    ICH Update 10/14/2020

    Posted October 14, 2020 in News

    On October 6, 2020 the Department of Social Services (DSS), which governs AL and Independent Living (IL), released detailed guidelines for testing, dining, activities and other topics. ICH is implementing these recommendations and will communicate any pertinent information to our residents/families.

    The Skilled Nursing (SNF) continues to allow restricted visitation with safety protocols. These protocols include scheduling, checking in, specific visitation areas, personal protective equipment, social distancing, and staff monitoring. To schedule a visit or get information on specific protocols for SNF contact Imelda Reyes 909-467-6177.

    The Cottages and Apartments (IL) are open to visitors. However, the DSS guidelines are different for IL residents that receive AL services. ICH staff will communicate individually with the IL residents that this affects and work with them in order to meet these specific guidelines. For all other IL residents, please continue to observe the following guidelines for Cottage and Apartment visitation:

    • Visitors should take the most direct route to and from the unit being visited
    • Do not visit if you are sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Wear a mask and social distance
    • Keep visits to a minimum
    • Keep the number of visitors to a minimum

    The parking lot project directly east of the SNF has started. The project will add additional parking spaces in this area. This will be a fairly large project and will cause some inconveniences. Some things you should be aware of:

    • The project will take about 60 days to complete
    • The area will be completely fenced off, which means that there will be no foot or automobile traffic in or through the areas of the parking lot
    • We plan to keep the circular driveway and parking spaces around the rose garden and flag pole open as much as possible, there may be a few days in which this will be impossible
    • Visitors may need to use parking around the rear or west side of the SNF or other parking areas around the grounds
    • Additional information will be provided as the project progresses

    It clear that the pandemic is far from over and we must remain vigilant in our efforts to protect those that live at ICH.  

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

    Please continue to pray for ICH, the residents, employees, families, and Board of Directors.

    Please contact Mary Wolff at 909-467-6152 and maryw@ichome.org with any questions.

    Sincerely,

    David Stienstra

    We are continuing to complete testing across the campus per the applicable regulatory guidelines.

    The Skilled Nursing (SNF), Assisted Living (AL) and the Haven are allowing restricted visitation. Each area is following their own safety protocols for visitation. These protocols include scheduling, checking in, specific visitation areas, personal protective equipment, social distancing, and staff monitoring. To schedule a visit or get information on specific protocols for each area contact Imelda Reyes 909-467-6177 for SNF, Lisa Armstrong 909-467- 6273 for AL, and Eve Javier 909-467-6192 for the Haven.

    • Wear a mask and social distance

    ICH is now completing and planning for many projects around the campus. Safety protocols for vendors are in place.

    On approximately October 12, 2020 we will begin construction in the parking area directly east of the SNF. The project will add additional parking spaces in this area. This will be a fairly large project and will cause some inconveniences. Some things you should be aware of:

    • The project will take about 60 days to complete
    • The area will be completely fenced off, which means that there will be no foot or automobile traffic in or through the areas of the parking lot

    • Visitors may need to use parking around the rear or west side of the SNF or other parking areas around the grounds
    • Additional information will be provided as the project progresses

    Please remember that these policies are subject to change if ICH has additional positive tests or government regulations and guidelines change.

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

    Please continue to pray for ICH, the residents, employees, families, and Board of Directors.

    Coronavirus Update 9/15/2020

    Posted September 15, 2020 in News

    Campus wide all employee COVID-19 test results for the last five weeks have been negative!

    The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) released updated testing guidelines for the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) that are dictated by county positivity rates and facility positive test results. We are now testing SNF staff once per week. SNF residents will not be tested unless there are positive staff tests or a resident has COVID-19 symptoms. We are considering starting restricted indoor visitation with safety protocols.

    Assisted Living (AL) and the Haven are allowing restricted indoor visits with safety protocols in place such as such as scheduling, checking in, specific visitation areas, personal protective equipment, social distancing, and staff monitoring. To schedule a visit for the Assisted Living please contact Lisa Armstrong and for the Haven please contact Eve Javier. The AL and Haven employees are continuing on a “surveillance” testing schedule. AL residents will not be tested unless there are positive staff tests or a resident has COVID-19 symptoms.

    The Cottages and Apartments are open to visitors. Please observe the following guidelines for Cottage and Apartment visitation:

    • Visitors should take the most direct route to and from the unit being visited
    • Do not visit if you are sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Wear a mask and social distance
    • Keep visits to a minimum
    • Keep the number of visitors to a minimum

    Activities, where social distancing can be observed, have been restarted. The beauty shop is still not open. We are evaluating ways in which we can open up the dining room to Cottage and Apartment residents.

    ICH is now completing admissions for all levels of care. Safety protocols for admissions are in place.

    ICH is now refurbishing units and scheduling/completing various projects. Safety protocols for vendors are in place. 

    Please remember that these policies are subject to change if ICH has additional positive tests or government regulations and guidelines change.

    The daily number of positive tests in San Bernardino County has been trending down and the last few weeks have been relatively quiet. You may have noticed that my last few updates have been less frequent. If things continue to “normalize” the notices will continue to get less frequent.

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

    Please continue to pray for ICH, the residents, employees, families, and Board of Directors.

    Please contact Mary Wolff at 909-467-6152 or email at maryw@ichome.org with any questions.
