HOW WE ARE RESPONDING TO COVID-19:
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have implemented a number of measures recommended by the Jersey State Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to best protect the health and safety of our residents and staff. These measures include:
- Suspension of visitation: For the safety of our residents and staff, all visitation is currently suspended, except for imminent end-of-life situations.
- Health check/screening: All individuals/staff are screened for COVID-19 symptoms, including temperature checks upon the start of each shift and every 12 hours while on duty. Any adverse response or temperature readings are addressed according to current guidance and facility protocols.
- Infection Control (IC) & Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): All healthcare personnel are adhering to strict infection control and prevention protocols and wear a face mask while within six feet of residents and one another. Staff have access to the utilization of PPE when interacting with COVID-19 suspected or confirmed residents.
- Limitation of non-emergency offsite appointments: Non-emergency offsite appointments shall be cancelled and rescheduled for a later date and time to prevent unnecessary potential for exposure and help mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 in the community.

Our Facility’s Visitation Rules
Ensuring our residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our number one priority. As of March 12th, we have restricted visitor access to our facilities until further notice.
We understand that certain situations may warrant an exception to this rule and we will do whatever we can to accommodate such exceptions without jeopardizing the health and safety of yourself and others.
Families still can connect virtually with their loved ones. To learn more, please see Connecting with your Loved One, below.
In an effort to ensure you continue to receive the most up to date information, our facilities will begin transitioning to the use of automated calls regarding notification to all residents/resident representatives of a COVID-19 positive case or COVID-19 related death. The calls will be generated on behalf of the facility by a trusted third-party call center, Nexus Health Resources.

We want to stress our level of concern for your loved one and reassure you that we are taking all necessary steps to protect our residents, employees, and our surrounding community.
