Covid Status

Our goal, from the start of this Pandemic, has been to be transparent with the impact COVID is having inside our facility of excellence. The COVID status tracker for Residents and employees is another way we can provide full transparency to our Residents, families, and employees. The information provided will be updated each weekday, Monday through Friday. Information provided by the close of the day on Monday will reflect what occurred over the weekend.

9.14.21

As of September 14, 2021, we have one staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19. The last day worked for this employee was today 9/14/21. Our team member will follow CDC guidelines to recover and return to work safely. We will be testing all staff and residents today.

At Keosauqua Health Care Center, we want to assure you that we are adhering to rigorous infection control practices throughout our facility. We will start conducting twice-weekly facility-wide testing per the Iowa Dept. of Health guidance and CMS. Regular testing is an effective method of slowing the virus’s spread, so we look forward to continuing this practice until the virus is no longer prevalent.

We continue to stay in touch with the County Health Department to ensure we are following the most up-to-date policies and procedures to defend against the spread of the virus. We are also collaborating with our medical director daily.

Unfortunately, we cannot allow visitors inside our facility at this time. We are able to allow compassionate care visits. We do strongly encourage families to schedule a phone call or virtual call with your loved one. Please reach out to the facility directly at 319.931.5469 to schedule time or you may also message us at the link below.

As a reminder, the following defensive measures are in place at our facility:

  • Closely monitoring and screening all residents and team members for symptoms on a daily and shift-by-shift basis. This includes temperature checks and other CDC-recommended screenings.
  • Enforcing social distancing.
  • Allowing only essential individuals (those providing critical care for residents) into the healthcare community.
  • Practicing frequent hand hygiene in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  • Frequent disinfecting of high-touch surfaces to decrease environmental contamination.
  • Taking higher-than-required protective equipment precautions, such as wearing N95 masks, gloves and gowns as situations warrant their use.
  • Requiring all residents to stay in their rooms to better protect themselves.

Thank you for your kindness and understanding through this time.

Sincerely,
