Mitigating Actions Implemented to Prevent or Reduce the Risk of Transmission

At Affinity Healthcare Center, we implemented the following safety procedures:

  • In late February, all personnel at Affinity Healthcare Center received a memo reiterating Infection Control practices (hand hygiene, proper use of PPEs, cough etiquettes, and putting up warning signs for visitors, among others)
  • In early March, we created a plan on how to deal with a situation like that in which we now find ourselves in. We are now implementing that plan.
  • We began screening all visitors including checking their temperatures during the first week of March.
  • We implemented social distancing and a number of other mitigation measures the second week of March, and we began to limit visitors.
  • On March 13th, we ended all visitations by family members or friends and implemented the “transition room” policy, which is described below.
  • At the same time, we began having calls twice a week with all of the administrators, directors of nursing, an outside MD, and our corporate clinical staff to discuss the best practices and get a good picture of what’s occurring on the ground to provide guidance to those in need.
  • All non-essential personnel were asked to work from home on March 16th.
  • All residents and personnel are now required to wear masks at all times.
  • The ___ County Department of Health completed ___ infectious preventative focus survey(s) and they found no deficiencies in our procedures.
