As mandated by Governer Lamont on March 13, 2020 and in an effort to "protect the health and welfare of patients, residents and staff" of "nursing home facilities, residential care homes or chronic disease hospitals ... all Connecticut Facilities shall impose a complete ban on all visitors to such Facilities, (except end-of-life care) for a period of THIRTY (30) DAYS commencing on the date of this order unless terminated earlier by virtue of a future order."
Please read/download the official Department of Health order below:
In response to these temporary visitor restrictions, we have prioritized various ways for family and friends to stay in touch with their loved ones (and vice versa) here at Westview. Utilizing technology and free-to-use software our Recreation Department is offering the following methods for family and friends to directly communicate with their loved ones at Westview, including:
Christine can be reached at 860-774-8574, ext. 110.
Please review our temporary new measures regarding items brought into our facility during this time. Thank you for your compliance and understanding during this time.
In order to reduce the risk of exposure, we are no longer accepting deliveries of flowers, gift baskets, or the like.
FOR NEW ADMISSIONS ONLY ...there will be exceptions for essential patient-care items such as clothing, cell phones, approved medications from outside the facility, etc. Patient-care items must be delivered to the Main Lobby for proper cleaning and disenfection prior to distribution.
CDC notes that evidence suggests that the novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials, which includes clothing. Therefore, "Family Will Do Laundry" service has been suspended until further notice. All laundry service for all residents/patients will be done onsite.
The risk of transmission through the mail is very low. Vulnerability mainly exists "if" the delivery person is infected and happens to cough or sneeze on the mail and/or packages. Therefore, we will quarantine all residents'/patients' mail deliveries for up to 24 hours after delivery. Resident Services will promptly deliver the mail afterwards.
Kim can be reached at 860-774-8574, ext. 100.
