Covid19 Update 9/17/20
We are glad to report that we have received no Covid 19 positive test results since our last posting. We also have not had any clusters of respiratory symptoms in a 72-hour period.
We continue to screen/monitor all staff and residents on a routine basis. We also continue with mandated testing as required by our governmental agencies. We also continue to monitor the county positivity rate, which is stable, but still has not declined.
Please call and make an appointment for a window visit with your friends and loved ones, as we continue not permit routine in person visitation at this time. They do enjoy these window visits.
The safety and the well-being of our residents and staff continue to be our utmost concern.
We will continue monitoring residents, staff, and all essential workers per CDC guidelines, as we have been doing. These guidelines include, but are not limited to: These guidelines include: • Maintaining social distancing • Continuing our enhanced infection control protocols • Screening staff health status prior to entering the Community • Increasing the frequency of health assessments for residents • Dedicating staff to serve those who may be at higher risk • Engaging residents in individualized activities to meet their social needs • Expanding use of Personal Protection Equipment (masks, face shield, gowns etc.) We know that you may have questions and we encourage you to contact our center by emailing us to the following address: Covid19@rivercitynursing.com or by calling: (402) 397-1220 Please reach out to us at any time if you'd like to schedule a video conference with your loved one. We are happy to help. As always please remember good hand hygiene, face masks, and social distancing. (This is the only way to defeat this Virus) Sincerely, River City Management
