The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the NH Department of Health & Human Services require that Nursing Homes have visiting protocols that help reduce the likelihood of COVID-19 exposure to our patients and residents.
Visits are available to all of our residents. We recommend visiting between the hours of 11:00am – 7:00 pm to support resident safety and the delivery of care. All visits should follow CMS’s Core Principles of COVID-19 Prevention :
♦ Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine, should not enter the facility. All visitors will be screened upon arrival.
♦ Hand hygiene is essential – use of alcohol-based hand rub is preferred.
♦ Face mask (covering mouth and nose) is required at all times. If a visitor is unable to wear a face mask during the visit, please contact us in advance for assistance with a safe visit.
♦ During periods when the Rate of Community Transmission is Substantial or High, eye protection (goggles or face shield) is required at all times while in the facility.
♦ Maintaining a safe social distance of at least 6 feet from other residents and staff is required.
► All Visitors should self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms before arrival. Visitors with COVID-19 symptoms must postpone their visit. COVID-19 Symptoms may include:
♦ Fever (feeling feverish or a temperature of 100.0°F or higher)
♦ Respiratory symptoms such as a runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, cough or shortness of breath
♦ Whole body symptoms such as muscle aches, chills and severe fatigue
♦ New gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
♦ Changes in your sense of taste or smell
► Risk Factors of Exposure to COVID-19:
♦ Close contact with someone is who suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days (Note: healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients while wearing appropriate personal protective equipment are not considered to be “close contacts”)
♦ Unvaccinated individuals who have traveled outside of New England in the past 10 days
► Visitor Vaccination & Testing:
♦ Vaccination is highly encouraged and we must ask about the vaccination status of all visitors, but vaccination is not required to visit.
♦ Proof of vaccination is not required.
♦ Testing on your own before coming to the facility for a visit (ideally within 2-3 days) is strongly encouraged.
Visiting the facility during periods of active COVID-19 Outbreak or Outbreak Investigation does bring risk of transmission to visitors as well. Vaccination and following the Core Principles of COVID-19 Prevention can reduce but does not eliminate this risk.
