The safety and wellbeing of our residents is our top priority. We are doing what we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 within Forest Ridge Health & Rehabilitation, including staying in very close communication with local and state health officials to ensure we are taking all the appropriate steps under current circumstances.
We are taking steps based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as well as Local Health Jurisdiction (LJH) in which the facility resides to reduce the spread and impact of COVID-19, such as:
Due to government privacy requirements, we cannot divulge specific information about the individuals who have confirmed or suspected COVID-19, unless they are your family member and you have the necessary permissions to receive such information.
We know you are concerned about your loved one and are eager to resume visitation. Therefore, we have developed detailed visitation guidelines that will allow for limited visitation while ensuring that we are still following strict infection prevention protocols to keep everyone safe.
We need your help in battling 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 building.
This is a difficult time for everyone. We will continue to provide you with updates. Please know that we are adhering to guidelines from the local and state health departments, which continue to evolve as we learn more about this virus.
We know that you may have questions and we encourage you to contact our center.
