Covid-19 Information

January 15, 2021 (Current)

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid-19 Status: We have had no known positive Resident cases of COVID-19.

Vaccine Clinic:  Our first vaccine clinic went smoothly on Tuesday and it was a relief to many to receive the 1st vaccine in a series of two against Covid-19. We learned:

       Dr. Clark gives a thumbs up!

Vaccinated Individuals Must Continue to Adhere to All Covid-19 Precautions:  It is critically important that those who have been vaccinated continue to take all infection control measures.  The Emergency Use Authorization was only reviewed and approved to prevent severe illness.  Until herd immunity is reached, vaccinated individuals may still be able to spread the virus and cause severe illness to those who have not been vaccinated.  As time passes, more information will be analyzed, and it may be found that the vaccines can prevent the spread however it is not safe to assume this will be the case currently.      

Indoor Visitation Suspended: Hamilton County’s positivity rate has rose to 19.0%. This is a 2.6% increase since last week’s update and the county moved to 'purple'.  We can resume this program when percentage falls below 10%.

Help Keep Us Covid-19 Free:  If you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 or an upper respiratory infection, please stay away from the facility.

Outside Food Delivery Opportunity on Wednesdays: Please email Scot (sharmon@beechwoodhome.com) and Megan (mrandolph@beechwoodhome.com) by 3:00 PM on Tuesday with the Resident name, restaurant or delivery app name, and estimated delivery time.  We will not accept any deliveries in the front of the building.

As always, if you have any questions please contact  Scot Harmon sharmon@beechwoodhome.com (Administrator) and/or Patricia Clark pclark@beechwoodhome.com (CEO) and/or Heather Hefren hhefren@beechwoodhome.com (Director of Social Services).

January 15, 2021 Special Update

Dear Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Summary of Changes Since Last Notice:

We are reporting one (1) additional staff member who has tested positive. This brings our total active cases to three (3). The facility has had cumulative total of twenty-one (21) confirmed Covid-19 tests 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 a physician certifies they are safe to return to work. 

Action Plan.

Our action plan will remained unchanged due to the fact that the staff member does not work on the Resident floors and had no contact with any resident since the initiation of our current action plan on 1/13/2021. The staff will continue to be tested twice a week until Hamilton County’s positivity rate falls below 10%. The Nursing Department will communicate with any identified residents and their responsible parties. Any subsequent positive test results will be communicated.

Contact us with questions.

We know that this pandemic is particularly challenging for you. We empathize with your feelings of separation and vulnerability, and we want to thank you for your ongoing support and trust. If you have any questions about COVID-19 or the steps that we are taking to protect our residents, please contact Scot Harmon, Administrator, at 513-842-0774, sharmon@beechwoodhome.com.

Dear Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid-19 Status: We have had no known positive cases of COVID-19 within our resident population. 

Covid-19 Vaccination:

Holiday Cheer:  The facility is beautifully decorated with holiday spirit.  The airwaves are filled with trivia contests and gift giveaways.  Residents have enjoyed decadent crockpot hot chocolate and a mobile Christmas party will be occurring today as we deliver all the Giving Tree gifts along with sweet treats.   Thank you to everyone who donated a gift and helped this tradition continue. Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season during this unprecedented year.   

Gift Opening/Clothing Labeling: Administrative staff will be available to assist Residents open gifts they have received.  Friendly reminder that if the facility performs your personal laundry and you receive clothing items during the holidays, please give these items to Activities or Social Services to ensure that they can be labeled before you wear them. 

Indoor Visitation Suspended: Hamilton County’s positivity rate has dropped to 16.8%. This is a .5% decrease since last week’s update and the county remains ‘Red’.  We can resume this program when percentage falls below 10%.

Outside Food Delivery Opportunity on Wednesdays:  If a Resident or family/friend places an order, please email Scot (sharmon@beechwoodhome.com) and Megan (mrandolph@beechwoodhome.com) by 3:00 PM on Tuesday with the Resident name, restaurant or delivery app name, and estimated delivery time so we can anticipate the orders arriving and ensure staff are available to collect/deliver in a timely manner.

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid-19 Status: We have had no known positive cases of COVID-19 within our resident population. 

Benefit of Vaccination: 

Some Residents may be wondering what the benefit of vaccination is if life here at Beechwood will not drastically change overnight.  While we hope it never occurs, in the event an outbreak within the facility does happen, those who had received the vaccine would be better protected against the exposure and as a result less likely to develop symptoms. 

Covid-19 Vaccination:

We are waiting to be contacted by CVS to schedule a date for administration of a Covid-19 vaccine.  Once this has been scheduled, we will distribute a special update to everyone with this information.

Prior to administration date, consent forms and information sheets regarding the vaccine will be made available on our website to review.  Nursing will assist Residents in the completion of the consent form if they voluntarily choose to have the vaccine administered.  POA’s will be contacted directly for those Residents that are unable to complete a consent form.  

In addition to consulting with a Neurologist regarding the safety of the vaccine, please be aware that Dr. Huschart (Medical Director) and Dr. Craig Stiens (Pharmacist) are available to answer any questions you may have about the vaccine. 

Resident Giving Tree:  Friendly reminder that giving tree gifts ideally would be dropped off by today by 4:00 PM.   If this is not possible, it would be greatly appreciated if you could do so ASAP.  Thanks for your willingness to bring our amazing residents joy during this holiday season. Please ensure all items are wrapped with a tag stating the number.

Indoor Visitation Suspended: Hamilton County’s positivity rate has risen to 17.3%. This is a 1.5% increase since last week’s update and the county remains ‘Red’.  We can resume this program when percentage falls below 10%.

Outside Food Delivery Opportunity on Wednesdays:  If a Resident or family/friend places an order, please email Scot (sharmon@beechwoodhome.com) and Megan (mrandolph@beechwoodhome.com) by 3:00 PM on Tuesday with the Resident name, restaurant or delivery app name, and estimated delivery time so we can anticipate the orders arriving and ensure staff are available to collect/deliver in a timely manner.
