To Our Residents and Family Members:

We want to inform you that in the midst of this crisis, we appreciate even more so the love and support the entire community has shown us. Our staff are second-to-none, but they work even harder when they feel the love coming from you all. From the beginning and continuously, we have been monitoring Covid-19 across the country and especially focusing on the local area. Resident and staff safety are our top priorities, always have been - and that will always be the case. We are doing everything we can to ensure we keep this virus out of River City Nursing and Rehabilitation, including staying in very close communication with local and state health officials to ensure we are taking all the appropriate steps. Rest assured we are fully stocked with protective equipment including but not limited to masks and hand sanitizer and have implemented every necessary step to stay ahead. 

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has set forth a variety of steps that River City Nursing and Rehabilitation has implemented to protect our residents. These recommendations include among other things, strict infection control and prevention initiatives, stringent handwashing procedures, restricting visitation, and screening all individuals - including staff - that are permitted to enter our facility. Additionally, all healthcare workers adhere to the guidance issued by the CDC and the DOH for transmission-based precautions in caring for our patients. 

 

We encourage you to call our center at 402-397-1220 for updates on the status of your family members and loved ones. We understand that you are concerned about them, but it is crucial that we restrict visitation to reduce the potential exposure of this virus. We also understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important to our residents and we have taken steps to ensure that is made possible. Family members are encouraged to connect with their loved ones through video chat, calling, texting, or other social media formats. Feel free to reach out to us to setup a time.  We have multiple devices that can be used on platforms such as Zoom, Skype, Facetime to name a few. 

Again, please feel free to call for updates on your family members and otherwise we will be sure to communicate with you should there be any change in their conditions. 

We need your help in battling COVID-19. Teamwork is what will get us through this crisis and we will come out stronger! Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website to learn how you can help prevent the spread in our community.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone. We will continue to provide you with updates as they become available. Please know that we are strictly adhering to all directions from the local, state, and federal health departments.
