Covid Status

11.22.21

As of November 22nd, we do not have any new positive COVID-19 cases in our community. We are happy to announce that one of our residents who tested positive on November 6th has recovered and transitioned off of the COVID unit. The two employees who tested positive last week continue to recover. Our medical director and clinical team will continue to monitor residents and employees daily.

At Countryside Health Care Center, we want to assure you that we are adhering to rigorous infection control practices throughout our facility. We will start conducting twice-weekly facility-wide testing per the Iowa Dept. of Health guidance and CMS.  Regular testing is an effective method of slowing the virus’s spread, so we look forward to continuing this practice until the virus is no longer prevalent.

We continue to stay in touch with the County Health Department to ensure we are following the most up-to-date policies and procedures to defend against the spread of the virus. We are also collaborating with our medical director daily.

With the updated guidance we received from CMS (The Center for Medicare Services) on 11/12/21, we are thrilled to say in-person visitation is OPEN regardless of COVID outbreak status in a skilled nursing setting. We will require face masks during these in-person visits to keep our employees and residents safe. We kindly ask that visitors respect all facility protocols when visiting. It is our desire to communicate with the community regularly and in real-time as we continue to live out our mission of care, compassion, and quality of life for all residents. Please call 712.276.3000 to schedule a visit if needed for virtual visits or message us at the link below.

As a reminder, the following defensive measures are in place at our facility: 

  • Closely monitoring and screening all residents and team members for symptoms on a daily and shift-by-shift basis. This includes temperature checks and other CDC-recommended screenings. 
  • Enforcing social distancing. 
  • Practicing frequent hand hygiene in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  • Frequent disinfecting of high-touch surfaces to decrease environmental contamination.
  • Taking higher-than-required protective equipment precautions, such as wearing N95 masks, gloves and gowns as situations warrant their use. 

Thank you for your kindness and understanding through this time. 

Be well,

7/27/21
 
In light of the recent article, we’ve provided this statement and wanted to share it here for our families and residents.
 
Our company officially took ownership of the property on July 1, 2021, and since that time we have made several changes to improve standards at Countryside Health Care Center. Those changes include a new administrator and director of nursing with significant experience. The facility is also now supported by different regional oversight, which includes quality reviews by regional nursing staff.
The complaints cited in this article are prior to our change of ownership and under an unaffiliated operator.
 
We have implemented a 1-800 line for any patient or family member with concerns to report issues that will go straight to our leadership and will be followed up on by the Chief Nursing Officer, Regional Vice President or Chief Operating Officer. That number is 1-833-961-3634. We’re confident that all past deficiencies cited, were corrected and the facility is now within compliance.
 
We will continue to implement changes and review quality of care to ensure we’re properly serving our patients as their health and safety is our top priority.

2/19/21 Update

We are exciting to announce we remain without any new active cases of COVID-19 for our residents or staff members. As of Monday, February 22nd, we will restart communal dining and group activities and indoor visits. Indoor visits are now available to be schedule as well. Please call, Crystal, Monday- Friday during normal business hours to schedule an appointment, 712-522-0919.

Last, our world has changed, but our mission has not. Providing exceptional outcomes for short -term skilled residents and long- term care in a home away from home atmosphere with kind, caring, proactive, and dedicated staff members is what we strive for. We have received our COVID-19 vaccinations and we feel confident in the safety and security of our environment.  

Thank you again for the continued support.

1/8/21 Update

We want to express our continued gratitude to everyone for your continued support and patience as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our residents and staff.

This week, we have finished the first round of the COVID-19 vaccine administration. 80 residents were vaccinated and 46 associates. It was a very seamless process. A big thank you to CVS and our associates in charge of the process today. They did an amazing job with no issues. Now our nursing department will take the lead to chart and do the vitals along with support of our medical director, nurse practitioners and other rounding physicians. We are scheduled for our second dose on January 27th.

As we start the vaccine process, this is a friendly reminder it is a two- step vaccine. We want to remind everyone that the facility will not immediately re-open after the second dose.  We do need about 21 days after the second dose to allow for the vaccine to reach its full potential. We will keep the lines of communication open as we follow the guidelines in retuning the facility to normal operations.

We continue to test the associates in accordance with the CMS guidelines based on the positivity rate in our county. 

We truly want to thank everyone.  We recognize the impact and sacrifice given by all and the adjustments made in your own lives. We are optimistic as we move forward in 2021.
