On June 25th, Governor Beshear provided guidance to safely open visitation of nursing homes. As part of the reopening initiative, Elliott Nursing and Rehabilitation will begin to allow visitors on July 20th; however, there are specific guidelines that must be followed. Our top priority is keeping our residents and care team members safe, and we feel the guidelines below will ensure their safety.
Visits must be scheduled by using Calendly. No visits will be allowed unless it has been scheduled. Visits will be limited per day and no longer than 30 minutes time per visit.
We will allow only 2 visitors at a time and the visitors must wear masks and practice social distancing at all times which will not allow touching or hugging.
All visits will take place outside of the facility. Visitors are not allowed in care areas of the facility and due to the size and layout of our center, our only option is to restrict visits to an outside area. With that said, please keep in mind that visits may be canceled due to the weather or extreme temperatures.
If a resident is unable to visit outside, we cannot accommodate in-person visits at this time. We can set up a time to connect to the resident by way of video if you contact the Activity Department.
All visitors will be screened at the time of the visit and will be asked to self-monitor and practice all recommended precautions before and after the visit. You will be required to utilize hand sanitizer prior to the visit, wear a mask and sign a visitor attestation form.
Please do not visit if you or anyone that you have been in contact with has been ill or has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Please also report if you or anyone that you have been in contact with becomes ill or is diagnosed with COVID-19 soon after a visit.
Visits can be declined or ceased at any time. This can occur if the guidelines are not followed by visitors or if there is an onset of symptoms or new COVID-19 cases within the center, either with residents or care team members.
Notification of any changes will be posted to our Facebook page and website. It will also be mailed to residents and/or responsible parties. You can also call the center at any time to see if there are any updates or changes to the visitation policy. We will also be updating our website at www.elliottnr.com and will be adding an electronic calendar link to also schedule visits as soon as possible.
Thank you for your time and patience.
