In Accordance with the recommendation of the Ohio Department of Health and to ensure the safety of our residents, The Anderson will continue to admit any individuals that we would normally admit to our facility, including individuals from hospitals where a case of COVID-19 was/is present.
We have dedicated a unit exclusively for any residents coming or returning from the hospital. This unit will have dedicated staff working it that will not have access to the rest of the facility during this time.
This will serve as a step-down unit where they remain for at least 14 days with no symptoms (instead of integrating as usual on short-term rehab floor, or returning to long-stay original room). The attending doctor will determine when they are safe to integrate.
Please rest assured that The Anderson will continue to do what is necessary to keep all residents of the facility safe.
More information on designated COVID-19 unit can be found here.
