*** NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 ***
July 7, 2020 updated
We received notification that one of our employees tested positive for COVID-19 today; that employee last worked today. We also received notification that one of our residents tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday at the hospital. If your loved one tests positive for COVID-19, someone from our facility will contact you personally.
In May, Gov. Greg Abbott ordered that 100 percent of nursing home residents and staff be tested for COVID-19. COVID-19 testing occurred May 27. One employee, who initially tested positive for COVID-19, has since tested negative twice and successfully met the protocol for being deemed recovered.
Our facility is under complete quarantine with only essential medical personnel permitted inside. We continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control, Local Health Department, and Texas Health and Human Services guidance in medically assessing and examining employees at the beginning and end of each shift. We are diligently monitoring and assessing residents and employees, following the disinfecting and housekeeping protocols, adhering to social distancing guidelines, and numerous other preventative measures. Residents have been assigned representatives to aid with communication to family members via Smartphones, tablets, and computers to help minimize feelings of social isolation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends who have lost loved ones due to COVID-19. As our nation and the world experience the impact made by the COVID-19 pandemic, rest assured we have implemented the best available precautions and have the appropriate supplies needed to care for your loved one. If you have questions or comments, please contact Director of Nursing Angela Washington Jackson at AWashington@paramounthc.com or Administrator Clint Slayton at CSlayton@paramounthc.com. Please check back to our web site for further updates.
