Dear Residents, Families and Friends:

Thank you for your continued support during the Coronavirus pandemic. Your support and cooperation are vital so our staff can focus on caring for our residents. We are providing these regular updates because we believe it is important to be open and transparent while our state deals with COVID-19.

Providing for the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our highest priority.

On Friday, May 15, 2020 we sent one of our residents to the hospital for an issue unrelated to COVID-19. Although the resident was asymptomatic for COVID-19, the hospital tested the resident and found them to be COVID-19 POSITIVE. We were informed of this over the weekend. The resident is currently still in the hospital.

There are no other known cases of COVID-19 outside our secure wing and no residents are currently showing any signs or symptoms of the disease.

We are saddened to share that one of our residents who previously tested COVID-19 POSITIVE—and who was hospitalized several weeks ago, died on Friday, May 15, 2020. We mourn the loss of this resident and express our deepest sympathies to their family and friends.

As previously shared, we continue to care for 13 other residents in our secure wing who have tested COVID-19 POSITIVE. Generally, most of these residents are nearing the time when they would be considered “recovered” from the disease—however, since recovery may take longer in certain individuals and it is still unknown how long a person may be infectious, we will be strictly following the recommendations from the Idaho Department of Health regarding when it is safe to re-integrate these residents into our general population. Their current guidance is that the residents will not be ready for re-integration until several weeks from now.

We continue to be regular contact with the Idaho Department of Health and the South Central Public Health District and we are following all their recommended protocols regarding the treatment, care, and safety of all residents and staff. We would like to thank them for their guidance and support. This information remains unchanged since our last update.

Our staff and essential medical personnel continue to be fully outfitted with personal protective equipment (PPE) as needed for their respective duties and we continue to prohibit visitors. This information remains unchanged since our last update.

Dear Residents, Families and Friends:

Thank you for your continued support during the Coronavirus pandemic. Your support and cooperation is vital so our staff can focus on caring for our residents. We are providing these regular updates because we believe it is important to be open and transparent while our state deals with COVID-19.

Providing for the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our highest priority.

Yesterday we admitted three more residents from the secure wing at Oak Creek Rehabilitation in Kimberly who tested COVID-19 POSITIVE. These three residents were previously residents of our facility and represent the last of our residents that we transferred to Oak Creek. The three residents will join ten other residents in our secure wing where we are treating COVID-19 POSITIVE-ONLY residents.

As previously shared, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)—and approved by the Idaho Department of Health, our strategy continues to be separation of COVID-19 POSITIVE from COVID-19 NEGATIVE residents. Between our facility and our sister facility (Oak Creek Rehabilitation in Kimberly) we have agreed to maintain our secure wing for the care and treatment of COVID-19 POSITIVE-ONLY residents. This information is unchanged since our last updated.

With our use of a separate staff and separate entrance for our secure wing, this strategy is designed to keep the rest or our facility COVID-19 free. It also allows Oak Creek Rehabilitation to remain COVID-19 free and to maintain a secure wing for any COVID-19 NEGATIVE residents who need precautionary quarantine protocols due to having incidental contact with COVID-19 POSITIVE residents. This information is unchanged since our last updated.

We currently have no known cases of COVID-19 among our residents outside our secure wing. This information is unchanged since our last updated.

We had one more staff member test COVID-19 POSITIVE yesterday. We had two more staff members receive their return-to-work clearances today. Those staff members who are COVID-19 POSITIVE are following quarantine protocols in their own homes and we wish them a speedy recovery.

Our staff and essential medical personnel continue to be fully outfitted with personal protective equipment (PPE) as needed for their respective duties and we continue to prohibit visitors. This information remains unchanged since our last update

Dear Residents, Families and Friends:

As our nation, state, and local community copes with the novel coronavirus pandemic, we want to thank you for your continued support and understanding during these challenging times for all of us.

Providing for the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our paramount priority. We are working closely with the Idaho Department of Health and the South Central Public Health District and continue to follow their guidance regarding the treatment, care, and safety of all residents and staff.

As is being reported by national news outlets, the CDC and CMS on Sunday, April 19, announced a new initiative to require greater transparency for the reporting of COVID-19 cases at long-term care facilities. Moving forward, nursing homes will be required to inform residents and their families about any COVID-19 cases in their facilities.

We welcome this new initiative because it mirrors our own voluntary commitment to keep our residents, families, staff and the public fully informed about any COVID-19 cases at our facility, along with our efforts to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

As previously shared, we have dedicated one wing of our facility to care for and treat COVID-19 POSITIVE residents. The wing is secure, has a separate entrance, and a separate staff.

As previously shared, we have five residents who have tested COVID-19 POSITIVE residing in the secure wing in our facility.

