COVID-19 Virus management
Full facility testing of employees and residents started in May and continues to be completed on a weekly basis in an effort to identify any COVID-19 positive individuals that do not show symptoms. We have implemented the use of a designated COVID unit for any current positive residents at Mount Olivet Careview, as well as an observation unit for any suspected COVID cases. The COVID unit also allows specialized care and staffing to be available to meet the increased needs during this challenging time.
The next facility wide testing will be Tuesday, July 28.
0 positive case of COVID-19 on the COVID-19 unit at Mount Olivet Careview Home.
0 cases at Mount Olivet Home.
0 residents hospitalized with COVID-19 related challenges at this time.
16 residents have recovered from COVID-19.
13 COVID-19 related deaths since April 1.
Our condolences and our gratitude go out to each of these families that we have grieved with over this time. Our residents are a second family to us and these deaths have been extremely heart breaking to our community.
16 employees have tested positive for COVID-19 since April 1st.
12 employees have recovered.
Mount Olivet Home/Mount Olivet Careview follow standard protocols and procedures to prevent or limit the spread of infectious diseases within our buildings.
All Mount Olivet employees receive annual training on Infection Control policies and procedures and our Nursing Department/Infection Control Nurse continually monitor for the presence of any infectious outbreak.
Our recent state infection control survey conducted by the Minnesota Department of Health
on July 1 showed no areas of concern.
We are aware of the essential caregivers guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health for nursing facilities. We are approaching this guidance with caution to maximize our ability to protect the health of all residents within the facility. Policies and procedures will be worked on, as well as continued monitoring of the COVID trends in the larger community throughout July to measure the best approach.
