We know you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) and how it may impact us here at Premier Healthcare. Ensuring our staff and residents are in a safe and healthy environment is our TOP priority. Per guidance from local health departments, the CDC, CMS, and the Illinois and Indiana Departments of Public Health, we have implemented the following measures:
- Restricting all visitors, volunteers and non-essential health care personnel from visiting the facility, except for compassionate reasons such as end-of-life situations.
- Actively screening all health care personnel for respiratory symptoms including actively checking temperatures for a fever at the beginning of each shift, mid-day and end of shift. Anyone with these symptoms will not be permitted to enter the facility at any time.
- THOROUGH REVIEW of all patients coming from the hospital, whether new patients or re-admissions, to ensure we properly screen and accept patients.
