We’ll keep your loved ones safe.
The health and safety of our residents, staff, and visitors is our utmost priority. We have taken several proactive measures to protect against exposure and spread of illness and we are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and New York Department of Health closely.
The Steps We Have Taken
We have enhanced our existing safety protocols to minimize the risk of exposure and to provide clinical and operational team members the information and tools necessary to protect themselves and the patients we serve.
The following is a summary of measures undertaken that are consistent with regulatory guidance:
Interdisciplinary task force
Our interdisciplinary team has worked to together to develop efficient and effective procedures and protocols to minimize the risk of exposure and prepare for possible spread.
We monitor and have been communicating with the Department of Health to obtain the most up to date information to allow us to evaluate and implement the most effective prevention and control protocols.
Our clinicians are vigilantly monitoring resident health. We have trained our staff to identify residents who might be at risk of COVID-19 and are prepared to institute precautions for these residents if the need arises.
Employee and contractor screening
We are screening employees and contractors for symptoms or potential exposure to COVID-19 to prevent the introduction of the COVID-19 infection.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning on high touch surfaces and high trafficked public areas with hospital-grade bleach disinfectant. This is done daily, and in many areas, multiple times a day.
We have made hand sanitizer readily available for residents, visitors and staff.
Masks no longer required for visitation
Effective Monday, July 3, 2023, visitors are no longer required to wear a mask while visiting the facility. Visitors must still perform a temperature check and hand hygiene when entering the building.
Going forward, we will ONLY post daily Covid-19 updates online when there is a positive case in the facility.
Silvercrest will continue to follow all CDC and New York State Department of Health guidelines for transmission-based precautions. The safety of our residents is always our top priority.
