11-5-20 COVID Preparation
November 05, 2020
Happy Thursday! I wanted to give a huge shout out to the Pioneer Memorial Care Center Staff! They are truly amazing and dedicated to the safety and welfare of our residents. <3 <3 I also want thank our residents and families for helping us to be better prepared and agreeing to a mass move between the neighborhoods. We moved 17 individuals in one day, they rock!!!!
In light of the large uptick of COVID cases and our neighbors who we are learning from and praying for as they deal with COVID cases, we decided that our COVID contingency plan needed some changes. Initially we had our Valley neighborhood tagged as our dedicated COVID wing with 2 beds that could be segregated from the larger group in case a resident were to get sick. The remainder of the wing was our quarantine area.
Hearing what could happen with a larger outbreak we re-evaluated our layout identifying that our Oak wing would be better solution. The Oak Wing offers the most single rooms and a separate ventilation system to reduce airborne transmissions.
We completed a full round of testing this week for both our Assisted Living and Nursing Home. We pray that our staff and residents remain healthy and well as our community. We will continue to keep you posted.
With much gratitude, Lisa Frey - Administrator
