• COVID-19 Care Plan Toolkit v1 (Released 6/25/20)
    During the COVID-19 Focused Survey process, surveyors are reviewing care plans to ensure residents who are Positive for COVID-19, new admissions, those suspected of having COVID-19 AND residents at risk for contracting the virus, have person-centered care plans in place. These care plans should address resident specific risks including the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus and risks associated with isolation such as choking. This Care Plan Toolkit contains samples of infection control care plans that may be personalized for individual residents. At the end of the day, we are responsible for providing appropriate care to each resident even during a pandemic. Remember, the situation may have changed but care needs may have actually increased. Stay well!