As previously shared in our April 17, 2020 update and other updates, we tested all 14 residents residing in the wing where our first COVID-19 POSITIVE resident was residing. As those test results came in, we immediately transferred any COVID-19 NEGATIVE residents who were residing in that wing to Oak Creek Care Center in Kimberly. Any COVID-19 POSITIVE residents from that wing continued to be housed in that wing which was secured with a separate entrance and staff.

In total, we transferred 10 COVID-19 NEGATIVE residents to Oak Creek Rehabilitation where they were immediately housed in a secure wing and began 14-day quarantine protocols.

Today, one of those ten residents who had tested NEGATIVE in our facility, tested POSITIVE at Oak Creek Rehabilitation. Oak Creek immediately transferred that resident back to our facility to be housed in our secure wing.

Our goal is to house COVID-19 POSTIVE residents in our secure wing and keep Oak Creek Care Center’s secure wing free of COVID-19. This approach follows the guidance from the CDC and CMS, and is being done under the approval of the Idaho Department of Health.

In total, there are currently five residents who have tested COVID-19 POSITIVE residing in the secure wing in our facility.

All residents are being monitored closely and we are following all recommendations from the above-mentioned agencies.

We are working closely with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and the South Central Public Health District and are following all their recommended protocols regarding the treatment, care, and safety of all residents and staff.

As previously shared, we have a wing in our facility where a resident tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, April 15. In response, we immediately notified all resident families, residents, and staff. We then sealed off the wing from the rest of the facility and designated a separate team of staff and a separate entrance. Also, all 14 residents who reside on that wing were tested for COVID-19.

We are now receiving those test results and we currently have three more residents who have tested positive for COVID-19—making a total of four residents who have tested positive. Three residents have also tested negative.

For the safety of the residents who have or will test NEGATIVE, we have decided to transfer the COVID-19 NEGATIVE residents to, Oak Creek Rehabilitation in Kimberly, where there are no cases of COVID-19. This decision was made with the guidance and approval of the Idaho Health Department and the South Central Public Health District.

When the COVID-19 NEGATIVE residents arrive at Oak Creek Rehabilitation they will be housed in a secure wing where they will follow a 14-day quarantine period as a precaution. If any more cases of COVID-19 occur in our facility, we will house and treat those patients in our sealed wing, here at Desert View Care Center.

All residents are being monitored closely and we are following all recommendations from the above-mentioned agencies.

We have also received positive test results for three more staff members—making it a total of five staff members who are COVID-19 POSITIVE. Those staff members are following quarantine protocols in their own home and we wish them a speedy recovery

In response, yesterday, April 15, 2020, we made phone calls to the designated contact person for each resident in our facility, and to each staff member, to inform them of the COVID-19 POSITIVE test result referenced above. We also informed all residents of our facility. If you did not receive a phone call you may need to update your contact information. To do so, please email our facility at dvccinfo@brphealth.com.

We have two staff members who have tested COVID-19 POSITIVE and are following quarantine protocols in their homes. We wish them a full and speedy recovery.

We are working closely with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and the South Central Public Health District and are following all their recommended protocols regarding the treatment, care, and safety of all residents and staff.

As previously shared, the resident who has tested positive and the resident who showed signs and symptoms are both in private rooms with all infection protocols in place. The resident who showed signs and symptoms was also tested for COVID-19 and we will report those results when we receive them. All residents are being monitored closely and we are following all recommendations from the above-mentioned agencies.

Also, 12 other residents who were staying in rooms on the wing where the resident tested positive, were tested today and we will provide those results when we receive them. The wing (with a total of 14 residents) has been sealed off from the rest of the facility and will have its own dedicated staff and entrance.

Regarding our staff and essential medical personnel, they are fully outfitted with personal protective equipment (PPE) as needed for their respective duties and we continue to prohibit visitors.

Our facility is still on restricted access, which means that only essential staff who pass a daily medical screening are allowed in the facility. According to Federal guidelines, we continue to prohibit visitors.

We will continue to update you on this website, dvcc.brpmanagement.com, when we have new information to share, and we encourage you to contact us via email with any questions or concerns regarding your loved ones. Again, our email address is dvccinfo@brphealth.com.

Thank you for your continued support.

Like a hospital, our healthcare professionals routinely deal with infectious diseases. They received such training through their formal education as well as ongoing training on the job. Infectious disease control is part of their everyday work experience.

Unique to COVID 19, The Federal Government, State Government, and Medicare have required additional policies and procedures which we have implemented immediately.

We continue to get up-to-the-minute guidance from these agencies and will implement new requirements as we receive them.

As of Friday, March 13, 2020, all facilities like ours, across the nation, are required to be on restricted access—which means that only essential personnel are permitted in the buildings. In most cases, visitors are not allowed.

To contact your loved one, please call their cell phone, or email or text them. To speak to a facility representative send an email to: dvccinfo@brphealth.com

We ask for your patience as we implement the new requirements and we assure you we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of residents, patients and staff.
