Local Nursing Home Statistics

St. Johns: 

  • 37 Covid Positve Patients
  • 12 Employees Covid Positive
  • 10 Patient deaths

St. Anns:

  • 36 Covid Positive Patients
  • 27 Employees Covid Positive
  • 10 Patient Deaths.

 

St. Anns leadership stated that Covid positive patients that do not want to go to the hospital, can stay at the facility if those are their wishes. Leadership felt that this way, their patients would not be occupying hospital beds!

No numbers reported from the Episcopal Homes – Mt. Hope/Thurston Rd/ or the Jewish Home. They only have to report it to the state if they have more than 5 deaths.

Patient signature requirement changes for Suspected or COVID Positive Patients

CMS has ruled that verbal consent from the patient can used to sign on behalf of the patient, therefore reducing the risk of contamination of equipment, pens etc.

DOCUMENTATION must be done that the patient gave verbal consent to sign on their behalf. This can be done in the remarks section of the signature page, this will still be a section 1 signature.

Example: “Patient was a suspected (or known) COVID-19 patient and gave us verbal consent to sign on the patient’s behalf.”

Daily Update 04/14/2020

General Operation Updates:

  • As a reminder, N95 masks are of limited quantity and you are responsible for them both on and off duty. From a supply standpoint, we cannot afford to replace masks for employees leaving them on the ambulances after each shift.  Please take them with you and take care of them while off duty.
  • We are working on getting a donation of a small supply of supply of full face shields (as seen below). Though it would be a limited supply, if anyone is interested in wearing one please email Deputy Chief Bove at mbove@monroeambulance.com and he will let you know when we get them. These are ideal for those that wear glasses, and will also prolong the life of masks by keeping the mask clean and dry.

- Any change in facial features (Including facial hair, major dental work, etc.) should get re-tested

o Damaged, torn, sliced, or broken straps

- AT NO TIME shall any employee be denied a fit test if there is any question that a test is needed

IT Updates:
- When you wipe down laptops with CaviWipes, etc., please turn off the laptop first and wait at least five minutes before powering it back on to allow the cleaner to dry. Thanks and stay safe!
