UPDATED May 22, 2020

We are happy to report that Cedar Haven remain COVID-Free at this time. As you know, the number of Coronavirus cases in Lebanon County has climbed substantially and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as well as our local Department of Health officials are monitoring the situation closely. Thankfully, our residents and staff have remained safe in part due to the heroic efforts of our team to maintain infection control protocols and precautions.

You can always view our current policies and the precautions we put in place to protect our residents on this web page (https://cedarhaven.healthcare/coronavirus), which will we keep up-to-date:

All Non-Essential Visitation is Still Restricted Until Further Notification

It is in the best interest of our residents to stop all non-essential visitation to our facility.

Video Call Technology at Cedar Haven

We are proud to announce that our “Resident Care Connection” and Telehealth program has been well received and utilized by many of our residents and their loved ones. We have conducted over 150 video calls over the last month! Families interested in coordinating a video call with their loved ones can request a planned meeting time at https://cedarhaven.healthcare/video.

Telehealth for Specialist Care

Cedar Haven has also been offering numerous telemedicine opportunities for our residents that allow them to continue to access additional specialist care without being exposed to unnecessary risk of exposure to COVID-19. To date, our residents have received assisted Telehealth services that have directly connected them to specialists in psychiatry, neurology, endocrinology, orthopedics, and more, without leaving the comfort or safety of their rooms! These events are powered by SAGE Health, which enables the secure transmission of private health care information to the provider office.

Screening

We continue to conduct required screening for all personnel and vendors as they come into our building, which involves signing a form to attest to screening criteria as well as temperature checks conducted multiple times a day. For residents who require hospitalization, we have provided a safe, comfortable, and separated area of our building where they can return to Cedar Haven and wait 14 days before matriculating back into their usual living quarters. This policy, and all of our current procedures, are designed to proactively keep our residents safe and lower risk of exposure for those who call our facility home.

We cannot say at this time how long these restrictions and policies will be in effect. Our clinical team will continue to monitor this evolving situation and will consider the necessity of this policy moving forward as new information becomes available. In the interest of protecting our vulnerable residents and our staff, please continue to adhere fully to these policies. As you know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) can severely impact the elderly or those with chronic health conditions.

Social Distancing Activities

Our Therapeutic Recreation Department has been creative and proactive in leading a number of fun activities for residents that are designed to keep them safe and smiling. For example, they are using our television broadcast system to run live bingo games that can be enjoyed from each resident room.

 

 

Our social distancing dance parades in the hallways have continued to be enjoyed by all.

Please continue to check back for new updates. Thank you for your continued support during this time!
