CORONAVIRUS

KEEPING OUR RESIDENTS SAFE
As part of step 3 of the roadmap, the number of named family members or friends able to visit their loved ones in care homes will be increased from 2 to 5, as the visiting restrictions continue to ease. Our residents will be allowed up to 5 named visitors from Monday 17 May. These visitors will need to take a rapid lateral flow test and test negative before every visit. They should minimise physical contact with residents. They must observe social distancing and PPE use and follow all necessary infection control measures. A maximum of 2 visitors will be allowed at any one time or on any given day. Castlegrounds Ltd - are operating a booking system for Visits to control numbers, times, details of visits, people’s ID etc. Please continue to ring Reception on : 0113 4333020 to book a Visit. Nominating and testing the named visitors: The named visitors must remain the same person as far as possible to limit the number of different people coming into the care home. The rapid lateral flow tests must be done on-site, and visitors cannot self-test at home. If the visitor tests positive, they must immediately leave the premises. They must complete a PCR test, which will be provided for them by the care home. Arrangements for ‘essential care givers’ put in place, where close contact with a loved one is critical for the resident’s immediate health and well-being. They will follow the same testing arrangements, PPE and infection control arrangements as care home staff In the event of an outbreak in the care home, all visiting will stop immediately, except for end-of-life visits and essential caregivers. Visits will only pause for a minimum of 14 days rather than 28 days following an outbreak. Infection control All visitors must follow the guidance, procedures, and protocols put into place by Castlegrounds Ltd to ensure compliance with infection prevention control. Visitors should wash their hands for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the home, and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues and clean their hands after disposal of the tissues. Any visitor who tests positive with a rapid lateral flow test should immediately leave the premises. The care home staff will offer them a confirmatory PCR test. Screening questions that we will ask visitors on arrival are: • Have you been feeling unwell recently? • Have you had a recent onset of a new continuous cough? • Have you noticed a loss of, or change in, ordinary sense of taste or smell? • Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past ten days? • Have you had recent contact (in the last 14 days) with anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or with confirmed COVID-19? We will take Visitors temperatures. We will provide Visitors with PPE and assist with Donning and Doffing and safe disposal of PPE. Staff will discuss with Visitors any gifts they have brought for Residents , as they will need to be cleaned by the care home staff to prevent cross-contamination. Castlegrounds will keep a record of visitors’ details. Registered Manager: Michaela Wadsworth Date: July 2020 You can send an email and we will print out in large print for your relative.
