Monday LTC Provider Call - SNFs - Shared screen with speaker view
Is CMS/DHHS approving dentist coming into facilities on a non-emergent basis? We have a separate room for the visits to take place.
We, at Maplewood of Cheshire County are doing out initial testing this week. Just got the kits this weekend.
We will be a week behind in the surveillance testing
Has the vendor indicated what the turnaround time will be for test results?
We had our surveillance testing and we are on day 5 no results still
Why cant the results be emailed to the Administrators?
We are also on day 5 and have only received one test result back out of just under 200.
staff and 10% of residents
These are for 100% staff and 10% of the residents.
We did the release
public health lab
This was the surveillance testing. All swabs were sent to the state lab.
We were told this morning that some of our swabs were diverted to Dartmouth if that helps.
I am being told now that we have received 71 results just now.
Our initial staff testing will be done this Wednesday. Could I get a release of information form prior to this date? Please and thank-you
Just a thought, if the reports are finalized, is it possible to have the long term care facility to pick up the reports in person rather than wait for the fax?

Thank you Kristie
I know it is very difficult to answer questions about each specific case, but in general, can we have some guidance about staff requirements to quarantine if they have family visiting this summer from states other than NH, VT and ME, traveling by personal car, but staying at hotels during the trip and then staying with staff members?
Pertaining to Covid surveys, are they ongoing and will they be repeated as time goes on?
I am with Lake Sunapee VNA, and our spiritual care and MSWs have been assisting hospice patients in facilities with virtual family visits. So one option might be to outsource when possible. Most VNA's are likely in the same position where we are glad to assist in any way we can to support our facility partners.
