June 20, 2022

Please allow this notification communication to serve as our weekly update. At this current time, there has been no change from our last communication. There has been no new cases of COVID-19-positive residents or employees other than what was reported throughout the week.

The facility is continuing to implement all the necessary safety precautions that are consistent with the CDC guidelines as well as those of the recommendations of Public Health. As always, our priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of residents and employees while keeping the lines of communication open with you and your family.

Valley Palms Care Center will be conducting weekly testing for residents and twice weekly testing staff due to the increase in cases in Los Angeles County.

Response measures for a high level of concern in SNFs:
• Test all symptomatic staff and residents.
• Conduct contact tracing and assure proper isolation of cases and quarantining of close contacts based on the county HOO.
• Implement universal masking of all staff and residents. Require N95 respirators for all staff during the entire time while in the facility.
• Reinstate the requirement to conduct twice weekly screening testing of all staff and weekly testing of residents, regardless of vaccination status.
• Require all visitors be tested (PCR or Antigen) within 48 hours prior to indoor visitation.
• Pause communal dining and group activities..

Our goal is to keep all lines of communication open during this difficult time while ensuring the safety of your loved ones and our employees.

DUE TO RAPIDLY INCREASING CASES AND HOSPITALIZATIONS THAT ARE IMPACTING SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES, PUBLIC HEALTH IS ENACTING FURTHER MEASURES TO PROTECT THE RESIDENTS AND STAFF IN THIS SETTING. SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES ARE NOW REQUIRED TO VERIFY A NEGATIVE SARS-CoV-2 TEST WITHING 48 HOURS FOR A PCR TEST OR WITHIN 24 HOURS FOR AN ANTIGEN TEST FOR INDOOR/OUTDOOR VISITS FOR ALL VISITORS REGARDLESS OF THEIR VACCINATION AND BOOSTER STATUS, INCLUDING CHILDREN TWO YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. CHILDREN FIVE YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF ALL RECOMMENDED COVID VACCINE DOSES. Nothing has changed for visitations.

The purpose of these visitation guidelines is to help each facility develop a resident-centered visitation policy that balances the need to protect staff and residents from COVID-19 transmission with the need to provide timely care that optimizes residents’ physical and psychological health in alignment with state and federal requirements.
publichealth.lacounty.gov

In addition, the following apply to all visitors, of SNFs in Los Angeles County:
– In a visitor log, visitors should document their name, contact information, and locations within the facility premises they are visiting in order to assist with contact tracing if needed.
– All visitors should be instructed to notify the facility if they develop COVID-19 signs and symptoms and/or have a positive test within 14 days of visiting the facility. Facilities should take all necessary actions including infection control precautions based on findings.

The facility will be conducting visitations through different means based on the facility’s structure. All visitors and residents should wear appropriate facial covering during their visit and should maintain 6-ft physical distancing. The visitor visiting the facility must adhere to the following: Be screened for fever and COVID-19 symptoms, wear appropriate facial covering, and perform hand hygiene when in the facility.

All general visitors must demonstrate proof of one of the following prior to visitations regardless of the visitor’s vaccination status, the resident’s vaccination status, or the facility’s outbreak status:
– A negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 48 hours prior to entry; OR
– A negative FDA-approved point-of-care COVID-19 antigen test result taken within 24 hours prior to entry; OR
– Recovery from a previous COVID-19 infection ≤90 days (i.e. their positive COVID-19 antigen or PCR test result on a sample taken within the last 90 days, but not within the last 10 days, prior to the day of entry).

As transmissible variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus continue to circulate in California, the vast majority of COVID-19 cases are occurring in unvaccinated individuals. Despite the availability of safe and highly effective COVID-19vaccination, many individuals remain unvaccinated and are at high risk of acquiring COVID-19 and exposing SNF residents and health care personnel. In an ongoing effort to ensure resident safety, and to minimize the spread of COVID-19 among vulnerable individuals, CDPH is requiring SNFs to develop and implement processes for verifying
the vaccination status of all visitors seeking indoor visitation, and for obtaining and tracking documentation of SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic test of all unvaccinated visitors. SNFs must verify visitors are fully vaccinated or have provided evidence of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test within one day of visitation for antigen tests, and within two days of visitation for PCR tests for indoor visitation. Visitors that are unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated or are unable to show a negative SARS-CoV-2 test may only have an outdoor visit.
The facility will continue outdoor visitations and window visits. Outdoor visits pose a lower risk of transmission due to increased space and airflow; therefore, outdoor visitation, window visits, and electronic communications (such as FaceTime and Zoom) are preferred.

