Patrick Manor Visitation Policy...

The Facility Visitor Policy and Procedure is designed to promote resident, visitor and employee safety and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Overview

All individuals who enter the building will be screened prior to entry. This includes employees, vendors, third party providers, visitors and essential caregivers.

We do encourage everyone who visits to wear a face mask covering their nose and mouth, and we can provide masks upon request.

As a reminder:

We also ask visitors to respect the following rules:

Screening Process

Before entering we are still currently testing inside visitors for the safety of all. If you Do Not wish to be tested, then outside visitations are always the best option. When visitors enter the building, they will stop at the front entry way to complete their screening process by signing in, completing questionnaire, sanitizing hands and temperature check. If the visitor is questionable of being exposed, we will be happy to provide all appropriate PPE for their use such as a KN-95 mask, gown, shoe coverings and face shield. An N95 mask or any other necessary PPE may be offered upon request.

All visitors must immediately inform the community if they develop COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of their visit so we may take the appropriate precautionary measures to help protect our residents and staff members from potential spread of the virus.

If a visitor violates the community’s policies and procedures as outlined and agreed to in the screening process, the community reserves the right to suspend in-person visitation from that specific visitor.

Essential Caregivers

A resident or their responsible party may designate any one person they choose as an Essential Caregiver as defined by Florida Statute act commonly known as “ No Patient Left Alone Act.”

Special Circumstances

If for whatever reason our community must suspend or limit visitation, in-person Essential Caregiver visitation will still be permitted under the following special circumstances unless the resident objects, as long as the Essential Caregiver complies with our screening requirements:

1. End-of-life situations.
2. If a resident who was living with family before moving into the community is now struggling with the change in environment and lack of in person family support.
3. If a resident is making one or more major medical decisions.
4. If a resident is experiencing emotional distress.
5. If a resident is grieving the loss of a friend or family member who recently died.
6. If a resident needs cueing or encouragement to eat or drink which was previously provided by a family member or caregiver; and
7. If a resident who used to talk and interact with others is now seldom speaking or engaging.

During these special circumstances, visits must be conducted in the resident’s room.

Conclusion

Visitors are an important part of our residents’ lives, enriching their daily routines and helping them enjoy our home-like atmosphere. If for any reason you have questions about our Visitor Policy, please do not hesitate to contact the Facility Administrator or Management.
