In keeping with best practice and our unwavering commitment to providing the highest level of care to residents, we are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) , World Health Organization (WHO), and PA Department of Health (PADOH)

Activities, Beauty Shop, and Dining:

All activity programming, beauty shop appointments, and dining services are following guidelines provided by the Department of Health, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the Centers for Disease Control.

Resident Item Drop Off Instructions:

If you have personal items that you’d like to drop off for your family member or loved one, we now have a system in place to receive those items. Please pull through to the main Haven entrance, temporarily park, and place items on the shelving available directly inside the sliding door. Pre-labeling your items with the name and address/room number of the residents is expected to ensure proper delivery. 

Team Member and Vendor Screening:

We also implemented additional screening protocols for all team members, vendors (working on necessary equipment), lab/x-ray technicians, and hospice staff. In addition to having their temperature checked, all are screened as directed by CMS.

Recommendations:

1.       Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face, eyes and nose. Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
2.       Consult a healthcare provider if you experience signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath, and sore throat.
3.       Maintain appropriate social distancing and wear a mask when in the presence of others.

Updates:

This is an ever-evolving situation and we will continue to communicate as often as possible.  Please also utilize the main Valley View Number (717)935-2105 for updates.
