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.

As of January 25th, 2022, we have two residents and one staff member who have tested positive for COVID-19. Our staff member continues to follow CDC guidelines to recover and return to work safely. Our medical director and clinical staff continue to monitor our residents and employees daily.

As a reminder, with the NEW guidance released on 11/11/2021 by CMS (The Center for Medicare Services), visitation will remain OPEN regardless of a COVID outbreak for residents in a nursing home setting. Additionally, there are options for scheduling virtual visits for our residents if you live near or are out of town please call 319.293.3761 or use the link to schedule your time: keosauquahealthcare.com

At Keosauqua Healthcare Center, we want to assure you that we are adhering to rigorous infection control practices throughout our facility. We are 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.

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.

As of December 6th, 2021, we do not have any positive cases with our residents. Our two staff members who tested positive last week continue to recover. We do have an additional staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19. The last day worked for this staff member was 12/4. All of our team members continue to follow CDC guidelines to recover and return to work safely. Our medical director and clinical staff will continue to monitor residents daily. 

As a reminder, with the NEW guidance released on 11/11/2021 by CMS (The Center for Medicare Services), visitation will remain OPEN regardless of a COVID outbreak for residents in a nursing home setting. Additionally, there are options for scheduling virtual visits for our residents if you live near or are out of town please call 319.293.3761 or use the link to schedule your time: keosauquahealthcare.com

At Keosauqua Healthcare Center, we want to assure you that we are adhering to rigorous infection control practices throughout our facility. We are 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.

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. 
  • Practicing frequent hand hygiene in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  • Frequent disinfecting of high-touch surfaces to decrease environmental contamination.
