Dear Family Members,
As you are already aware, we are moving forward with welcoming you to visit your loved ones at our facility. We are COVID-19-free facility, and we want to assure you that we will continue to conduct the visitations following the NJ Department of Health guidelines and the utmost care will always be taken to follow all safety procedures.
In order for us to accommodate all families to visit their loved ones through our website’s visitation booking, we would like to request to limit your visitation appointment bookings three times a week to ensure all residents are able to receive visitors and accommodated safely.
Your understanding and cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
Probably not yet, as many facilities may be scheduling visits in advance in accordance with federal and state guidance. Both the federal and state guidance state that long-term care facilities should “consider the number of visitors per resident at one time and the total number of visitors in the building at any time.” As such, the guidance states that the “Facilities should consider scheduling visits for a specific length of time to ensure all residents are able to receive visitors.” Your facility should have a plan for how they are going to accommodate social indoor visits. You should contact your facility and request a social indoor visit with your loved one as soon as possible. The facility is not required to schedule these visits, but that is how most facilities are handling them. Why do I have to schedule a visit? You may not have to. This is not required in the federal guidance or NJ DOH Visitation Memo. However, the Memo gives that discretion to the long-term care facility in order to ensure that all requests for visitation can be accommodated safely.
