Pandemic Update: Something we have all learned throughout the Pandemic is adaptation to change. At Generations Senior Living, we have and will continue to modify policies and procedures to meet state and federal requirements and to ensure the health and safety of our residents, employees and visitors. For the most current policies regarding masking, vaccination status, visitation and other questions, please feel free to contact the community directly.
HOW DOES GENERATIONS PROTECT RESIDENTS AND EMPLOYEES FROM THE VIRUS?
While no one can guarantee an individual will not contract the coronavirus, at Generations Senior Living we have implemented the following safeguards to assist in minimizing the exposure:
- All residents and employees are monitored daily for symptoms.
- Employees wear face masks daily when required and additional protective clothing (gloves, gowns, eye protection) are utilized as needed.
- Hand hygiene is required of employees and encouraged and assisted with all residents including the use of hand sanitizers.
- The common areas are cleaned often with industrial cleansers and supplies.
- The communities follow the Ohio Department of Health guidelines for visitation between residents and family members.
Our communities participate in employee surveillance testing for the virus, as well as targeted resident testing if symptoms are present.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A RESIDENT OR EMPLOYEE CONTRACTS COVID-19?
Should a resident or employee contract COVID-19, our first response will be to ensure that individual receives the appropriate medical care and services. We will notify the county health department and begin a collaboration with them in implementing best practices for any other resident or employee who may have been exposed to that individual. This could include self-quarantine, testing and any other measures deemed necessary by the health department.
In addition, we will ensure that all residents, responsible parties, and employees are aware of the positive case and appropriately advised of any precautions that should be implemented at that time.
HOW DOES GENERATIONS STAY INFORMED?
To implement and promote the best policies for the safety for all, it is vitally important that we remain informed about the latest information in managing and containing the virus. At Generations Senior Living, we not only stay informed, we assist at the state level in the development and implementation of policies optimal for senior living communities.
A principal of Generations Healthcare Management is also on the Board of Directors of the Ohio Healthcare Association, the state’s largest association of long-term care providers. In this capacity, we combine practical experience with best practices in developing policy that can be applied throughout the long-term care continuum.
In addition, we monitor the ongoing news and information from:
- Ohio Healthcare Association (OHCA)
- American Healthcare Association (AHCA)
- Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
