As you are more than likely aware, a new respiratory disease – coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) – is spreading globally and there have been instances of COVID-19 community spread in the United States. The general strategies The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Long-Term Care Facilities is the same strategies our facility uses every day to detect and prevent the spread of other respiratory viruses like influenza (flu).
Senior Rehab & Recovery Center at Limestone Health Facility is closely monitoring all CDC and other government agency updates on this and other infectious viruses and will follow their directives, as well as employ appropriate standard precautions and preventative measures against infection. At this time, out of an abundance of caution and based on guidance issued from the government, this includes limiting access to our facility. Limiting access means that no individual, regardless of reason, will be allowed to enter our facility, except under certain and very specific circumstances, such as end of-life situations or when essential for a resident’s emotional well-being and care.
All essential visitors must enter through one locked point of entry and exit only. Upon arrival, and before being granted access, all essential visitors will be screened for respiratory illness, recent travel, and recent exposure to individuals identified with COVD-19.
Regular facility visiting hours have been temporarily suspended. Alternative means of communication with residents are readily available upon request, including virtual means (phone/video communication). Please contact the facility for further details.
We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and help with our commitment to the health of our residents and their families during this time. Our resident’s health and safety are our top concern and we are doing everything we can to protect them.
