We know you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) and how it may impact us here at Premier Healthcare. Ensuring our staff and residents are in a safe and healthy environment is our TOP priority. Per guidance from local health departments, the CDC, CMS, and the Illinois Department of Public Health, we have implemented the following measures:
- Restricting all visitors, volunteers and non-essential health care personnel from visiting the facility, except for compassionate reasons such as end-of-life situations.
- Actively screening all health care personnel for respiratory symptoms including actively checking temperatures for a fever at the beginning of each shift, mid-day and end of shift. Anyone with these symptoms will not be permitted to enter the facility at any time.
- THOROUGH REVIEW of all patients coming from the hospital, whether new patients or re-admissions, to ensure we properly screen and accept patients.
