Wednesday LTC Provider Call - DPHS - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
We have our BD rapid result tester. It did not come with a printer. What is the best way to get results to the state? Is there a form or can we make up our own? Is there specific information that is required for a form we make ourselves?
We have previously positive staff who have tested negative and are now testing positive again. Are they really new positives. Can you help explain this to me.
PC - this was the response i got when i asked Aaron McIntire with the LTCFTesting group "I have a meeting on Friday with our Epi team to discuss how they would like the antigen testing to be reported from LTC facilities. I will follow up with more info once it is available." It sounds like we will have more information Friday or next week regarding submitting the information for the POC tests.
Will there be any changes in the number of residents who can be in the dining room at a time? More than 10?
Are there any new recommendations for residents using nebulizers?
Due to the reopening of schools, staff are being called out of work for their children with standard headaches, sniffles etc. This is a direct impact to staffing. To support the request of staff returning to work can we allow return after negative test result and 72 post symptoms?
Are drive thru's / take out included in the study for higher risk in the coffee shops and restaurants?
Jewish holidays this month as well
If a family takes a loved one home for the holiday and returns after two negative Covid test still 14 day quarantine correct?
@PCiarfella, this is correct. Quarantine is still necessary.
I may have missed it, but did we get a definition ofEssential Care Visitor"?
Residents are asking why staff can come and go as they please while residents are "stuck here". Any suggestions to respond are most appreciated.

Lisa beat me to the post!
For any licensing waiver requests please send to DHHS.firstname.lastname@example.org
Regarding the Friday Q&A follow up call. Is that information available anywhere????
@avalera, are you referring to the extra call we held last Friday to review additional questions? All calls are recorded and posted at https://www.nhhca.org/covid-19/ under past calls and webinar recordings.
For the holidays, if Residents leave and must quarantine upon return, if there is a shortage of private rooms, could Residents who left the facility cohort together for the quarantine process as they are on the same 14 day trajectory? We'd at least be minimizing exposure to roommates who never left the facility. If not, facilities will need to adopt the policy of not letting residents leave if we don't have the room to privately readmit them.
@Lisa Henderson, thank you for sharing that link. I do not see that 9/11 follow-up call listed at the link you shared.
Thank you for noting that I hadn't posted the recording of the Friday 9/11 call yet! I have just updated that webpage to include that recording. www.nhhca.org/covid-19/
Could you please post a link to the CDC recommendations for Neb/CPAP mask use based on the minimal/moderate/substantial levels.
@Kristen Schmidt Thank you!
Hi, that was me. No, I meant one support per person
We are an assisted living in Rockingham county. I am hearing that other communities are allowing hair dressers back in. Is this something that we are allowed to do?
