IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR March 19, 2021

I am disappointed to share with you that we have had one new incident of COVID-19 in our community.  This employee was tested using a rapid test and we are awaiting results from the lab test that was also performed.  Unfortunately, the positivity rate in Philadelphia County went above the 5% mark again last week and that requires that we continue weekly testing of staff and health center residents.  We all need to continue to be diligent and maintain wearing our masks, practice hand hygiene and social distancing. 

CMS has provided an update to “Nursing Home Visitation – COVID-19”, and both the PA Department of Health and Department of Human Services have recommended following the visitation guidelines.

We will continue to require appointments for all visits with residents in order to ensure that we are able to provide appropriate infection control through wearing masks, six-foot distancing and cleaning/disinfecting areas where visits will be taking place.

In an attempt to make this process easier for you, we are introducing a new web-based scheduling system, Sign Up Genius, for you to go on-line and look at the available times for visits and sign-up for a visitation appointment.  We anticipate we may have some bumps in the road, initially, and we ask for your patience in using this system.  From the user’s side it is very simple, from the administrative side – maybe not so much!

Following, please find three different sheets, one for each level of care in our community.  On each sheet you will find a simplified version of the 8-page CMS memo.  Please take time to read the version that pertains to you so you will know the parameters that we will follow for visiting.  You will see that the PC and HC version are similar.  On these pages, you will also find the link to use Sign Up Genius to make an appointment to visit.  Access to Sign Up Genius will begin Monday, March 22 at 7:00 a.m.
