With a national emergency now declared, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has restricted ALL skilled nursing visitors except in end of life situations.
Based on the guidance as a result of the emergency declared yesterday, we will amend some of the practices we began earlier in the week.
Any normal visiting practices are suspended until the emergency is declared ceased. We will also implement some internal changes and possible restrictions of gatherings under our roof.
We know these interruptions and restrictions are very hard.
Please know we have no reason to suspect anyone here has COVID-19 and if a case were to be developed, we would notify the family.
Please contact the nursing station or social worker for more information and for arranging telephone, video and Facebook chats.
Please continue to reach out to us and follow our webpage, www.nazhome.org for more information.
