Re: COVID-19 Updates
Dear Patients, Residents, Family and Friends;
In our commitment to keep you informed as we navigate through this pandemic, we would like to provide you with an update.
The Johnson County Health Department’s Epidemiologist and Gerontologist met with the Team to discuss infection control State Survey outcomes, review policies and procedures related to the facility’s Covid Contingency Plan, and inspect our observation unit and Covid Unit. The Department of Health was very impressed with their visit and granted Shawnee PARC the ability to admit patients with Covid to our Covid Unit. We currently have 13 private rooms designated to our Covid Unit, which six are currently occupied with Patients; one Patient was admitted from an affiliated facility and one from the hospital. The Department of Health is certainly glad and grateful that we have the capability, skill, resources, and know-how to be able to provide this much needed service to our community. They will continue to partner with us as we continue to serve our Residents and Patients in our community. Read more
