The Riverview Healthcare Campus has gone three weeks without a new positive staff member, so the campus is not currently operating in Outbreak Status. Officials once again thank its staff for their phenomenal job of protecting themselves, residents and coworkers.
There were no additional cases due to this positive staff member.
Ottawa County is still considered to have a HIGH community spread. All staff members in resident areas or with potential resident contact must wear eye protection, either full goggles or a full face shield. Regular eyeglasses do meet this requirement.
While this requirement doesn’t include visitors, it does include all volunteers in the chapel and gift shop.
Infection Preventionist, Jen Parkinson, RN, BSN, WCC is leaving Riverview Healthcare Campus, and the officials and staff thank Parkinson for all she has done for the residents and staff during her seven years at Riverview. Along with being our Infection Preventionist, she also was the Restorative Nurse and Wound Care Nurse.
Megan Finn, RN, MDS Coordinator, will take on the role of Infection Preventionist, with the assistance of Director of Nursing Lisa Dobbelare, until she is fully prepared to take the entire role over. Dobbelare will be taking over the facility’s wounds at this time.
The Resident Booster Clinic for residents will be scheduled soon.
