Yesterday, Friday July 31, we received test results showing three more residents have tested COVID-19 POSITIVE. We immediately moved those residents to our secure wing that has a separate entrance and staff.

As previously mentioned, most of our residents who have previously tested COVID-19 POSITIVE are now considered recovered from the illness. This information is unchanged since our last update.

We currently have nine active cases of COVID-19 among our residents.

We currently have one active case of COVID-19 among our staff. That staff member is following quarantine protocols in their own home. All other staff members who had previously tested COVID-19 POSITIVE are now considered recovered from the illness.

We continue to be in regular contact with the Utah Department of Health and we are strictly following their guidance and recommended protocols regarding the treatment, care, and safety of all residents and staff.

As part of our COVID-19 strategy, we have staff members assigned to disinfect our facility throughout the day and night and we have taken special care to focus on any area used by our residents and staff members who tested positive.

All staff and essential medical personnel are fully outfitted with personal protective equipment (PPE) as needed for their respective duties and we continue to prohibit visitors inside the facility.

Dear Residents, Families and Friends,

Thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging time. Your cooperation is vital in allowing our team to focus their efforts on keeping your loved ones safe and cared for. We are providing these updates because we believe that transparency is the best policy.

Since our first residents tested COVID-19 POSITIVE on July 10, we have had a total of 17 residents test COVID-19 POSITIVE. According to CDC and Utah Department of Health guidelines, most of those residents are now considered recovered from the virus.

As previously mentioned, we have had a total of one COVID-19 POSITIVE resident pass away. This information is unchanged since our last updates.

Our facility continues to maintain a secure wing with a separate staff and entrance for the care and treatment of our COVID-19 POSITIVE residents. Until yesterday, Sunday, July 26, the number of residents being treated in that wing had decreased to six. However, on Sunday morning we were contacted by a nursing facility in Salt Lake City asking us to accept two COVID-19 POSITVE residents for care and treatment in our secure wing. We accepted those residents which brings the total number of residents in our secure wing to eight. We expect to admit another COVID-19 POSITIVE resident from a local hospital tomorrow.

As previously mentioned, we have had eight staff members who have tested COVID-19 POSITIVE, plus two more who tested positive over the weekend. All but the recent two staff members have now recovered from the virus. The staff members who tested positive are following quarantine protocols in their own homes.

We continue to be in regular contact with the Utah Department of Health and we are strictly following their guidance and recommended protocols regarding the treatment, care, and safety of all residents and staff.

Dear Residents, Families and Friends,

Thank you for your continued support during the Coronavirus pandemic. Your support and cooperation are vital so our staff can focus on caring for our residents. We are providing these regular updates because we believe it is important to be open and transparent while our state deals with COVID-19.

There continues to be nothing of significance to report at this time. We have no known cases of residents or staff with COVID-19 in our facility.

Since states have begun loosening social-distancing requirements, COVID-19 cases are dramatically on this rise. Please be assured that every precaution is being taken to keep your loved ones safe. We continue to observe restricted access—meaning that only essential staff and healthcare personnel can enter our facility. In most cases, we continue to prohibit visitors.

We are committed to communicate with families of residents, and caregivers of residents (POAs), regarding anything of significance about COVID-19. Please ensure that our facility has the current contact information for families of residents and/or POAs. To update your information, you can contact us by telephone or by using the contact email address at the end of this update.

We will continue to provide the public with updates on this website when anything of significance arises.

We have regular communication with our state’s health department, and we monitor and implement guidance from the CDC on a regular basis.

Like all nursing homes across the country we are still on restricted access—meaning that only essential staff and healthcare personnel can enter our facility. In most cases, we continue to prohibit visitors.

Coupled with providing all the treatment and care our residents require, our top priority is keeping our residents and staff safe. That is why we continue to medically screen our staff each time they enter our facility and we monitor all residents closely for any signs of illness.

Our staff are fully supplied with personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks, gloves, gowns, eye protection, etc., and they use that equipment as required in their respective roles.

While our facility’s restricted access status prevents our residents from visiting with their family and friends, our staff are taking extra care to help provide for our residents’ emotional needs.

We will continue to provide you with updates on this website when we have any new information to share. We also encourage you to contact us directly via email at info@orchardparkrehab.com if you have any questions or concerns.

We will also be providing updated general information as needed on this website.

We welcome these new requirements because they are similar to what we have been voluntarily providing to our residents, resident-families, and POAs from the very beginning of this crisis.

As our nation, state and local community cope with the novel coronavirus pandemic, we want to thank you for your continued support and understanding during these challenging times for all of us.

As is being reported by national news outlets, the CDC and CMS on Sunday, April 19, announced a new initiative to require greater transparency for the reporting of COVID-19 cases at long-term care facilities. Moving forward, nursing homes will be required to inform residents and their families about any COVID-19 cases in their facilities.

Like a hospital, our healthcare professionals routinely deal with infectious diseases. They received such training through their formal education as well as ongoing training on the job. Infectious disease control is part of their everyday work experience.

Unique to COVID 19, The Federal Government, State Government, and Medicare have required additional policies and procedures which we have implemented immediately.

We continue to get up-to-the-minute guidance from these agencies and will implement new requirements as we receive them.

As of Friday, March 13, 2020, all facilities like ours, across the nation, are required to be on restricted access—which means that only essential personnel are permitted in the buildings. In most cases, visitors are not allowed.

To contact your loved one, please call their cell phone, or email or text them. To speak to a facility representative send an email to: info@orchardparkrehab.com

We ask for your patience as we implement the new requirements and we assure you we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of residents, patients and staff.
