Resident, Families and Partners:

As we enter into this holiday season in the midst of a COVID surge throughout our country, we wanted send out a letter discussing how we are approaching the holidays in our Community.

COVID-19 Update Letter

 

October 25, 2020

 

Dear Residents and Families:

We wanted to provide you another update on what is going on in our Community related to COVID. We thank you for your continued support of our staff as they work to keep residents safe during this surge of positive cases in Wisconsin.

We still have no residents that are showing signs or symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19.

We have had another staff member test positive today.  As with the other staff member, we have determined that when the individual was in the building, all appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) was used and good social distance was practiced when not providing care.  The individual is isolating at home until it is safe for them to return to work following guidance provided by the local health department and the CDC.

Harbor View is committed to keeping you updated about our response to COVID-19. We’re providing this update to describe our practices relating to COVID-positive patients.

As I am sure many of you are aware, Wisconsin is experiencing an increase in the reported COVID cases.  Given this surge, we are re-implementing certain restrictions to prevent or mitigate the spread of the virus into our facility given that our residents have a higher vulnerability to COVID-19.  Read more

Follow-Up Family Letter

 

 

 

Monday, August 24, 2020

 

To Our Residents and Family Members:

We wanted to take the time to thank you for your continued support and patience during this time. We know many are concerned about the continued spread of COVID-19 being reported.  Ensuring residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment continues to be our greatest concern.

At this time, the doors remain locked and until further notice visitation is limited.  External healthcare providers performing essential care and end-of-life visitation for any residents on Hospice Care and therapy services have increased in the building. We have also recently started back with communal dining and a few communal activities while ensuring social distancing practices to increase the socialization for our residents. Read more

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
