PEAK RESOURCES RESIDENTS/REPRESENTATIVES AND FAMILY MEMBERS

We know many of you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and how it may impact our Peak Resources’ facilities. Ensuring residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our first priority. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with state and local health departments have recommended a variety of steps that we are implementing to help reduce the potential for the virus to enter our building and/or to prevent or reduce the risk of transmission.

  • Visitor restrictions, communal dining and group activities may be restricted per CDC/CMS guidelines
  • Screening all who enter the facility (including staff) for fever and other symptoms
  • Exercising proper hand hygiene and cough/sneeze etiquette
  • Hand hygiene products are available, such as alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • All who enter the facility are required to wear a face mask or cloth covering over mouth and nose
  • All residents will be required to wear a face covering if exiting their room for any reason
  • Residents may be required to cover their mouth and nose when staff enter the room
  • Out of facility appointments will only be allowed if medically necessary
  • We are discouraging resident therapeutic leaves of absence – residents will be isolated for 14 days upon return to the facility
  • Isolation units established for resident admissions and confirmed cases of Covid-19
  • All admissions to the facility will be “isolated” for 14 days to monitor for symptoms
  • Residents are assessed every shift to identify signs/symptoms of COVID-19

VISITATION GUIDELINES

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services gave approval for nursing homes in North Carolina to allow for visits, communal dining, and group activities with nursing home residents under certain circumstances.

The continued use of outdoor visits and technology to keep families connected as much as possible is highly encouraged. Indoor visitation, communal dining, and group activities will only be permitted if there has been no new onset of COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days and the facility is not currently conducting outbreak testing.

Visitation may be conducted through different means based on the facility’s structure and residents’ needs, such as in resident rooms, dedicated visitation spaces, outdoors, and for circumstances beyond compassionate care situations. Regardless of how visits are conducted, there are certain core principles and best practices that reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Visitors who are unable to adhere to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention will not be permitted to visit or should be asked to leave.
