Message from Governor Northam to Nursing Home and Long Term Care Staff

We understand the importance of staying connected during these uncertain times. While we work to ensure your loved ones are cared for, we would like to sincerely thank our centerโ€™s families, friends, and our community for your unwavering support. Take a listen to this message from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and be sure to call us to schedule a virtual visitation with your loved one soon.

Activities in Motion

Although we are limiting visitation to prevent unnecessary exposure to COVID-19 we have plenty of opportunities in place to keep spirits up! Our residents are able to take advantage of our exclusive Activities in Motion programs that help cultivate good physical health, spiritual well-being and continue to foster life-long interests.

Watch this video to learn more.

Interactive, exclusive therapeutic activities designed to motivate our patient's minds and bodies for a total wellness experience.

[03/14/20]   We wanted to take a moment to share with you the President's address from earlier today. After taking his comments into consideration, along with the CMS and CDC guidelines, we decided to further limit visitation to our center in order to protect our patients from potential exposure.

You can see the full clip here:

[03/13/20]   Pursuant to regulatory advice and in order to continue to ensure the well-being of our residents and staff, we have made the decision to restrict all visitation temporarily at this time. This decision comes amid statewide concerns over respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19.

Like you, our top priority is the care of your loved one and we want you to feel confident that our patients are continuing to receive the highest level of care. We trust that you will understand this measure is being put in place for their protection. There are interim electronic options for virtual visitation and we will be glad to work to put you in contact with your loved one by one of these methods.

There will be circumstances when an in-person visit is necessary and in these instances we will facilitate a complete screening to appropriately ensure continued safety. Please contact the Center should you need emergency consideration.

We are continuing to follow CDC and CMS infection control protocols in the Center and are continuously reviewing our internal systems and policies with all staff.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time as we take this and all necessary precautions to ensure the health and well-being of everyone at our Center.

[03/10/20]   An important update on the precautionary measures we are taking to limit the spread of all viruses, especially Coronavirus (COVID-19), to our residents, staff, and visitors.

At this time, we are discouraging all visitation per CMS and CDC recommendations and guidelines. We are also asking that only immediate family members visit, if necessary, and that they make sure to fill out our screening questionnaire before every visit. Immediate family members must answer whether they are sick, if they have traveled outside the U.S. in the past 14 days, and if they have had contact with someone who has been diagnosed or is under investigation for COVID-19. Those who answer yes to any of the screening questions or show signs of illness will be asked to postpone their visit. If your visitation is restricted, we will help you communicate with your loved one by phone.

In addition, we are limiting entry of visitors to ONE entrance. The designated entrance will be the area where our Service Ambassador is. We are also restricting our visitation hours to times when our Service Ambassador is working.

Everyone in our Center (staff, residents, families, volunteers, contractors, vendors, outside specialties, providers, etc.) are being asked to limit physical contact while in our Center. For example, hand-shaking and hugging should not take place. We are encouraging 6 feet spatial distance when appropriate.

As a reminder, if you are an immediate family member of a resident and must visit, please make use of hand sanitizer available at the front desk or wash your hands prior to every visit.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we take all necessary precautions to ensure the health and well-being of everyone at our Center.

[03/09/20]   A quick update on what weโ€™re doing to limit the spread of viruses, especially Coronavirus, to our residents, staff, and visitors. You may have noticed our signs asking anyone who is sick to please stay home. We are also asking all visitors and staff to answer a few questions including if they feel sick, if they have traveled outside the U.S. in the past 14 days, and if they have had contact with someone who has been diagnosed or is under investigation for COVID-19. Anyone who answers yes to the questions will be asked to postpone their visit, or will be sent home until further notice. As an extra precaution, we are also asking all visitors to use the hand sanitizer we have provided as they enter our center and when they leave. Still, itโ€™s important to stress that the best defense is to wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds to effectively kill any germs or viruses.

We want you to know we are following CDC and CMS infection control protocols, and have reviewed our internal systems and policies with all staff. We are continuously monitoring CDC and the Virginia Department of Health for any new recommendations.

We will continue to take all necessary precautions to ensure the health and well-being of our residents, staff, and visitors and will update you should changes occur. Thank you!

[03/03/20]   Youโ€™re probably hearing a lot about the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. With the attention on it, we want to let all of our families know weโ€™re proactively taking steps to limit the spread of viruses, especially Coronavirus, to our residents, staff, and visitors. You can help us by continuing to practice good hygiene! This includes washing your hands often for at least 20 seconds, and using alcohol-based hand sanitizer. If youโ€™re visiting our center, stop by our front desk for some sanitizer and be sure to say hello to our Service Ambassador! If you have a cough, remember to cough into the fold of your arm. If youโ€™re sick, please stay home, rest up and plan to visit our center when youโ€™re all better.

Thank you for helping us reduce the spread of viruses!

Wishing you and your family a healthy and happy 2020!

From our family to yours...

A huge congratulations goes out to Veronica Fojas, our November Employee of the Month! Veronica is our Service Ambassador and Payroll for Bayside. Most recently she has received the Service Ambassador position as a companywide change from Receptionist.

She has gotten the opportunity to connect more with our patients and make sure they have the resources they need to enjoy their time here, and be comfortable going home. All of our patients have given positive feedback on her connections with them! Despite having her title, and position change a bit, Veronica is on top of her work! She is eager to help out and always is willing to take on additional tasks, always in a timely manner. She truly knows what it is like to contribute to the dream team and we sure are thankful to have someone like her on our team! Veronica goes above and beyond every time, and for that, we thank you!
