*** NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 ***
August 10, 2020
We are happy to report that four of our COVID-19 positive residents have been deemed recovered. To recap recent events, we currently have 39 residents in our facility and two residents in local hospitals who are COVID-19 positive, bringing the total to 41 residents. We also have four COVID-19 positive employees. Positive employees will not return to work until they are deemed recovered.
As you may have heard, on Aug. 6 Texas Health and Human Services Commission issued limited visitation rules regarding nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. We are reviewing the requirements for visitation and will communicate with you before any actions are taken.
Due to the constant change in the number of COVID-19 test results pending, we will only send updates when there are COVID-19 positive cases or when COVID-19 positives have been deemed recovered. COVID-19 tests are administered for any resident or employee exhibiting signs and symptoms of COVID-19 or when directed by the local health department. Random COVID-19 testing can occur during times of potential exposure, when directed by the health department, or when ordered by a physician. If your loved one has been exposed, a COVID-19 test will be administered. If your loved one tests positive for COVID-19, you will receive a personal phone call.
Please know we are working closely and diligently with the city of San Antonio Metro Health District and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. Residents in our facility are either under quarantine or complete isolation if COVID-19 positive. Only essential medical personnel are permitted inside. Our staff have been fitted with and wear KN95 and N95 masks and face shields. We continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control, the 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 COVID-19 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 Deb Wampler at DWampler@paramounthc.com. Please check back to our web site for further updates.
