Phone Message | June 3, 2020 Greetings from Mount View Care Center and Pine Crest Nursing Homes! Today is Wednesday June 3. Over the last week and half, residents and employees have participated in voluntary covid-19 testing. This is to provide us with a point in time assessment of our current situation. With 465 total staff tested and 257 residents from MVCC and Pine Crest, we have no covid-19 positive residents or staff at this time. Even though these results are hopeful, we will continue to restrict all visitors to our nursing home facilities at this time. We are working on plans for the what visitation may look like at both nursing homes and we encourage you to keep sending cards, making calls and using technology to talk with residents.

New Phone Notification System

Above is the latest phone message sent to nursing home primary contacts through our new communication tool. Please click below to listen to the latest message:

The primary contact for each nursing home resident will be receiving a recorded phone call as needed to update you with Covid-19 related announcements and news. These notifications are part of our efforts to keep you informed and meet the new requirements by CMS.

As of Monday, May 11, all nursing homes in the US are required by CMS to inform our residents, their representatives and families of any confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases in their facility. The communication must occur by 5 p.m. the next calendar day following each occurrence. That may be a single case; or three or more residents or staff with new respiratory symptoms occurring within 72 hours of one other. Additionally, NCHC reports information weekly to the CDC.

If you have any questions, you can always call the social work team (phone numbers are at the bottom of this page) or email info@norcen.org.


Current Nursing Home Visitor Restrictions Updated 5/20/20

We are currently still restricting all visitors to our nursing home facilities. Given the critical importance in limiting COVID-19 exposure in nursing homes, decisions on relaxing these restrictions are being made with careful review of a number of facility-level, community, and State factors, and in collaboration with State and local health officials. We will continue to operate in the best interest of our residents.

We invite you bookmark and share this page with your family and friends who may not be on this call list. You can also visit our pages on Facebook and Twitter.
