just got a call from the nursing home- mom's positive

They've had a major outbreak in The nursing home.... They had been doing really well with only a couple of cases all year long but apparently it's gotten out of control in there now...

They moved her into quarantine as of now she's feeling really tired and has a low-grade fever....

Of course I can't see her and as of right now I can't even talk to her but I'm working on that.....

This sucks

this fucking virus.

nursing homes it seems have been left behind. are they following protocols, can they keep people on staff, do they have and use the proper PPE?

I hope she has a mild case, recovers completely, and that you get a way to see and talk to her soon.

40. thank you yes they have been doing a stellar job all year long

they would call everyone periodically and let them know the status .... Whether there were any cases, precautions they were taking...They had only had a couple of cases all this time and they quickly moved them to a quarantine area..... But there is apparently a sudden outbreak and several people have it now 😱

30. I empathize

I am so sorry any of us have to go through this.

My 90-year old father was diagnosed with COVID on 11/16 (tested on 11/12). He had been under hospice care for a few months for extreme weight loss but seemed to be getting better. He fell on 11/18. The EMTs said he had hypoxia (oxygen level was under 90%) which is likely why he fell. He wound up in the hospital in a lot of pain. Since he was already a hospice patient, was inoperable due to many factors (not the least of which was his age), and he did not want any extraordinary measures taken, he was given palliative care to keep him comfortable. We FaceTimed and spoke to him on the phone but that is so impersonal. He died without any of us there to comfort him in the full COVID unit of the hospital on Wednesday.

Try and make sure your mom doesn't try and walk or at least has someone with her if she does. Hopefully, she will recover from the COVID. She might not recover from a related fall.

Best wishes for her full, safe recovery.

Debsy

My BiL is in an assisted living place here in town.
They've had several cases, but very spread out over time, and more staff than residents.
Let's hope for the best.

39. So sorry to hear that.

 

Spouse just minutes ago received a text from her BIL's Nursing Home contact person,saying they are notifying all the residents contact people as to five new positive cases today and that four staff people are in quarantine. This whole damn mess could have been avoided had each and everyone wore a mask both in the facility as well as outside. Mentioned this before,two to the staff never wore a mask within the community at all. In fact,both said it was a hoax.

60. Sincere sympathy

I haven't seen my family since Mid-March, when I moved my father in to assisted living. My father was diagnosed with Covid-19 a few weeks ago and hospitalized, but thankfully never needed supplemental oxygen. He has since been moved to a nursing/rehab unit, and is doing well. At first, after moving there, he didn't remember much - his children, his wife (he spent 60+ years with her). I think it was Covid fog. Two weeks later he is much better and remembers us. His younger brother, not so much. He was diagnosed after my dad, was doing well, and within 12 hours was dead. Had a Vimeo memorial service.

They were both in a really great organization, one that has also been controlling things very well, and still are, but have a few cases, which happened to impact us personally.

Sorry for making this about me, but my intention is to let you know that others have gone though this and empathize with you. I truly do, and send my love your way. While there is loss (like my uncle) there is also hope (like my father).

Please keep us up to date, and know that more people than you know are sending love and prayers your way.
