COVID-19 UPDATE

November 23, 2020

 To Our Residents, Family Members and Employees:

We want to provide you with an update on the situation at Roman Eagle Rehabilitation and Health Care Center regarding the novel coronavirus or COVID-19, including the number of confirmed cases as well as efforts we are undertaking. Ensuring the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our greatest concern.

Since May 8, 2020 (when the federal government issued reporting requirements), we have had a total of 76 residents and 42 staff to have confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Our total as of today, November 23, 2020:

  • We now have no cases of COVID-19, either employees or residents.  When a resident tests positive we notify residents and their representative(s) of their condition and implement protocols for their care and treatment.
  • All residents and staff are being tested weekly. We are following all required guidelines.

Roman Eagle is staying in close communication with the regional epidemiologist, and local and state health officials to ensure we are taking all the appropriate steps under current circumstances. We have and continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and Virginia Department of Health including return to work guidance, for staff who test positive.

  • Restricting visitation and entry of people to the building
  • Screening residents, staff, and essential vendors for symptoms
  • Practicing proper hand hygiene
  • Enhanced infection control precautions
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection
  • Practicing social distancing, requiring all staff to wear masks and Personal Protective Equipment when indicated

Due to privacy requirements, we cannot divulge specific information about the individuals who have confirmed or suspected COVID-19, unless they are a family member with the necessary written authorization to receive such information.

We also understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important to our residents. Family members are encouraged to connect with their loved ones through video chat, calling, texting, or by internet.  Our Activities Staff will be glad to assist you.  Unfortunately, we can no longer allow residents to be brought out of their rooms for window visits.

We need your assistance in mitigating COVID-19. Please visit the CDC website (www.cdc.gov/coronavirus) to learn how you can help prevent the spread in our community, since continued spread in the larger community increases the chance the virus will work its way into our facility.

This is a difficult time for everyone. We will continue to provide you with weekly updates, which are posted on our website, www.romaneagle.org.  Please visit our website for the most recent information. We want you to know that we are adhering to guidelines from CMS, CDC and the local and state health departments, which continue to evolve as we learn more about this virus.

We appreciate your support and continued cooperation.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our center.

We are Roman Eagle Strong!

Sincerely, 

Dan Setliff, Administrator

 

COVID-19 VACCINATION

This is to inform you that we may have a COVID-19 vaccine in the near future.

At this time, we don’t have a specific date or details about the vaccine, but we have enrolled this facility with the Virginia COVID-19 Vaccination Program, through the CDC.

Long term care facilities have been hit the hardest, and for this reason, will probably be the first to receive the vaccine.

As we continue to get information from the federal government, we will convey this information to you, our residents, families, and employees.

The CDC and FDA are continuously monitoring the safety of their vaccine and working to clear up any false misinformation.  If you have questions, please check the CDC website for more information.
