Covid-19 Information

December 2, 2022

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid Update:  With the recent COVID outbreak, Hamilton County being in "High/red" community COVID transmission status, and increased cases of influenza among staff and residents, Beechwood has decided to cancel any plans we had in the works for a Christmas Dinner for families. Beechwood will not be renting out rooms for family gatherings, due to the increase of infection spread with large gatherings. Please know that we will be providing our residents with a wonderful Christmas Dinner, and are decorating the facility in hopes of making this Christmas season as festive as possible, while maintaining the highest level of safety. We welcome families to continue to come in and visit with residents, however, we do strongly recommend the use of masks while in the facility, and strongly encourage meeting in resident's rooms to avoid germ spread.   

Giving Tree:   We are happy to announce that our annual Resident Giving Tree selections will be virtual this year. Please visit https://signup.com/go/gAmhpDa to pull a tag.  Please return the $25 max gift-wrapped item clearly displaying the gift # to the Garden Level Receptionist by December 15th.  For those who chose to participate, thanks for your willingness to bring our amazing residents joy during this holiday season.   If you have any questions, contact Rob Chapman at rchapman@beechwoodhome.com or call 513-321-9294 and ask for Rob or Darren.

Voice Activated Devices: We recommend that family/friends contact Sarah @ sapfeld-inman@beechwoodhome.com or 513-321-9294 to inquire if the therapy team feels that your loved one can successfully use a voice activated device before purchasing this holiday season.

Life Safety: As the holiday season is upon us, we would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our residents and staff of a few safety items. These are very important for our overall safety and that of your neighbors.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Charlie at 513 760 4986 

Please contact Heather Hefren (Director of Social Services), Nichole Bond (Administrator) or Patricia Clark (CEO) with questions/comments/concerns.

Good Afternoon Everyone, 

RED= Hamilton County: Per public health regulations, all visitors are strongly recommended to wear a surgical mask during the duration of their visit to the facility while Hamilton County's community transmission categorization is red.  Signs are posted at the entrance as a reminder. 

Tripledemic:  Heading into the third covid winter is being complicated by flu and RSV infections at unprecedented levels currently.  The Emergency Preparedness Committee recommends visitors only spend time in their loved one's room until further notice to reduce the possible spread of respiratory illnesses as much as possible to those who reside here. 

Request: If you are experiencing signs/symptoms of a respiratory illness or have been in close contact with someone who is currently sick, we ask that you refrain from visiting the facility.  While we are no longer mandated to symptom check visitors, it is in the best interest of everyone who lives here to minimize exposure as much as possible. 

Please contact Heather Hefren (Director of Social Services), Nichole Bond (Administrator) or Patricia Clark (CEO) with questions/comments/concerns. 

Sincerely,

Nichole Bond (Administrator) & Patricia Clark, DM (CEO, Administrator)

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

MyCare Ohio Open Enrollment:   For those with Ohio Medicaid and enrolled in the MyCare Ohio program, open enrollment occurs during the month of November with changes going into effect 1/1/2023.  Please let Heather know if you would like any changes made to your insurance arrangement and she will identify who is earmarked with HCJFS to initiate the change.  You may be contacted by Social Services to discuss an insurance change if a department at the facility feels a different insurance arrangement would be in the best interest of your loved one.

Best Wishes to Scot: Scot Harmon has been our administrator for the last five years and has tirelessly led our facility through some of the most challenging and quite frankly unimaginable times for those working and residing in long term care with phenomenal success.  Friday (9/30/22) will be Scot's last day as he embarks on a new career adventure.  Patricia Clark (our CEO) will be standing in as our Administrator until Scot's replacement has been oriented to our facility.

September 1, 2022 - 360 Care

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Calls from 360 Care:  It has come to our attention that Residents and/or their Responsible Parties are receiving calls from 360 Care selling additional medical insurance products for a monthly premium.  360 Care has been providing these services to Beechwood Home residents. Please be aware that The Beechwood Home has NOT agreed to partner with the 360 Care Resident Insurance premium program and we are NOT involved with its development.  

This initially came to our attention in April 2022 when letters were initially mailed out.  While it is being advertised as free, you will be billed up to $290.00/month for coverage Medicaid already provides.   We will be contacting 360 Care again indicating that they are not authorized to use our name in any of their marketing materials or to mislead people into thinking that The Beechwood Home has an active contract with them for these additional insurance products.   We apologize for any confusion this has caused.  Please contact Heather @ Hhefren@beechwoodhome.com with questions. 

As always, if you have any questions/comments/concerns, please contact me, Scot Harmon (Administrator), or Patricia Clark (CEO).

Dear Residents/Family/Friends/Staff, 

Summary of Changes Since Last Notice: We are reporting one (1) staff member with confirmed Covid-19.   This brings our total active cases to two (2). The facility has had a cumulative total of one hundred and five (105) Staff and twenty-two (22) Resident Covid-19 cases associated with the facility to date. The staff member has been placed on medical leave and removed from the schedule upon notification to minimize exposure risk to other Residents/Staff and will remain on medical leave until they meet the mandated criteria to return to work.   

Action Plan: Our action plan will mirror revised state and local guidance. Zero (0) Residents were identified as close contacts therefore there will be no outbreak testing for Residents. Unvaccinated/not up-to-date staff are required to be tested weekly and we continue voluntary surveillance monitoring of up-to-date vaccinated staff weekly. Any subsequent positive test results will be communicated.

If you have any questions, please contact Scot Harmon, Administrator, at 513-842-0774, sharmon@beechwoodhome.com

Sincerely, 

Scot Harmon (Administrator) & Patricia Clark, DM (CEO, Administrator)
