Grafton Oaks has had no postive Covid-19 cases in the last several months.  Currently, all of our residents are 100% up-to-date on their vaccinations.  Additionally, 100% of our staff have received their first 2 vaccinations and  approximately 2/3’s have received the booster dose, with those numbers increasing as staff becomes eligible for it.

 

We recognize that nursing homes are at high risk for contracting and spreading infectious diseases including COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). Our utmost concern is for the health and well-being of each of our residents and to ensure our staff is healthy and able to continue to care for residents.  Grafton Oaks is currently holding open visitation of our residents, however; due to shared patient rooms and few meeting areas, we do recommend that you call ahead and ask for our Social Worker to schedule a private visit!

 

We continue to take cautionary measures and follow Ohio Department of Health, Montgomery County, OSHA and CDC guidelines. Please review this information and see the precautions we are taking to protect against COVID-19.

 

The measures we are taking include:

  • Clear and continued communication with staff, residents, and visitors

    • Posting signs and reminders at the facility

    • Sending newsletters to our families when there are changes to our procedures or Covid 19 status

    • Posting information to our website

  • Protection with our workforce includes:

    • Screening employees and residents for symptoms of acute respiratory illness (fever, cough, difficulty breathing)

    • Encouraging sick employees to stay home and call in replacement staff

    • Training and ensuring proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE)

  • Protection with our residents includes:

    • Separating new and non-vaccinated residents from others

    • Increasing cleaning in common areas

  • Protection of all visitors, vendors, and deliveries includes:

    • Screening visitors and vendors for symptoms of acute respiratory illness (fever, cough, difficulty breathing)

    • Changes in procedure of non-essential vendors and deliveries

    • Encouraging family and friends to reach out socially to residents to help with feelings of loneliness and isolation

We appreciate the confidence and trust you have in us to care for family members. We will keep you informed as we navigate the ongoing situation.
