Yesterday, March 12, 2020, Governor Cuomo announced a series of heightened steps intended to safeguard New Yorkers from COVID-19, including instructing all nursing homes across New York State to bar visitors, except in very limited and carefully controlled circumstances. In the press conference, the Governor also signaled an expectation that all healthcare workers within nursing homes wear surgical masks – part of a broader effort to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 being introduced into a nursing home setting.
Chapin Home is working diligently to provide for various alternative ways to visit “virtually” with your loved one. Please contact the Activities Dept at ext 2120 to hear the options. Nursing Unit Managers are also available to provide concise clinical updates if you feel that is necessary. The numbers have been provided in Update #2 on our web page.
Please be mindful, Chapin is doing its best during very challenging times. We are being patient with your requests and questions and ask that you do the same when interacting with all the hard working staff who continue to compassionately care for our most important priority- The Residents!
