Status of COVID 19 Testing at
Dodge Park and The Oasis at Dodge Park

Update for June 8, 2020 :

I am writing to give you an update on our community's Covid-19 status. Although this is such an unpredictable virus, we continue to do what it takes to control what is in our power to control. Thank you for your continued support.

We were able to arrange testing for all our residents and employees again by the National Guard before the state dismantle their role.
The National Guard will be at Dodge Park and Oasis at Dodge Park facilities tomorrow morning, June 9, 2020 between 9am and 11am.

This will be our 3rd base line of all employees and residents testing. We want to ensure that no staff member who currently employed by us is running around without symptoms and carry the virus.

We will keep you all posted on the testing results as soon as we have them.

Dear valuable family members,

We know you are all worried and concerned about the welfare of your loved one. Please be rest assured that we will do all we can to keep our building safe, in whatever method we have control of.

I would like to send an update on multi options we currently offering that you can now communicate, talk and see your loved one. We added a new IPad's at both facility to make easier to many family members per their requests.

OPENING AND VISITATION STATUS

We are in a process of planing to start outdoor visits at our courtyards in the coming weeks. We will finalized our plan after we conclude and review all test results for COVID-19 that will take place tommorrow June 9, 2020. 

As per DPH, As much as possible, long-term care facilities should continue to use alternative electronic methods for
communication between residents and visitors, such as Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or Google Duo. 

The outdoor visits will be a slow process to ensure the safety of our residents.

We will draft a final outdoors visitation protocols within a week or two. 

I am sharing with you the proposed plan:

A long-term care facility may allow in-person visitation in a designated outdoor visitation space, provided that the long-term care facility implements all of the following safety, care, and infection control measures:
  • A long-term care facility staff member trained in such patient safety and infection control measures must remain with the resident at all times during the visit.
  • Visitors must be limited to no more than two individuals. A visitor must remain at least 6 feet from the resident and attending staff member(s) at all times during the visit.
  • Please, no physical contact between visitors and resident (No hugging, holding hands , etc)
  • Visitors can not bring any food or general items including flowers, chocolate, etc to the visit
  • Staff and residents must wear a surgical face mask and visitors must wear a  face mask as well for the duration of the visit. (Facility can provide a mask if needed)
Visits with a resident in a designated outdoor space must be scheduled in advance and are dependent on permissible weather conditions, availability of outdoor space, and sufficient staffing at the facility to meet resident care needs, and the health and well-being of the resident. 

A long-term care facility may limit the length of any visit, the days on which visits will be permitted, the hours during a day when visits will be permitted, and the number of times during a day or week a resident may be visited. 

We will be drafting the full protocols and once completed will be happy sharing with you and start scheduling the visits (hopefully) for later on this month.

Micha Shalev and Ben Herlinger will coordinate the visits in Oasis facility, and Erin Lemoine , (the activity director) will coordinate the visits at the Dodge Park facility.

We know you all eager to visit your loved one. We would like to make sure that we have a sensible plan in place so we can ensure the safety of all parties.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL FAMILY MEMBERS FOR THEIR GENEROUS DONATION TO OUR FRONT LINE HEROES.
