Happenings at The Piper.

 

At The Piper, we are taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously. We know that this is a dangerous virus that threatens high-risk populations, like seniors. And we know that it is becoming more rampant right here in Wyandotte County.

Since the start of March, we have implemented several measures at The Piper to decrease exposure to COVID-19 and keep residents and staff safe. As we’ve learned more about this highly contagious and deadly virus, we have updated our precautions to reflect that.

Here are some of the actions we’ve taken:

  • We developed a comprehensive crisis management plan
  • We ordered extra food, medical supplies, and cleaning products
  • Employees completed mandatory training on COVID-19 transmission, symptoms, and proper infection control
  • We increased our cleaning and sanitizing practices 
  • We banned visitors from coming into the building 
  • Employees are screened daily with a detailed questionnaire and temperature reading
  • All employees must disrobe in a decontamination area, change into clean clothes washed on site and put on face masks to avoid cross contamination
  • Face masks are required by all staff at all times
  • An isolation area has been established for new residents and current residents returning from the hospital 
  • Our team meets frequently to keep ahead of the Coronavirus and implement the best practices to keep everyone safe and healthy
  • We regularly notify employees, residents and their families of changes in our policies and procedures

More detailed information can be found through the links above.

Thank you for your support, patience and understanding as we all find ways to cope with our new normal.

Please stay safe and stay healthy.
