COVID-19 Preparedness Protocol - Traditions of Dedham

Traditions of Dedham’s Preventative
Health Protocols

 

Please take note of our updated Visitation Policy as part of our
COVID-19 Preparedness Planning:
  
LCB Senior Living Visitation Policy

We are committed to the health and safety of our residents, associates and visitors to our communities. To that end, we are broadening our typical flu season precautions in light of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation.

Among these measures are:

  • Monitoring and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and other health and government agencies.

 

  • Working closely with state health officials to identify and respond to any potential flu cases.

 

  • Engaging an infectious disease physician to review procedures and advise.

 

  • Doubling our sterilization and sanitation efforts, utilizing community personnel and a third-party sanitation expert.

 

  • Instructing associates, visitors, and vendors who are experiencing symptoms to refrain from going to their community until all symptoms are fully cleared up. Further, any associates who have traveled internationally are being asked to observe a self-quarantine period of at least two weeks, depending on the location of their travel, and requiring a physician’s clearance when they do return.

 

  • Reinforcing existing protocols to ensure that community teams are following our infection control and prevention standards, such as frequent hand-washing, cleaning of surfaces, and other recommended hygiene measures.

 

  • Requiring all visitors, vendors, and staff to be screened each time they enter the community.
    • Limiting all non-essential visitors
    • Restricting access to the community to one entrance (with all emergency exits available) and greeting all guests at the front door.

 

  • Reviewing our emergency preparedness procedures, which includes ensuring we have necessary supplies and plans for staffing.

 

  • Postponing all public events within the community until further notice.

 

  • Cancelling resident trips to non-essential destinations.

 

  • Having weekly communications with residents, their families, and healthcare proxies.

“Everything I need is here at the community. The residents and staff are not only nice but are also very caring.”
