Changes to In-Person Visitation at NCHC Nursing Homes

Community Updates

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced a change to nursing home visitation that impacts Mount View Care Center and Pine Crest visitation regulations.

The new announcement requires nursing homes to allow visitation to residents, even if the unit is under enhanced or Covid-19 precautions due to outbreak or illness, as long as the visitor adheres to the current PPE requirements in place.

Therefore, visitors will no longer be informed that visitation is restricted for unvaccinated or vaccinated residents, or restricted for units under enhanced precautions. Visitors will be allowed during visiting hours and must adhere to the PPE precautions in place such as surgical mask, N95, eye protection, gloves and gown while visiting.
