Resident Rights to Have Visitors Under North Carolina Law

As of November 1, 2021, North Carolina law guarantees all residents of Peak Resources’ facilities certain visitation rights, pursuant to N.C. Gen. Stat. 131E-112.5.

VISITATION GUIDELINES

Effective November 12, 2021, CMS (Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services), issued new guidance for visitation in nursing homes.  Visitation is now allowed for all residents at all times. The continued use of outdoor visits and technology to keep families connected as much as possible is highly encouraged, however, indoor visitation has been expanded for all residents and visitors.

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.

Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine, should not enter the facility.
