NEW ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING ON-SITE VISITATIONS AT OUR CENTER EFFECTIV12/26/20
We are delighted to inform you that we will be able to welcome you back for Visitation. If you would like to schedule a visit, please contact the Admissions Office to set up your visitation appointment.
The State of Florida has determined that the public response to COVID-19 has progressed to the point where long-term care centers may reopen to visitors, under carefully controlled guidelines to ensure the continued well-being of our residents. It is vitally important that everyone carefully comply with these guidelines, both to protect the residents and to make sure no new cases emerge – a circumstance that would force us to once again close Indoor General Visitation until we are free of new cases for at least 14-days. The center must also have sufficient staff to support management of visitors, adequate PPE, adequate cleaning and disinfecting supplies and adequate capacity at referral hospitals for the center.
Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our residents – and we know that your visits with them are important to their health and happiness. We will continue screening residents and each approved and scheduled visitor as they enter the center, and will continue testing staff weekly.
General and Compassionate Care Visitation: The resident will have no more than two (2) visitors per visit at any one time and the visit shall not exceed 45 minutes. Visitation shall be by appointment only and will be conducted in designated areas with center staff supervision. Visitors shall plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow for proper screening and education.
In addition, to help keep the doors open, visitors will be required to meet the following conditions:
The center will deny access of a visitor for noncompliance with center infection prevention and control requirements.
We understand some of these requirements may present a challenge, but they are necessary to protect the loved ones under our care. We appreciate your cooperation in complying with the state’s requirements for visitation. Our residents, staff, and management are thrilled to welcome you back soon!
