors enter the main lobby of our buildings to be screened and provided a mask.
Regarding the positive employees, only one was in a patient care area which was West 3. Therefore, only that unit was affected concerning visitation. All employees and all residents of the Dalton building were tested on Friday and all were negative. Testing will continue for all employees and residents of the Dalton Place building at least until 08-20-2021. West 3 families and residents will be notified of any change in visitation restrictions.
For all visitors: By CDC guidance that CMS (Centers for Medicare/Medicaid) requires we follow, visitors inside the buildings are to be masked. Because not all patients are vaccinated, visitors and patients wishing to visit without masks are to conduct their visit outdoors. Keep in mind that our patients are at our center because their health is already compromised. Let’s join together in helping keep them safe while inside! Afterhours visits can be provided by contacting your loved one’s social worker.
