FPACC On-site Visitation Guidance and Notification
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that can result in serious illness or death, is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is a new stain of coronavirus that had not been previously identified in humans and can easily spread from person to person. The virus is spread between individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about six feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may be possible that individuals can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.
The following is the process for which on-site visitation will resume at Foundation Park Alzheimer’s Care Center (FPACC) beginning on March 3,2021.
Visitation is resuming but it has strict guidance from the Ohio Department of Health. The safety of our elders is our main priority. Please help us to help you all stay safe and healthy and enjoy your visit by following these steps:
Failure to comply with any of these processes will result in a hazardous situation and may result in the visitation being discontinued immediately.
SCHEDULING A VISIT
To comply with all the requirements placed on visitation, the available times for visitation will be limited to Tuesday through Thursday from 9AM to 11AM and 1PM to 4PM. The process and timing will be reviewed monthly for necessary modifications deemed necessary. All visits must be scheduled in advance with enough time for the facility to make the appropriate arrangements. When scheduling a visit, there are to be no more than 2 maximum visitors and visitation is to last no longer than 1/2 hour (30 minutes). There are to be no visitors under the age of 2 or lacking the maturity to maintain appropriate distance, ability to comply with the visitation safety requirements and acceptable social decorum for the duration of the visit. All visitors must be identified when the visitation is scheduled and only those visitors will be allowed.
PRIOR TO THE VISIT
Call ahead the day of the visit to ensure that you are still able to come as things change quickly during the pandemic and we do not want you to make an unnecessary trip and be disappointed.
Further, our elders physical and mental well-being are of primary consideration. If at any time the resident decides not to visit or has determined that the visit is over based on what they say or do, the visit will be ended.
Prior to and during visitation, the facility will take into consideration the following 6 community factors:
1.Case status in surrounding community;
2. Case status in the home;
3. Staffing levels;
4. Access to adequate testing for residents and staff;
5. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supplies;
6. Local hospital capacity. If any of these factors are considered to present an undue risk or hazardous situation for our elders, then visitation may be discontinued until such time as the situation is resolved.
Don’t Forget Your Mask! Masks are required to be worn during the visitation. The facility can provide the surgical or procedural mask.
DURING THE VISIT
Visitors will only be allowed into the facility in the designated area and all visitors must remain in that designated area the entire time they are in the facility. There will be no restrooms available for visitors. Please take care of your needs prior to your visit. When you arrive at the facility and it is your scheduled visit time, please call the facility and let the staff know you are here. Please remain in your vehicle until you are directed to the designated visitation area.
Please be aware that to maintain sanitation, we use strong chemicals that may “bleach” or damage clothing, so please look before you sit.
All visitors will log in and be screened for COVID in accordance with the CDC and ODH. Hand sanitizer will be made available to visitors and residents for use before, after, and during the visit.
All visitors must maintain appropriate social distance from other visitors and residents (minimum 6 feet). If a resident has more than 1 visitor, then these visitors must maintain appropriate social distance while visiting regardless of the proximity of the individuals prior to or after the visit.
As our residents are cognitively impaired and not able to deal successfully with the restrictions as implemented by the ODH Director’s order and considering their impairment if they are unable to comply with the necessary requirements to visit safely, the in-person visitation may be stopped, and an alternative method of visitation attempted.
All visits are to be contact-free and in accordance with the 6-foot social distancing guidelines. If contact does occur, the visitation will stop immediately, and the exposure will be addressed which may include placing the resident into a 14-day quarantine from the exposure. During this time, the resident will need to be isolated from the other residents and visitation discontinued temporarily.
This is not a final determination on visitation but is the start and will be modified as needed and when needed as determined by the guidance of the Ohio Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control, Lucas County Health Department, the Administration and Clinical staff of Foundation Park Alzheimer’s Care Center and most importantly the consideration of what is in the best interest of our beloved elders.
