In the weeks leading up to now, we have taken every precaution, following every guideline provided by the CDC and CMS including restricting entry, monitoring aggressively our staff and residents for signs and symptoms, excessive training and retraining on staff proficiency for infection control, deep cleaning, social distancing, and many other proactive measures to ensure our residents and staff safety. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the novel virus and long incubation period during which most people are asymptomatic, we have identified at least one case in the facility who has tested positive for COVID-19. So what does that mean? Well, we have notified the appropriate authorities including the Department of Health, and Health and Human Services. They were very complimentary of our efforts thus far, and had no further recommendations to reduce the risk other than what we are already doing. We have isolated the risk, but we must be aggressive with our efforts. Therefore we are prophylactically isolating all residents in the area potentially affected. Rest assured we have plenty of support at all levels, and despite the PPE shortage around the country, we are not without the needed supplies. We remain in daily communication with the appropriate individuals, and appreciate everyone’s support. Rest assured if your loved one has been presumed positive or is exhibiting a change in condition, the resident representative will be contacted immediately.
At Desert Springs Healthcare we strive to help patients reach their goals. People are the heart of our business and we recognize the responsibility of providing quality services. Our team of professionals understands the importance of creating an environment of warmth and caring during a stay, whether short term rehab or long term care.
Our skilled nursing and rehabilitation center does more than care for long term residents. Our rehabilitation/nursing team assists in the recovery from surgery, injury or illness. Spacious, rooms with TV’s and phones, 24 hour nursing care + doctor recommended rehabilitation is designed to “Help you get back home.”
When the day arrives for you to return home our team may arrange for Home Health and/or other programs to assist you in a safe transition back home. Desert Springs Healthcare also offers Palliative to Supportive Care Services to complete the continuum of care.
“I have been so impressed with your staff, my brother was admitted to your care because of several problems that will not let him live without assistance. I have heard many horror stories about nursing homes but I find that not to be true with your organization. In fact, we the family find your staff members to be kind, considerate, ready to listen, and very professional.”
“Words can’t truly express my gratitude concerning the loving care my father was given during his stay at Brentwood II.”
“I feel that the care shown to her was and is the important ingredient to her improved recovery. My wife is getting around on her feet more confidently now. The wound care given was professional and commended by hospital staff at Baylor.”
