02-27-2022: VISITATION UPDATE

  • 1 resident positive for COVID
  • All units still allowing visitation under CMS guidance
  • Indoor Group Activities begin

On Saturday, one resident from our A wing unit tested positive for COVID-19.  This resident has been placed in quarantine and isolation from all other residents, and the staff providing care to this resident are following CDC and CMS infection control protocols to help prevent any cross contamination.  The family of this resident has been notified.  We will continue to isolate this resident until the virus has past and we obtain a negative test result showing the resident is no longer contagious.

We are conducting on-going testing as a result of this positive case.  Should any of our ongoing testing produce other covid positive results, the family of any covid positive resident will be contacted right away, and all families will be notified of any visitation changes.

Visitation on each of the nursing units is still allowed as long as each visitor is appropriately screened at our front gate, wears a mask, follows hand hygiene protocols, and keeps socially distanced during the visit.  The only exceptions are with regard to newly admitted residents who are unvaccinated or any current resident who has tested positive for COVID 19.  Such residents must first complete an isolation period prior to any visitation.  If your loved falls under one of the two categories, you can contact their Social Worker or Unit Manager to confirm the date isolation will be completed and/or to ask about Compassionate Care visits.

You can contact the Unit Managers or Social Workers of your loved one’s unit using our number 423-490-1599 and asking for them by name.

Otherwise, all visitors of residents in both the Dalton Place and the Hamilton Terrace buildings are welcome and are to follow these guidelines when visiting:

  • By CDC guidance that CMS 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.  Visitors may also be required to wear additional personal protective equipment that we will supply while in the room visiting a resident depending on the status of the unit and the status of the resident. 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.

Indoor Group Activities are starting back slowly with infection control measures in place that includes small size groups, plenty of distancing, and mask wearing.  As the positivity rate continues to decline and if we have no outbreak within the facility, we will continue to carefully conduct these small group gatherings.

Thanks for your understanding!

02-18-2022: VISITATION UPDATE

  • 2 residents and 3 staff positive for COVID
  • All units still allowing visitation under CMS guidance
  • Indoor Group Activities remain postpone

After the difficulties with positive covid cases over the past month and half, our number of positive cases is down to a total of 5.  The 2 residents who are positive are in quarantine and isolation from all other residents, and the staff providing care to these residents are following CDC and CMS infection control protocols to help prevent any cross contamination.  The families of these 2 residents have been notified.  We will continue to isolate these residents until the virus has past and we obtain a negative test result showing they are no longer contagious.

The 3 staff members who are positive have been placed off the work schedule.  Per CDC and CMS guidelines, we are conducting ongoing testing of all residents and staff on units where COVID 19 has been detected.  Other departments that have been affected are also being tested.

Should any of our ongoing testing produce other covid positive results, the family of any covid positive resident will be contacted right away, and all families will be notified of any visitation changes.

Visitation on each of the nursing units is still allowed as long as each visitor is appropriately screened at our front gate, wears a mask, follows hand hygiene protocols, and keeps socially distanced during the visit.  The only exceptions are with regard to newly admitted residents who are unvaccinated or any current resident who has tested positive for COVID 19.  Such residents must first complete an isolation period prior to any visitation.  If your loved falls under one of the two categories, you can contact their Social Worker or Unit Manager to confirm the date isolation will be completed and/or to ask about Compassionate Care visits.

Indoor Group Activities remain postpone at this time due to the high positivity rate Hamilton County which is above 30%, well above the 10% threshold.  Once the county the rate goes back below 10% for two weeks, we will be able to allow Indoor Group Activities again.
