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

Re: COVID-19 Updates

 

Dear Patients, Residents, Family and Friends;

In our commitment to keep you updated as we navigate through this pandemic, we would like to notify you that we currently have four Residents and four staff members which have been confirmed Covid-19 positive.

The four Residents who tested positive for Covid-19 are being taken care of and monitored closely by our dedicated staff and Medical Director group in our Covid Unit. Our Clinical and Environmental Team continues to implement our contingency plan to contain the potential spread of the virus as much as possible. The four staff members that have tested positive for Covid-19 are quarantined from the facility and currently recovering at home.

All Residents and Staff will continue to be assessed for signs and symptoms of the virus and will be tested weekly per the Johnson County Department of Health guidelines for the Yellow Zone. We are diligently collaborating with the Department of Health to ensure we are doing everything on our end to keep our Residents, Patients and Staff as safe as possible. Should a loved one begin to show symptoms and/or test positive for Covid-19, we will let you know as soon as possible and share the plan with you.

As we mentioned in the previous letter, we are currently devising a plan to reopen the facility per CMS, CDC and JOCO Health Department. The facility must be “Covid Free” for 14 days prior to allowing visitations. Therefore, every time there’s a new Covid case, the 14 day waiting period restarts. We are definitely looking forward to being able to reconnect our Residents and Patients with their loved ones! We will keep you informed as we get more information on reopening and what that will look like for Shawnee PARC.

Thank you for your support and trusting us with the care of your loved one. We will certainly keep you updated as we continue to mitigate through these Covid cases.

 

At your service,

The Leadership Team at Shawnee PARC

We currently do have two Residents who tested positive for Covid in our Covid Unit. Our Clinical and Environmental Team did a wonderful job at implementing our contingency plan to contain the potential spread of the virus as much as possible. The Residents are being taken care of and monitored closely by our dedicated staff and Medical Director group. Through testing, we did note that one staff member was also positive for Covid-19; this staff member was quarantined from the facility and is currently recovering at home. Read more
