Staff Doing Heroic Work In Difficult Times 

As we proactively manage COVID at Villa St. Joseph, I assure you staff is following strict PPE guidelines when working in all patient areas.

The September 21 resident testing yielded two more positive cases. Our weekly cumulative total is 30 resident and staff cases. This is the total number of cases from the onset of the virus in March through today.

We have four (4) Villa St. Joseph residents in-house with no or minor symptoms and they are isolated. We are confident we traced these cases to one source.

Good news: the majority of our staff results are in and so far, no staff member tested positive during yesterday’s round of testing. Marymount Place continues to have NO staff or resident cases.

Staff are wearing required PPE — face shields, N-95 masks, gowns, and gloves — when caring for residents. They also follow CMS testing mandates. Fortunately, we are not seeing the same classic symptoms of the virus as we did in the Spring. No one who tested positive has a fever. Most have minor symptoms, like a stuffy nose, which can be mistaken for allergies or a cold.

We are diligently monitoring all VSJ residents and staff around the clock and work with our clinical team to manage our cases. We will continue weekly testing for Villa St. Joseph residents and staff until we have no cases for 14 days

Staff know it is imperative that they practice extra cleaning, contact tracing, rapid testing, reporting … plus proper use of PPEs and hand sanitization. We have limited movement between buildings. Trust that we are all doing what we can to minimize the spread of the virus and keep everyone safe and healthy.

I want to thank our staff. They are working as an unbelievable team and have stepped up to help in many ways.  They continues to exceed expectations. The Activities Team is working hard to keep families connected through window and FaceTime visits. We appreciate your patience during these difficult times!

If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me. May God bless you, the Sisters, the residents, and staff at The Village at Marymount.

Structured Visits Begin at Villa St. Joseph  

This year has been extremely challenging for all of us – to say the least. With the prayers of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis, our weekly blessings from Bishop Roger, commitment from our staff, and your patience, we continue to fare well as we navigate the COVID-19 landscape.

Now that the Ohio National Guard has conducted COVID-19 testing for Villa St. Joseph staff, we are offering structured visitation for Villa St. Joseph residents and families. To schedule a visit, please call us at 216-332-1100 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Representatives can sign up for one (1) visit per week, and a maximum of two (2) visitors will be permitted at one time.

In addition to having staff tested for the coronavirus, we are required to consider the following measures which may alter our visitation plan:

  • Case status in the surrounding community
  • Case status in the nursing home
  • Staffing levels
  • Access to adequate testing for residents and staff
  • Personal protective equipment supplies
  • Local hospital capacity

The decision to move forward with outdoor visitation considered requests from families and residents and the impact on the quality of life that a prolonged loss of connection can have on an individual. The plan was made in consultation with advocates and providers in the aging and development disabilities communities. Guidelines for visitation were jointly developed by the Academy for Senior Health Sciences, Leading Age Ohio, the Ohio Assisted Living Association, the Ohio Health Care Association, and the Ohio Medical Directors Association.

Please remember COVID-19 is still out there and we must remain vigilant to ensure everyone’s safety. In additional to our structured visitation guidelines, you will also find additional information about this respiratory disease attached.

We know this time has been difficult and we thank you for the wonderful job you have done in helping to keep everyone on campus safe, while abiding by the Governor’s Orders. We appreciate the difficulty of not seeing your family, friends, and loved ones and share in your excitement of being able to reunite, even in a limited manner. We ask that you continue to work with us as we diligently keep your health our priority.

Thank you!

What we know about COVID-19

COVID-19, or coronavirus disease 2019, is a respiratory disease. Symptoms, which generally appear 2-to-14 days after exposure, include cough or shortness of breath/difficulty breathing. These symptoms range from mild to severe; however, some people with COVID-19 have no symptoms which is why it is so important to wear a mask.

COVID-19 is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact (within about 6-feet) with one another and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object which has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

Older adults may show very different signs and symptoms, such as lethargy, disorientation, and general fatigue. Older adults, people with chronic health conditions, and people with compromised immune systems are more likely to become more severely ill, which is why all recommendations should be followed during visitation with your loved one.

What can I do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19

It is vitally important to adhere to policies and procedures. Wear a face mask or face covering, wash your hands with soap and water for 20-seconds frequently, sanitize your hands with hand-sanitizer when washing them is not an option, and remember to social-distance yourself (6-feet apart) when possible.

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.
