We have, unfortunately, had a staff member test positive for COVID-19 this week. The staff member has been put on a leave of absence and we are working diligently to test all of those who have come in contact with this staff member. We are working in close coordination with the County health department and will continue to screen our staff and residents rigorously.
On behalf of the entire team at Riverbend Post-Acute, we want to thank you for allowing us to care for you or your loved one. I am reaching out to introduce myself, Kristine Farrell, as the new Executive Director for Riverbend Post-Acute. Due to the ever changing circumstances within our community and here at Riverbend, I wanted to draw your attention to some updated policies that we are enforcing to ensure the safety and protection of our residents.
We understand that the loss of a loved one during this devastating pandemic is heartbreaking, and seeking answers is understandable. We want everyone to know that our team worked diligently to prevent the spread of this highly contagious virus.
