Get in the holiday spirit and help decorate your loved one's room! Please remember we can't have any real wreaths or trees, extension cords, or multi-plug outlets. Door hangers are welcome but their doors must be able to open and close easily. Please direct any questions to staff.

Hand Washing & Flu Shots

Dear Family and Friends,

Our goal for this flue season and through out the year is to keep our residents infection free! We know that our residents are very prone to catching not only the flue but also all types of infections.

As visitors, please follow these simple rules:
1. Wash your hands: Washing your hands before and after your visit with EACH and EVERY residents. Alcohol based hand rubs are best. Dispensers are located through out the building, outside each resident's room and in each room. Use soap and water after using restrooms and when your hands are dirty.
2. Get vaccinated: Get a flue shot every year!
3. Cover your cough/sneeze: Cover your mouth and nose in your sleeve or with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Throw out used tissues immediately and clean your hands.
4. Stay home: When you are sick with fever, vomiting and/or diarrhea. Do not visit until you have had no further fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea for 48 hours.
5. Do not touch your face: This is the easiest way for germs to get into your body!

If you are ill and will not be able to visit as usual, let our nursing staff know. We will notify your loved one.

Mary Klade, RN, BSN, Inservice Director
