If we have 1 positive resident, does staff need to wear all PPE in that resident room only or all resident rooms on that unit and while on unit? N-95 masks are being worn at all times

completed. Might have not answered last question correctly then. We have 0 current positive (were you looking for direct line caregiver numbers providing patient care?)

concerned about liability of administering vaccines to individuals other than our residents and staff
Toni Hanson - Bel-Air Nursing and Rehab, Goffstown
17:21
We offer influenza vaccines to our contracted therapy services every year. I would hope we would do the same process for COVID vaccine.
Kelly Adams
17:44
The VNA
Cathy Gray
17:59
orthotist, DME provider- We can vaccinate if they do not otherwise have it.
Kelly Adams
18:15
The VNA's would be a good place to start. You could also ask facilities who they contract with, and just pull together a list.
Luanne Rogers
18:37
WE offer flu vaccine to our residents and staff each year.
pramsey
19:30
We expect that those services from outside the Facility that come in, have been vaccinated through their own entities. Home Care, Hospices, Physician Groups any other medical provider but would be happy to offer if provided to us.
Tracey Hamlin-Landry
19:49
We offer influenza vaccines to our contracted therapy providers every year. I don't think we would be willing to provide to our hospice providers.
pramsey
21:18
I think that will limit our ability to "mandate" a newly offered vaccine.....
Toni Hanson - Bel-Air Nursing and Rehab, Goffstown
22:09
We keep a listing of all employees and contract staffing vaccination status. Indicating vaccination status and dates.
Cathy Gray
22:26
We use a consent form that they sign and we keep on site. Flu vaccine is mandatory.
Rosemary Simino
23:07
Many of us have MOUs with our MACE and are closed PODs. how does this integrate?
lorimcintire
23:33
We offer flu vaccine to all staff, however, multiple staff have already informed us they are not comfortable and will not take a new covid vaccine. Can you provide guidance for additional protective measures, if any, that could be in lieu of not taking vaccine?
Toni Hanson - Bel-Air Nursing and Rehab, Goffstown
23:50
We also use a consent form to all Residents, staff, and contract staff. I do have a hard time getting 100% coverage of staff for Influenza but there are some that are afraid the vaccine is being rushed and don't feel comfortable regarding efficacy and safety.

The visitation guidelines for indoors says that 2 are allowed in phase 2 and 3, but then says only one designated visitor? Which is it for indoors?
Cathy Gray
33:10
Is essential visitor more likely to be for compassionate care than a family member?
Amy R. Rauert
36:08
thank you for the clarification.
Toni Hanson - Bel-Air Nursing and Rehab, Goffstown
36:34
so the difference is Essential is able to touch and get close to the resident but social stays the 6 foot distance and no touching...correct?
Elizabeth A. Talbot
37:05
Correct, Toni Hanson.
Toni Hanson - Bel-Air Nursing and Rehab, Goffstown
37:34
Thank you...that makes it a lot clearer!!
Cathy Gray
39:49
The discussion has helped. Thank you.

Example of our Essential Support Visitor: One of our families opted for the hospice aide to be the consistent/designated visitor as they provide direct care. Family visits as social visitor indoor/outdoor as able. We test the hospice aide with our staff every 10 days.
fvignand
40:23
Are there written definitions of (1) Compassionate Care Visit and (2) "Essential Support Person," and a written distinction between the two.
ABartley

How does the phases impact our testing frequency?

Do we anticipate the Travel Guidance changing anytime soon?
Todd
01:06:02
I apologize if I missed this.... in assisted living, would a resident's private apartment be considered a designated visiting space for eventual indoor social visits or does it need to be a generic visiting space at one location in the facility only?
Ray

We are in a County that contains a large University. Despite that we have had no covid
