Re: COVID-19 Updates

 

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

 

We are committed to keeping you informed as things develop regarding the three non-clinical staff members who underwent Covid-19 testing. We have received two out of three results back from the lab which have been deemed positive for the virus. We are unsure when the third test result will arrive at this time, but we will certainly let you know when it does come in. The three staff members remain quarantined from the building and will continue to remain away from the facility for a minimum period of 14 days to include 72 hours symptom free before being able to return to work per KDHE and JoCo Health Department. Upon return, they will be required to be assessed by our Infection Control Preventionalist and complete the CDC standardize essential employee assessment. Read more

Re: COVID-19 Updates

 

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

 

As of today, we still have not had any confirmed cases of Covid-19 and continue to follow the highest standard of infection control practices. The non-visitation policy has not been lifted but our Infection Control Team is working with the Public Health Department Regional Task Force for Covid-19 in Long-Term Care on a plan to allow outdoor visits. The following items will be taken into consideration:

  • Appropriate outdoor spacing to allow for social distancing
  • A plan for symptom screening
  • The maximum number of visitors per day
  • Resident eligibility for visits
  • Scheduling processes
  • Visitation logistics and guidelines

In addition, we are now allowing residents to participate in group activities and group therapies with appropriate social distancing and masking, as well as communal dining in small groups with social distancing. Please note that all of these activities continue to be contingent on not having any COVID cases.

As a reminder, please reach out to Winnie Banda, Activities Director, at 913-383-2001 or 913-401-3819 or email her at wbanda@thehealthcareresort.com to schedule porch or virtual visits. Also, if you have a new email address, phone number or mailing address, please email the information to ShawneePARC-Families@EnsignServices.net or call 913-277-9345.

Thank you for your continued confidence to care for your loved one and for supporting us in our efforts to keep our residents and staff safe. Your discipline, dedication, and grace during this time is greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns or requests for assistance.

 

At your service,

The Leadership Team at Shawnee PARC
