Good Samaritan Home has not had any new COVID-19 positive cases in employees or residents since our last notification letter. Neighborhoods throughout the facility remain in different quarantine statuses based on their exposure levels.

Good Samaritan Home is working diligently on expanding our visitation policies and guidelines to follow current CMS and IDPH guidance.  Stay tuned for more updates about these exciting changes.  We will share them with you as soon as they become available.

We will no longer be quarantining items when they are brought in by families.  Residents will be able to have items the day they arrive.  Families will also be able to bring in items when they come for compassionate care and in person visits, however food items may not be enjoyed during the visit because that requires masks to be removed.  Food items may be enjoyed when the visit is over.

We stand by our commitment to the health and safety of our residents and staff. We continue to take precautions, which includes:
 

  • Continued screening of all staff members and other essential persons entering our facility for symptoms related to COVID-19.
  • Continued screening of all residents several times a day with vital signs and temperature checks.
  • Residents quarantined to their neighborhoods.
  • Continued disinfecting of resident rooms, common areas, and high-traffic areas multiple times daily.
  • All staff will continue to wear masks and practice good hand hygiene.
  • Residents may have meals in their assigned neighborhood dining rooms. Only one resident is permitted at each dining room table to allow for social distancing. Married couples that reside on the same unit will be allowed to sit at the same table. 
  • Beauty Shop appointments continue for in-house residents that are not in isolation precautions.  There are no changes to their guidelines. Only one resident per stylist will be permitted. Social distancing will be implemented. Residents and stylist must wear a mask at all times. Residents are not allowed to wait in or outside the beauty shop for their appointment. Proper disinfection/sanitizing will be performed between each appointment.

We will communicate new information with families, residents, staff, and the community as it becomes available to us. For any questions or concerns, please contact your loved one’s designated social service aide.
 
Thank you for your patience, prayers, and understanding during this time.