In the facility’s policy for visitations under infection control:
– The Administrator, in conjunction with the Medical Director and Infection Preventionist, has the authority to restrict or ban facility visitation during outbreaks, whether these originate in the facility or in the community.

– Visitors who are symptomatic of communicable diseases may be denied visitation at the discretion of the Charge Nurse until appropriate evaluation and treatment of the visitor has been established.
– Visitors must follow instructions from the Charge Nurse on duty regarding facility infection control practices and visitation restrictions. – The facility does not have an age restriction policy. However, visitors under the age of twelve (12) must be strictly supervised. The FACILITY has the right to restrict or ban visitors as indicated.

Thank you for your time. Have a safe and wonderful day.

Warm Regards,

– A negative FDA-approved point-of-care COVID-19 antigen test result taken within 24 hours prior to entry; OR
– Recovery from a previous COVID-19 infection ≤90 days (i.e. their positive COVID-19 antigen or PCR test result on a sample taken within the last 90 days, but not within the last 10 days, prior to the day of entry).

As transmissible variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus continue to circulate in California, the vast majority of COVID-19 cases are occurring in unvaccinated individuals. Despite the availability of safe and highly effective COVID-19vaccination, many individuals remain unvaccinated and are at high risk of acquiring COVID-19 and exposing SNF residents and health care personnel. In an ongoing effort to ensure resident safety, and to minimize the spread ofCOVID-19 among vulnerable individuals, CDPH is requiring SNFs to develop and implement processes for verifying
the vaccination status of all visitors seeking indoor visitation, and for obtaining and tracking documentation of SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic test of all unvaccinated visitors. In compliance with the Public Health Order
issued February 7, 2022, beginning February 8, 2022, SNFs must verify visitors are fully vaccinated
or
have provided evidence of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test within one day of visitation for antigen tests, and within two days of visitation for PCR tests for indoor visitation. Visitors that are unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated or are unable to show a negative SARS-CoV-2 test may only have an outdoor visit.

The facility will continue outdoor visitations and window visits. Outdoor visits pose a lower risk of transmission due to increased space and airflow; therefore, outdoor visitation, window visits, and electronic communications (such as FaceTime and Zoom) are preferred.

In the facility’s policy for visitations under infection control:

– The Administrator, in conjunction with the Medical Director and Infection Preventionist, has the authority to restrict or ban facility visitation during outbreaks, whether these originate in the facility or in the community.
– Visitors who are symptomatic of communicable diseases may be denied visitation at the discretion of the Charge Nurse until appropriate evaluation and treatment of the visitor has been established.
– Visitors must follow instructions from the Charge Nurse on duty regarding facility infection control practices and visitation restrictions. – The facility does not have an age restriction policy. However, visitors under the age of twelve (12) must be strictly supervised. The FACILITY has the right to restrict or ban visitors as indicated.

In addition, the following apply to all visitors, of SNFs in Los Angeles County:
– In a visitor log, visitors should document their name, contact information, and locations within the facility premises they are visiting in order to assist with contact tracing if needed.
– All visitors should be instructed to notify the facility if they develop COVID-19 signs and symptoms and/or have a positive test within 14 days of visiting the facility. Facilities should take all necessary actions including infection control precautions based on findings.

The facility will be conducting visitations through different means based on the facility’s structure. All visitors and residents should wear appropriate facial covering during their visit and should maintain 6-ft physical distancing. The visitor visiting the facility must adhere to the following: Be screened for fever and COVID-19 symptoms, wear appropriate facial covering, and perform hand hygiene when in the facility.

All general visitors must demonstrate proof of one of the following prior to visitations regardless of the visitor’s vaccination status, the resident’s vaccination status, or the facility’s outbreak status as per the revised “Order of the Health Officer for Control of COVID-19: Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission in Skilled Nursing Facilities” issued January 5, 2022:
– A negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 48 hours prior to entry; OR
– A negative FDA-approved point-of-care COVID-19 antigen test result taken within 24 hours prior to entry; OR
– Recovery from a previous COVID-19 infection ≤90 days (i.e. their positive COVID-19 antigen or PCR test result on a sample taken within the last 90 days, but not within the last 10 days, prior to the day of entry).

