We are looking ahead to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday home visits. We expect that COVID-19 transmission levels will continue to be high. We need your help when returning your family member to their respective homes.
We do not have the nursing staff available to do rapid testing upon return. We are asking that families complete a COVID-19 home test on their family member prior to returning and complete the form that we provide (below). We do not need the actual test you used just the results on the form.
Good News!! Misericordia has already held one COVID-19 vaccination booster clinic for residents on 11/9, and there are 2 more scheduled for 11/16 and 12/6. (You can still get your resident vaccinated/boosted on your own, if you do not want to wait.) Staff will also be able to receive boosters at these clinics.
Each week the CDC publishes the Covid Community Transmission Level for every county in the country. The level is used to describe the amount of spread within the community and healthcare providers use this to determine appropriate infection control measures.
Each week this information will be posted throughout Misericordia and will be shared in Mis Biz so that you are prepared when coming to the campus and planning visits with your family member.
