Our Response to COVID-19

November 28, 2020

Attention Care Team Members

Bluegrass Consulting Group centers remain vigilant to living our Mission that creates a magical culture through the hearts of our Care Team Members. Each Bluegrass Consulting Group center prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of all residents, Care Team members and family members within our community. This pandemic has seen unprecedented challenges for the healthcare industry, our nation, and our world. In particular, those challenges presented to Post-Acute Care, with all the changes in regulations, knowledge, and directives, the organization has sought to be in full compliance and a leader in the healthcare industry. The recent federal vaccine mandate is the most recent example of how we are asking our organization to rise to the challenge and lead the way. Through much communication, engagement, and research, we are announcing that all Bluegrass centers will embrace the requirement of the COVID-19 vaccine to keep our residents, Care Team members, and family members safe.

Effective October 1st, 2021 โ€“ all new hires will be required to be vaccinated.

Effective November 1st, 2021 โ€“ all Care Team Members and contracted employees will be required to be vaccinated.

The safety, security, and health of our residents and Care Team members is our number one concern, especially during this pandemic. We are assured that this requirement will provide the best approach to quality care for our communities and those residents we have the privilege to serve. We will continue to monitor updates and governmental direction regarding the mandate and will reserve the right to change this policy, if needed, to comply with all federal mandates. If you have questions or believe you qualify for a Medical or Religious exemption, you are encouraged to speak to your Human Resource Representative or Executive Director. All exemption requests will need to be submitted no later than October 15, 2021.  

We continue to remain in this fight against COVID-19 together and our gratitude for all the support, hard work and commitment that is shown daily is overwhelming. You are what makes the Bluegrass difference.

Sincerely,

Bernard McGuinness, CEO

Bluegrass Consulting Group

Our Response to COVID-19

To Our Residents and Family Members:

We know some of you may be concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) being reported in the media and how it may impact us here at the center.

Our top priority is keeping our residents and Care Team Members safe and we feel these measures are needed to ensure their safety. We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important and there are a variety of other ways you might consider connecting with them. These may include telephone, email, text or through Skype or Facebook. Our Care Team Members are happy to help facilitate these alternative methods.

Our center is following the recommendations of the CDC on prevention steps, including following strict hand-washing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing gowns and gloves when interacting with residents who are sick. We also are staying up-to-date with the CDC recommendations as they are updated. In addition, the center is in close contact with the local and state health department and are following their guidance.

We will notify you if any residents or Care Team Members are diagnosed with COVID-19. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Executive Director.

As part of the โ€œGreenville Defenseโ€ program, we follow a scientific approach using rigorous measures and our industryโ€™s best products. We closely monitor recommendations from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our extensive efforts include:


Weekly COVID-19 Testing: All Care Team Members are tested at a minimum of every week.

Sign-In Kiosks and Temperature Monitoring: We utilize a digital system to screen guests and Care Team Members for symptoms of acute respiratory illness (e.g., fever, cough, difficulty breathing) before entering our community.


Personal Protective Equipment: Care Team Members and residents have access to masks (surgical, N95), gloves, gowns, face shields, and hand sanitizer. Care Team Members are required to wear a mask at all times.


Recycled Air Ionizer: Air Ionizers are installed directly into air ducts, producing positive and negative ions that neutralize harmful pollutants and odors in our buildings.

Plexiglass at Check-in and Nurses Stations: Plexiglass Shields at reception and nurses stations provide a physical barrier to reduce exposure and cross-contamination.


Electrostatic Sprayers: Sprayers provide a uniform and wraparound layer of germ-killing power, providing maximum efficiency disinfecting surfaces.

Deep-Clean Sanitization: Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level.

Daily Communications with Families: Our automated system keeps families and loved ones informed on COVID19 cases.


Thank you Care Team Members for all your hard work!

When to Quarantine

November 27, 2020

Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.

People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department.

When to Quarantine?

People who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19โ€”excluding people who have had COVID-19 within the past 3 months.


People who have tested positive for COVID-19 do not need to quarantine or get tested again for up to 3 months as long as they do not develop symptoms again.

People who develop symptoms again within 3 months of their first bout of COVID-19 may need to be tested again if there is no other cause identified for their symptoms.


What counts as close contact?


โ€ข You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
โ€ข You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
โ€ข You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
โ€ข You shared eating or drinking utensils
โ€ข They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you

How to Properly Wear a Mask

November 13, 2020

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets. Respiratory droplets travel into the air when you cough, sneeze, talk, shout, or sing. These droplets can then land in the mouths or noses of people who are near you or they may breathe these droplets in.

Masks are a simple barrier to help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others. Studies show that masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.

Your mask should:


โœ”๏ธ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
โœ”๏ธ Fit snugly against the sides of the face
โœ”๏ธ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through
โœ”๏ธ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape
๏ปฟ

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a mask. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders.

If these tips don’t help or you have concerns about wearing a mask, talk with your doctor about how to protect yourself and others during the pandemic.

What Your Test Results Mean

November 6, 2020

Whether you test positive or negative for COVID-19, you should take preventive measures toโ€ฏprotect yourself and others.

A viral test checks samples to find out if you are currently infected with COVID-19. The time it takes to process these tests can vary. You can visit your state or local health departmentโ€™s website to look for the latest local information on testing.

โ€ข If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, call your healthcare provider first.
โ€ข If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and are not tested, it is important to stay home. Find out what to do if you are sick
