COVID-19 News Update

December 4, 2020

Residents, Families and Partners,

Since our update yesterday, we had a resident who was transported off-site for treatment, and we were informed that the resident has tested positive for COVID.  The resident continues to receive care off-site.  Should they return to our Community, they will be isolated and heightened infection control procedures will be used for any cares provided by our staff.

In light of this positive resident and previously positive employees, we are discontinuing all visitation and small group activities and we will be serving meals in room.  We will follow local and state health department recommendations and CDC guidance.

We are also asking residents (and that families encourage residents) to:

  • Refrain from leaving the Community during this surge in COVID cases in Nevada and the country in general (staff can assist in obtaining any needed items in the interim or connecting with friends/family online);
  • Wear masks when outside of your room;
  • Engage in frequent hand hygiene;
  • Practice good social distancing when outside of your room; and
  • Communicate any changes in how you feel as soon as possible.

We will notify residents’ primary physicians and designated family members of any changes in you or your loved one’s condition, whether potentially related to COVID-19 or not.

Please reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance.  We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.

We will keep you updated as conditions develop.

Sincerely,

Jeanne Bishop-Parise,
Executive Director

 

COVID-19 False Positive Test

May 19, 2020

 

Residents, Families and Partners,

Park Place Assisted Living is pleased to report that we have no known cases of COVID-19 in our facility.

In our communication last week, we noted that we had performed COVID-19 testing on a random sampling of our residents and that one had tested positive for COVID-19. The result was surprising because the resident had no symptoms, had not left the community for several weeks, and was the only positive test result. We also noted that the resident would be retested.

We have now retested the resident twice and both tests came back negative for COVID-19. It appears that the prior test was a false positive and there are not, and never were, any COVID-19 cases at Park Place. We are relieved that our careful and diligent infection control precautions have been effective.

Please reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance.  We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.

We will keep you updated as conditions develop.

Sincerely,

Jeanne Bishop-Parise
Executive Director

 

 

 

COVID-19 Diagnosis Update

May 15, 2020

 

Residents, Families and Partners,

In our communication earlier this week, we noted that one of our residents had tested positive for COVID-19 and had been quarantined in a separate area. We further noted that all residents and staff would be tested for COVID-19. After discussing the matter further with the state/county health department, we have determined that it is not necessary at this time to test all staff and residents. The health department is retesting the resident who tested positive to confirm the accuracy of the original test.

Please reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance.  We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.

We will keep you updated as conditions develop.

Sincerely,

Jeanne Bishop-Parise
Executive Director

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
