*** NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 ***
May 28, 2020
Gov. Greg Abbott ordered that 100 percent of nursing home residents and staff be tested for Coronavirus. We are working with state health agencies to accomplish such. COVID-19 testing is scheduled for May 30 for all residents and staff.
We were notified on March 28 that one employee tested positive for COVID-19. This staff member has not worked at our facility since March 25. The employee was not a caregiver, worked in housekeeping using bleach while on site, wore gloves and donned a mask for the three days prior to last day on duty.
Also, the Texas Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program is hosting a weekly Q&A for Families of LTC Residents. Please visit the organization’s Facebook page for more information and event details at https://www.facebook.com/texasltcombudsman/.
Our facility is under complete quarantine with only essential medical personnel permitted inside. We continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control, Local Health Department, and Texas Health and Human Services guidance in medically assessing and examining employees at the beginning and end of each shift. We are diligently monitoring and assessing residents and employees, following the disinfecting and housekeeping protocols, adhering to social distancing guidelines, and numerous other preventative measures. Residents have been assigned representatives to aid with communication to family members via Smartphones, tablets, and computers to help minimize feelings of social isolation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends who have lost loved ones due to COVID-19. As our nation and the world experience the impact made by the Coronavirus pandemic, rest assured we have implemented the best available precautions and have the appropriate supplies needed to care for your loved one. If you have questions or comments, please contact Administrator Stephen Cutshaw at SCutshaw@paramounthc.com. Please check back to our web site for further updates.
