Confirmed Covid-19 Cases

COVID Update (December 16, 2020)

COVID Update December 16, 2020

Monroe, WI (December 16, 2020) – On December 13, 2020 one resident with COVID-19 passed away after being in the Isolation Unit for ten days.  The family was provided updates daily.  This resident did have chronic medical conditions and was provided comfort care and staff were at the bedside.  Residents with COVID-19 spend 10 days in Isolation on a segregated unit which is staffed by nursing staff.  The Medical Director and personal physicians oversee the care for these residents.  No one to date has been sent to the hospital.  The other cases of COVID-19 reported on December 2 are recovering and have returned to their apartments.  Fighting this virus is very exhausting for anyone, especially for the elderly.  The primary symptoms that we have observed are congestion, cough, some experienced vomiting and diarrhea, and many did lose their sense of taste.  Upon discharge from the Isolation Unit, nurses continue to assess and monitor each resident and the therapy department is providing treatments for strengthening and recovery.

Unfortunately, we are now experiencing a second round of positive COVID-19 cases with both residents and staff testing positive.  We continue to work diligently to care for everyone, and to control the spread of this highly contagious virus.  We have initiated our crisis staffing plan, calling upon others to assist us in the care for our residents.  The staff work under difficult conditions with a heart of compassion and self- sacrifice.

On December 8 we were investigated by a state surveyor from the Department of Health.  The findings reported no citations and recognition for all that we were are doing under these difficult times.

The question that comes to mind is “How did this virus enter and how did it spread?”  We know that this virus is spreading very rapidly in the community, we all see daily news reports and public health provides daily updates as to the number of positive cases and even the number of “presumed” positive cases.  Some of the staff positives have been exposed to a family member who became positive and they were exposed while their family member was asymptomatic.

We follow Infection Control practices and guidelines daily, screening staff and residents daily.  We test staff and residents twice a week.  When a resident shows any symptoms we test them using the rapid testing with results in 15 minutes.  Gowns, masks, goggles/face shields are worn by staff.  Residents are encouraged to wear a mask when out of their room.  In congregate living one positive quickly spreads and we are unfortunately experiencing this despite all of our efforts.

 
 We would like to thank everyone for their support, thoughts, and kind words. We encourage everyone in the community to continue to take precautions – please wear a mask, wash your hands, and social distance. Together we can get through this!
