VISITATION RESUMES

We are so excited to announce that due to new guidance from CMS, we are now able to allow scheduled visitation by appointment only.  We will still have to follow CDC guidelines.

Please call 434-836-9510 from 9:00-5:00 M-F and schedule your appointment to visit your loved ones. 

Visits will be allowed 7 days a week from 10:00 am-7:00 pm.   Visits are limited to 2 persons at a time with a time limit of 1 hour.  Masks are required and provided at the door.  The resident will also be required to be masked.  If the resident has had both COVID vaccinations you will be able to have physical contact with them if they so desire.  If they have not been vaccinated, social distancing will have to be observed.  We ask that you remain in one area when you visit.

Please see below for additional vistation information:

 

Information to Family Members Regarding Visitation

Coronavirus (CO?VID19) poses a serious threat to the older population and those with underlying health conditions.  This is why the federal government and many state governments have guidelines regarding visitation.  We understand this is difficult, but the safety and sellb eing of your loved ones is our top priority.  We recognize the importance of family visitation for our residents.

As restrictions are being lifted, and we are preparing to open to visitors, we have implemented policies and procedures to keep our residents, families, and staff as safe as possible.  We are asking that you do your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19.  Get the COVID-19 vaccine when available to you and follow all precautions to keep yourself safe by wearing a mask and social distancing.

 What to Expect Upon Visitation:

1.  We will coordinate individual appointments ahead of time in order for us to limit the number of people at one time in the facility and to give everyone a chance to visit.  Appointments will be limited to at least 30 minutes at this time.

2.  You will be informed ahead of time what entrance you are to come to for visitation.  Only two (2) visitors are allowed at a time.  We will provide a face covering for you, and the resident is also required to wear a mask.

3.  Once at the entrance you will be screened.  This will include taking your temperature and questioning you about any signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

3.  If you are asked not to enter the building, please understand this is for the safety of your loved ones and everyone else in the building.

4.  If you are permitted in, please use the alcohol-based hand rub provided.  Keep your mask on at all times over your nose and mouth and any other protective equipment as directed by the facility.

5.  Please do not go to any other areas of the facility.

6.  When your visit is over, our staff will assist you to exit from the same door you entered.  Prior to leaving, please use the alcohol0-based hand rub again.

7.  CMS and CDC continue to recommend facilities, residents, and families adhere to the core principles of COVID-19 infection, including physical distancing (maintaining at leaset 6 feet between people).  This continues to be the safest way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, particularly if either party has not been fully vaccinated.  However, we acknowledge the toll that separation and isolation has taken.  We also acknowledge that there is no substitute for physical contact, such as the warm enbrace between a reaident and their loved one.  Therefore, if the resident is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their visitor while wearing a well-fitting face mask and performing hand-hygiene before and after.  Regardless, visitors should physically distance from other residents and staff in the facility.

To Our Residents, Family Members and Employees:

March 13, 2020 we were required to shut our doors to general visitation.  It is hard to believe all that has happened during this past year. Although we have been able to allow visitation in a limited fashion this past year, it is with great joy that we are able to again open our doors to general visits. It has been so heartwarming to see the expressions on our resident's faces when they see their family members.  Our hope is there will be no changes to warrant the need to close our doors ever again.

We want to provide you with an update on the situation at Roman Eagle Rehabilitation and Health Care Center regarding the novel coronavirus or COVID-19. Ensuring the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our greatest concern.

Since May 8, 2020 (when the federal government issued reporting requirements), we have had a total of 122 residents and 75 staff to have confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Our total as of today, April 7, 2021:

We now have two residents and no employees diagnosed with COVID-19!   When a resident tests positive we notify residents and their representative(s) of their condition and implement protocols for their care and treatment.

We continue to stay in close communication with the regional epidemiologist, and local and state health officials to ensure we are taking all the appropriate steps under current circumstances. We have and continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and Virginia Department of Health including return to work guidance, for staff who test positive. Due to the positivity rate in our community, we continue to test our staff twice weekly.

We also are:

  • Screening residents, staff, and essential vendors for symptoms
  • Practicing proper hand hygiene
  • Enhanced infection control precautions
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection
  • Practicing social distancing, requiring all staff to wear masks and Personal Protective Equipment when indicated.

Due to privacy requirements, we cannot divulge specific information about the individuals who have confirmed or suspected COVID-19, unless they are a family member with the necessary written authorization to receive such information.

We need your assistance in mitigating COVID-19. Please visit the CDC website (www.cdc.gov/coronavirus) to learn how you can help prevent the spread in our community, since continued spread in the larger community increases the chance the virus will work its way into our facility. We will continue to provide you with updates, which are posted on our website, www.romaneagle.org.  Please visit our website for the most recent information. We want you to know that we are adhering to guidelines from CMS, CDC and the local and state health departments, which continue to evolve as we learn more about this virus. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our center.

We are Roman Eagle Strong!
