PVHC Community

10/15/21 update from the Director of Nursing:
Hello Everyone,
All the testing results have returned from this week's round of staff and resident testing and have been negative so far.
Visitation will re-open starting today at 10am for all neighborhoods with the exception of Prairieside 2, which will open on 10/21 with no further positive tests. Prairieside 2 can continue with compassionate and outdoor visitation at this time.
The facility remains in outbreak status for a minimum of 2 weeks since the last positive test - until 10/21, pending no further positive tests.
Community transmission has remained constant this week at 8.6% and has remained constant for the last 3 weeks. Overall community transmission remains high according to the CDC.
At this time, we will not be continuing with rapid testing visitors unless the community positivity rate increases above 10% again or the facilities infection control program deems it necessary based off of facility status.
Outdoor visitation is still highly recommended at this time, if able, due to high community transmission. We have seen re-infection and positive cases in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
Cumulative Staff and Resident totals since March 2020:
Residents- 22
Staff- 87
Testing:
Vaccinated staff will still need to be tested weekly until further notice. Unvaccinated staff are now required to increase testing frequency to twice weekly while the community levels are high.
Residents will be re-tested on Monday, October 18th.
Next week's staff testing times:
Monday, Oct. 18th 10:00-12:00
Tuesday, Oct. 19th 1:00-3:00
Thursday, Oct. 21st 10:30-11:30
Visitation:
Visitation is currently open for all neighborhoods at this time, except the admission quarantine neighborhood area on WS1 and Prairieside 2, and any individual residents on precautions related to exposure or symptoms.
Visitation hours remain 10-6 M-F and 8-4 on Saturday and Sunday. Compassionate care visits are on a case by case basis.
COVID Vaccine:
At this time vaccines are being offered every Wednesday at Sunnyview Expo Center for staff, residents, and the public. No appointments are necessary. Park View is willing to work with all residents regarding transportation, if needed. Staff may go to receive the vaccine on their breaks if needed; please communicate this with the RN Shift Supervisor.
The Oshkosh Public Library is a vaccine location in the Regional Vaccine Tour. A free COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be offered at the Oshkosh Public Library every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The library is located at 106 Washington Avenue in Oshkosh.
FREE COVID-19 VACCINE AT THE OSHKOSH FARMERS MARKET-
Vaccination available to anyone 12 years and older this Saturday!
The Winnebago County Health Department will offer vaccinations from 8 a.m. to Noon at the Time Community Theater (445 N Main St., Oshkosh). Two additional clinics will be held on October 23rd and 30th, same location and time.
Updates will continue to occur with any status changes or guidance changes.
Thank you!
Ashley Paul RN BSN
Director of Nursing
