Update from Administrator – March 12, 2021
The Connecticut Association of Health Care Facilities offered a Webex to us this afternoon, 3/12/2021. The purpose was to outline changes in visitation at Nursing Homes and practical advice on how it could be done.
I am sure you are reading about these changes in the news. If you go to CMS.gov and look for CMS QSO-20-39-NH revised, you can review these changes. We are very excited to have increased opportunities for visitation.
That being said, please bear with us for a few more days as we pull together a plan to create a safe and practical visiting experience. We need to provide additional education to staff and to our families, set visiting times, identify residents who have been vaccinated and those who have not and more.
As always, our resident’s health is our primary concern. We want to open the facility to increased visitation and we want to do it in a safe manner. We appreciate your understanding and your efforts in working with us toward this goal. Thank you.
