    Coronavirus Update 5/15/2020

    Posted May 15, 2020 in News

    Inland Christian Home (ICH) remains free of any known suspected Coronavirus issues amongst our residents and staff!

    The past week has been relatively quiet. Last weekend was Mother’s Day. We did have many SNF families and friends visit under the EZ Up setup by the SNF dining room windows and there were many other “over the fence” visits in areas around the facility.

    This past week the staff worked hard on developing a program for controlled visitation in every level of care at ICH. The program included designated areas, scheduling, participant guidelines, and infection control protocols. We were excited to implement the program and thought it presented minimal risk, however the agencies that regulate ICH continue to not allow visitors. The prior visitor policies remain in effect.

    ICH has been in communication with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Public Health (DPH), Department of Social Services (DSS), and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), County of San Bernardino, City of Ontario Fire Department, and others. The communication with the DPH is nearly daily. ICH continues to monitor and following government instructions and requirements.

    ICH has received Coronavirus test kits and will be testing as advised and required by regulatory agencies. The SNF remains the priority for testing. This past week there were many national and local news reports/commentary on testing in senior living facilities. The federal and local government’s comments/directives are somewhat contradictory and the reality of obtaining and administering tests remains a challenge.

    ICH would like to thank our residents, staff, families, friends, Board of Directors, and any individuals or businesses for their cooperation and assistance.

    The battle against this virus is far from over. Please continue to pray for the safety of the residents and staff, and pray for God’s guidance as we move forward.

    We will continue to communicate with residents and update our website, www.ich.org, with information for residents, families, and the general public.

    Coronavirus Update 5/8/2020

    Posted May 08, 2020 in News

    Inland Christian Home (ICH) remains free of any known suspected Coronavirus issues amongst our residents and staff!

    ICH would like to thank our residents, staff, families, friends, Board of Directors, and any individuals or businesses for their cooperation and assistance.

    This week is national nurses’ week. We especially thank our nurses, our HEROES providing direct care and services to our residents. However, all the ICH staff are heroes. Thank you all continuing to do your job even through anxiety and stress.

    ICH has been in communication with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Public Health (DPH), Department of Social Services (DSS), and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), County of San Bernardino, City of Ontario Fire Department, and others. The communication with the DPH is nearly daily. ICH continues to monitor and following government instructions and requirements.

    The ICH campus remains closed to visitors. The number one questions we receive is when will this change.

    ICH is talking about what “re-opening” will look like. We are currently discussing “visitor” zones and allowing visitation in a controlled environment. The timing and how ICH moves forward with this, will largely depend on the guidance from government agencies.

    It is very apparent that our residents are missing their family and friends and everyone is eager to move forward. Loneliness and isolation are issues. ICH recognizes this and is eager to move forward too, but we must balance many factors in making these decisions.

    As you are aware, we did announce that on April 23 we were informed by a 11-7 shift Skilled Nursing employee that they had tested positive for coronavirus. The employee was and remains asymptomatic.  The employee has now tested negative. Many persons that the employee came in frequent and close contact were tested. They also tested negative.

    We have started to receive Coronavirus test kits. We will begin the process of testing, starting with SNF related employees and SNF residents. We will then determine the best course of action for testing throughout the rest of the campus.

    The battle against this virus is far from over. Please continue to pray for the safety of the residents and staff, and pray for God’s guidance as we move forward.

    We will continue to communicate with residents and update our website, www.ich.org, with information for residents, families, and the general public.
