Responding to the COVID-19 Virus
Sansbury Care Center understands that you may be concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) being reported in the media and how it may affect our facility. Ensuring that residents are safely cared for in a healthy environment is our greatest concern. At this time we do not have any cases in our facility or in our county.
As a result of national and state directives to all nursing homes, Sansbury Care Center is limiting resident visitations to end-of-life care situations only.
In addition, Mass and Communion Services will not be open to the public until further notice. We understand that connecting with family members and residents is important, therefore we urge you to consider alternate ways to contact them. Some suggested ways to contact residents include by telephone, text, mail, email, Skype or Facebook.
As suggested by the Kentucky Department of Public Health, Sansbury Care Center has implemented health screening for essential personnel that enter the facility. Our center is also following the prevention steps recommended by the CDC and is actively monitoring all updates. Other agencies also being monitored for information are local and state health departments, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) and the Kentucky Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all work together to keep our residents safe.
