Management and Care
Cadia’s fundamental principles guide the way we manage our nursing homes, especially during Covid. We stay up to date with all the CDC guidelines to keep our staff and residents safe. Nursing homes have played a central role in managing COVID-19 outbreaks in the United States, a fact first recognized after an outbreak in a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington. We strive to make sure this doesn’t happen at any of our centers by going above and beyond.
Our Standard of Care
When it comes to the care we offer our nursing home residents, we take pride in always providing the best possible service. Our nurses and caregivers are highly skilled and dedicated to meeting the needs of each individual. We work hard to create a warm and welcoming environment, where residents feel at home. Whether you’re looking for short-term or long-term care, we know that our standard of excellence will exceed your expectations. Call us today to schedule a tour!
Reduce the Spread
There are several ways to reduce the introduction and spread of Covid-19 and the Omicron variant. These include certain visitor restrictions, universal use of source control (masks), symptom screening, and testing of asymptomatic residents.
Residents of nursing homes that suspect or have confirmed cases of COVID-19 should be placed in a private room, but when those isolation facilities aren’t available they may share space if there are no other contraindications.
The HCP should wear a gown, gloves, and a Respirator or Medical Mask. For respiratory protection, we suggest using an N95 respirator rather than just wearing any old surgical mask when caring for all residents who may have COVID-19 around them since they are more susceptible to its effects due to their age group.
Staff and residents of long-term care facilities should be vaccinated against COVID-19. After receiving the vaccine, individuals may experience common side effects (eg, fever, fatigue, headache, chills, myalgia, arthralgia), which may be similar to some of the clinical features of COVID-19. In this setting, management depends upon the types of symptoms that are present and the risk for disease.
Residents without known COVID-19 who are being admitted to a nursing home facility should have negative testing for SARS-CoV-2 within the 48 hours prior to transfer regardless of vaccination status. In addition, patients who are not fully vaccinated should be quarantined for a certain duration of time because of the possibility of a false-negative test and/or acquiring the virus between testing and hospital discharge.
