10-24-2022: Safe Visitation Update
- Current total of 12 positive residents and 6 staff with COVID
- Group Activities temporarily suspended
- All units still allowing visitation under CMS guidance
We have a total of 12 residents and 6 staff members who are currently positive for Covid-19. These residents are all from the 600 units of the Hamilton Terrace building and East 1 of the Dalton building. Each of the families of these residents have been contacted and made aware of their positive test results. These residents will remain under isolation until the virus has past and negative test results are achieved. Staff caring for these residents are following CMS and CDC protocols in an effort to help prevent any cross contamination.
The COVID-19 positive staff members will remain out of work until they have completed the required protocols to be safe to return to work. We have also temporarily suspended all Group Activities in both buildings as a precautionary measure.
Be aware that the 600 and the East 1 units remain under an observation period which includes ongoing testing of all staff and all residents. Visitation is still allowed to continue as long as each visitor follows infection control protocols and no further outbreak occurs. Standifer Place is requesting that families and friends of residents on the 600 and East 1 units postpone visiting at this time unless an urgent matter is present that warrants compassionate care visits. Contact the unit manager or social worker if you have questions. Assuming no further COVID-19 cases are discovered on these two units, normal visitation on these units should resume later next week.
We encourage all visitors to join our staff in following infection control protocols including wearing masks and sanitizing hands. Your keeping socially distanced as much as possible during your visit is highly encouraged as well.
If you have any questions concerning these matters, you can contact the Unit Manager or Social Worker. You can reach us using our number 423-490-1599.
Thank you for allowing us to care for you and/or a loved one of yours who is here at Standifer Place.
