Update From Administrator – September 18, 2020
September 18, 2020
Dear Family and Residents
Thank you all for your continued patience and kindness as we go through this crisis. We are happy to announce that visitation still continues for residents and has been extended to indoors as of 09/25/2020. The same rules for visitation still exist where appoints must be made in advance and are 30 minutes long, temperature check, answering the questionnaire as well as wearing of masks. However, visitors are now able to hug their loved ones with special precaution which will be explained by the attendant. Failure to follow those guidelines outlined by the Department of Public Health (DPH) may result is your visitation privilege being revoked. For those who are unable to visit we continue to offer electronic form of communication to all residents so that they will be able to keep in touch with their loved ones.
Based on our continued testing of residents and staff bi-weekly we came up with one staff member positive and a recovered staff who tested positive. This week staff testing from 9/10/20120 – 9/17/2020 had no staff and no resident positive for the virus.
The management and staff of Parsons Hill wants to assure you that we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of your loved ones.
As we progress, the health and safety of our residents and staff remain our highest priority, so we will continue to take proper precautions set forth by CDC and DPH to ensure that all residents remain safe. We also continue to maintain strict infection control protocol such as hand washing, sanitizing of high traffic areas, and constant cleaning of the facility with the use of proper PPE. We will continue to work as a team to ensure that all residents are treated with the utmost respect and dignity.
Thank you again for your patience and if there are any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call me at 508-791-4200.
