Have Trust In Your Health Care Provider

By Liz Pencak

The world of health care tends to be a destination most people would prefer not to visit. Sure, health care is one of those “necessary evils” in life, and when we do need medical services, we are thankful the services are accessible. Nonetheless, most people would rather do anything else than go to the doctor.

The year 2020 has certainly thrown us a few health care curveballs. The novel CORONA Virus (COVID-19) is at the top of the list. This virus has not only exacerbated our desire to avoid health care – it has taken it to an extreme – people are literally fearful of entering a hospital or physician’s office for fear of exposure or receiving a diagnosis they do not wish to hear.

In uncertain times, one thing still holds true: ignoring health issues will not make them go away! As we age our bodies tend to remind us of this … sometimes on a daily basis. Trust your instincts and be sure to utilize the adaptive methods of communication with those in the medical field. Telemedicine and virtual visits have seen a massive amount of traffic/utilization. Likewise, if an elderly loved one now requires assistance, or a change in living environment, I think you will find providers graciously willing to provide information and assist in anyway possible.

Take our campus – The Village at Marymount – as an example. The Village at Marymount is able to provide services including assisted living, skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, long-term care, and secured memory care. Each of our service areas received a deficiency-free survey in 2019. Most recently in the last few weeks, the Ohio Department of Health conducted an infectious disease survey (in response to COVID-19) with the result yielding yet another deficiency-free survey.

Long story short – continue to trust in the health care providers who remain true to their mission. Do not be afraid the reach out in order to get the information or the care you need. Trust in your health care provider.

Resident Face Covering Requirements

Effective June 22, 2020, all short-term residents at The Village at Marymount are required to wear surgical masks during direct care — and when they are out of their rooms participating in an activity or enjoying the common area.

If any resident has a concern with being able to wear a mask given their medical condition, and/or is having difficulty with the mask, then please notify a supervisor so that the issue can be addressed during the resident’s care plan meeting.

Further direction will be announced soon for long-term care resident face coverings.

This Week’s COVID-19 Update

Hello Village at Marymount Families & Staff:

As we reported to you last week, we had an additional or probable confirmed case for the coronavirus.

As part of our action plan, we immediately implemented our COVID unit plan on a portion of a wing of the Villa St. Joseph Skilled Care Unit. We continue to work with our physician infectious disease consultant, local health department, and ODH to do contact tracing and we will implement any further recommendations they may have.

We want to assure you any staff member that has been in contact with this individual has been wearing personal protective equipment. Also, the individual continues to do well and people with minimal to no symptoms of the virus are often shedding much lower numbers of the virus than those with symptoms – which again is a good thing!

To recap we have already implemented enhanced infection control precautions, visitation, monitoring, screening and quarantine guidelines as required by State and Federal authorities. Since March 2020, we have followed the instructions and guidelines of the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

If we need to contact a family member with updates about a specific resident, then we will reach out to them directly. Out of respect to those affected and their families, and in accordance with privacy laws, we will not share details publicly regarding our positive cases.

We will, however, share information regarding all of our positive cases with the department of health.

Prayers from Bishop Roger Gries … Sister Mary Alice, our Director of Mission Integration … and the Sisters are embraced daily by us all.

If you have any questions please reach out to Executive Director Sue Nall (snall@marymounthcs.org). We look forward to the day when we can safely welcome you back to visit your loved ones as you have done in the past. Thank you!

March 2020 COVID-19 Update

The Village at Marymount took proactive measures at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and implemented the following procedures and protocols to ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff:

  • Visitation limitations
  • Social distancing
  • Increased hand hygiene measures
  • Required all staff to have their temperature taken and be screened for respiratory symptoms daily prior to their shift
  • Required all residents to have their temperature taken and be screened for respiratory symptoms daily
  • Key nursing leadership is consulted 24/7 for any questionable temperatures or respiratory symptoms
  • Implemented a policy where residents will receive medications, dine, and receive therapy in their room unless specific care requires otherwise
  • Staff members are required to properly wear a mask at all times during their shift

As the COVID-19 landscape continues to change, we recently stepped up our proactive measures, in an effort to keep EVERYONE safe, to include:

  • A designated area on Villa St. Joseph’s first floor for monitoring temperatures, and signs or symptoms of COVID, for 14 days upon admission or readmission.
  • At the conclusion of the 14-day monitoring period, residents are moved to units on the second floor of Villa St. Joseph and Clare Hall.
