First and foremost, we want to wish you a most blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! This year has been unprecedented in so many ways, but one thing that has remained the same is the enduring gratitude we have for each member of our Facility community. We have shared with you the Guidance received from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and agree with their suggestion that the safest course of action this year…
With recent guidance we received from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services we are working toward re-establishing visitation. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you might have. 619.440.550 and ask to speak with our Infection Preventionist.
We at VICTORIA POST-ACUTE CARE CENTER have worked diligently through the COVID experience to keep all residents and staff here safe and healthy. We understand that, as family members to our residents, it has been difficult to have been away from your loved ones for so long. With the recent Guidance we received from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as interpreted by our State Department of Health, we are working toward re-establishing visitation.
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 landscape as a health care provider and as an employer, we want to reassure you that we take our infection prevention and control obligations very seriously. As you are aware, our Facility was hit early and hard by COVID-19, affecting staff and residents. Our staff delivered recovery-based treatment and committed to managing the spread of infection. We would like to share that we have not had a resident or staff member test positive for COVID-19 in the Facility since May 1.
We have now learned that one (1) of our former residents tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Although this resident is not currently in the Facility, we are taking every precaution to protect our current residents, staff and visitors.
On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation in skilled nursing facilities. Until further notice, we will be following this direction.
Please know that we are all fully engaged in taking action to minimize the possible exposure associated with this virus. We thank you for your continuing confidence, and for helping us in our attempts to keep our residents and staff safe.
