I am happy to report that we remain COVID-Free as I am writing you. No staff or Residents have tested positive for COVID-19. We continue to screen all of our staff when they enter the Home with a series of questions as well as a temperature check. We also continue to take Residents’ temperatures and monitor for any signs and symptoms of the Coronavirus.
I wanted to pass on some additional information to you all this week. We completed a survey from the Ohio Department of Health focused entirely on Infection control. These surveys are being conducted across the country to ensure homes are working to prevent the spread of infection.
A surveyor ODOH come to our home for a brief onsite visit. While most of her work was done remotely, reviewing medical records and our policies, she did interview staff from all departments, and left within an hour. I’m happy to say we received no citations or deficiencies for this survey.
Also, I would like to encourage you all to visit our Facebook page “Friends of Little Sisters of the Poor Cincinnati.” We continue to post pictures and information to keep friends and families up to date during this difficult time. You can also visit our website at www.littlesistersofthepoorcincinnati.org for updates about our Home.
As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We are continuing to be vigilant and are doing everything to keep our residents safe from the virus. Thanks for your support during this time.
Sr. Marie Edward, Mother Superior
