Huron Lodge COVID-19 Update
Information as of 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 16, 2020:
We are happy to announce that the ministry has updated its visitor policy, which now allows for caregivers and general visitors. Up to two caregivers are identified by the resident or their substitute decision maker and are able to support the resident in the resident room. General visitors are still invited to visit inside the auditorium or outside in the designated visiting area. More information on these type of visits is available at the links below.
The ministry has also provided guidelines on resident absences from the home. There are two types of absences available for residents:
If you are calling the home for an update on your loved one, please note that the staff are working diligently to provide care and support to the residents. This means that the telephones cannot always be answered. Please leave a message on the nursing station desk with the information you are requesting. The messages are checked throughout each shift.
The Following Protections Have Previously Been Implemented and Remain in Effect:
Active symptom screening of staff, essential visitors and anyone else entering the home. Homes must screen all those entering the home, and screen those in the home twice daily (including temperature checks) with the exception of emergency first responders.
Active and ongoing surveillance of all residents including temperature checks: at least twice daily for all residents (at the beginning and end of the day).
All staff and essential visitors wear surgical/procedure masks at all times for the duration of full shifts or visits in the long-term care home.
Screening for new admissions: Screen and test all new admissions and all new residents must be placed in self-isolation for 14 days
Managing essential visitors. Essential visitors are defined as those who have a resident who is dying or very ill. In these instances, two visitors will be allowed.
Physical distancing of 2 metres of residents in communal dining rooms. Additional staff have been brought in to support each home area during meal service. All staff worked together to create a safe physical distanced dining area for our residents.
Allowing only one work location of staff members.