As transmissible variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus continue to circulate in California, the vast majority of COVID-19 cases are occurring in unvaccinated individuals. Despite the availability of safe and highly effective COVID-19vaccination, many individuals remain unvaccinated and are at high risk of acquiring COVID-19 and exposing SNF residents and health care personnel. In an ongoing effort to ensure resident safety, and to minimize the spread ofCOVID-19 among vulnerable individuals, CDPH is requiring SNFs to develop and implement processes for verifying
the vaccination status of all visitors seeking indoor visitation, and for obtaining and tracking documentation ofSARS-CoV-2 diagnostic test of all unvaccinated visitors. In compliance with the Public Health Order
issued February7, 2022, beginning February 8, 2022, SNFs must verify visitors are fully vaccinated
or
have provided evidence of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test within one day of visitation for antigen tests, and within two days of visitation for PCR tests for indoor visitation. Visitors that are unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated or are unable to show a negative SARS-CoV-2 test may only have an outdoor visit.

The facility will continue outdoor visitations and window visits. Outdoor visits pose a lower risk of transmission due to increased space and airflow; therefore, outdoor visitation, window visits, and electronic communications (such as FaceTime and Zoom) are preferred.

In the facility’s policy for visitations under infection control:

– The Administrator, in conjunction with the Medical Director and Infection Preventionist, has the authority to restrict or ban facility visitation during outbreaks, whether these originate in the facility or in the community.
– Visitors who are symptomatic of communicable diseases may be denied visitation at the discretion of the Charge Nurse until appropriate evaluation and treatment of the visitor has been established.
– Visitors must follow instructions from the Charge Nurse on duty regarding facility infection control practices and visitation restrictions. – The facility does not have an age restriction policy. However, visitors under the age of twelve (12) must be strictly supervised. The FACILITY has the right to restrict or ban visitors as indicated.

“Please allow this notification communication to serve as our weekly update. At this current time, there has been no change from our last communication. There has been no new cases of COVID-19 positive residents or employees other than what was reported throughout the week.

The facility is continuing to implement all the necessary safety precautions that are consistent with the CDC guidelines as well as those of the recommendations of Public Health. As always, our priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of residents and employees while keeping the lines of communication open with you and your family.

Valley Palms Care Center will continue to test weekly residents and employees who are not vaccinated and who are partially vaccinated per CDPH guidelines and recommendations from Public Health. After September 30, 2021, all healthcare workers are required to be vaccinated unless they have an approved accommodation request letter.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has provided the Moderna vaccines for the residents and employees. The facility’s pharmacy vendor will be providing Pfizer, Moderna, and Jansen vaccines to residents and employees.

The facility will be conducting visitations through different means based on the facility’s structure. Indoor visitations will be allowed for green and yellow zone residents. All visitors and residents should wear appropriate facial covering during their visit and should maintain 6-ft physical distancing. The visitor entering the facility must adhere to the following: Be screened for fever and COVID-19 symptoms, wear appropriate facial covering, and perform hand hygiene when in the facility. Only fully vaccinated visitors of fully vaccinated residents may have brief, limited physical contact with the resident. Visitors who are unable to comply with core principles of COVID-19 will not be permitted to visit. The facility will continue outdoor visitations and window visits. Outdoor visits pose a lower risk of transmission due to increased space and airflow; therefore, outdoor visitation, window visits, and electronic communications (such as FaceTime and Zoom) are preferred.

On November 4, 2021, CMS issued a regulation requiring that all nursing home staff be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a requirement. However, at this time, continued restrictions on this vital resident’s right are no longer necessary.
Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine, should not enter the facility. Facilities should screen all who enter for these visitation exclusions.
Although there is no limit on the number of visitors that a resident can have at one time, visits should be conducted in a manner that adheres to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention and does not increase risk to other residents. Facilities should ensure that physical distancing can still be maintained during peak times of visitation. Also, facilities should avoid large gatherings where large numbers of visitors are in the same space at the same time and physical distancing cannot be maintained. During indoor visitation, facilities should limit visitor movement in the facility. For example, visitors should not walk around different halls of the facility. Rather, they should go directly to the resident’s room or designated visitation area.
If a resident’s roommate is unvaccinated or immunocompromised, regardless of vaccination status, visits should not be conducted in the resident’s room, if possible.
If the nursing home’s county COVID-19 community level of transmission is substantial to high, all residents and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, should wear face coverings or masks and physically distance, at all times. In areas of low to moderate transmission, the safest practice is for residents and visitors to wear face coverings or masks and physically distance, particularly if either of them is at increased risk for severe disease or are unvaccinated. If the resident and all their visitors are fully vaccinated and the resident is not moderately or severely immunocompromised, they may choose not to wear face coverings or masks and to have physical contact. Visitors should wear face coverings or masks when around other residents or healthcare personnel, regardless of vaccination status.
CMS strongly encourages all visitors to become vaccinated and facilities should educate and also encourage visitors to become vaccinated.
