Drive-Thru Testing Change
Please note the change – Labox will no longer be hosting a community drive-thru covid testing site on our campus due to their staffing resources and volume.
PCR testing both staff and residents on Thursday 1/13/22 (residents beginning at 9am). Results are taking longer to get back from the lab due to volume in the local community.
Friendship Towers has partnered with Commonwealth Home health to provide Nursing care to residents that test positive (if they wish) – a nurse will follow them throughout illness, monitor vitals, complete respiratory assessment and monitor that they are taking medication as prescribe by physician. Nurse will also communicate with primary physician with any changes in condition. Each resident will be provided with their own pulsometer to monitor their oxygen saturation. Resident Assistants will be able to assist Memory Care Community Residents with vitals for this service.
Of course, any resident that is feeling any signs or symptoms, we are asking not to go down to the dining room. Meals will be delivered complimentary during this time to any residents not feeling well. Residents dining in the dining room will be socially distanced.
Residents and staff will all PCR test on Thursday, 1/12. Results are taking longer to get back from the lab due to volume in the local community.
