Covid-19 Protocol

September 10, 2021– This page will be updated as the situation changes.

Trezevant has 83% of staff receiving at least one dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine.  We have over 90% with immunity when we include those employees who recently had COVID.

Currently four (4) staff members (1 in ACLF, 3 in SNF) are positive with COVID-19.  Currently no residents in Allen Morgan are positive for Covid 19.  Shelby County Health Department is helping review our processes to ensure that we are doing everything possible to prevent the spread of the virus.

Several staff members are out due to an exposure event away from Trezevant or they have tested positive somewhere other than Trezevant.

We are regularly testing staff regardless of vaccination status to ensure no asymptomatic employees are working.

We encourage everyone who has not been vaccinated to get the vaccine.  Locations for vaccination sites can be found at this link:  Memphis COVID-19 Updates – Memphis COVID-19 Updates (memphistn.gov)

Vaccines are mandatory for all staff and private companions.  Trezevant employees may ask for a religious or medical exemption.  All non-employees do not have that option.

 Masks

Masks are required for everyone in all common areas of the campus.  Failure to wear a mask may result in the person being removed from the campus.

Visitors to Trezevant

Due to the positivity rate in Shelby County, we implemented the following changes to our visitation:

Independent Living:  Visitors must be over the age of 12 to visit.  No guests are allowed in any of the dining venues (Snowden or Bistro).  Masks are required in all common areas.

Assisted Living: Visitation is open from 8am – 8pm with no time limits.  No reservation is required but all visitors must be screened. Mask must be worn in all public areas of the building.  No guest may spend the night in the resident’s apartment and only Trezevant residents may eat with them in the dining room.    Masks are required in all common areas.

Skilled Nursing:  Visitation is suspended due to positive cases.

Testing:

All unvaccinated staff members test twice a week.  All vaccinated staff members test every other week.

Testing times/locations:

Sunday 10a – noon & 6p-8p in Terrace Tea Room

Monday 6a – 9a & 1p – 4:30p in Terrace Tea Room; night shift tested by RN Supervisor in Allen Morgan or the floor nurse in Terrace.

Tuesday 11a-noon in Terrace Tea Room

Thursday 6a-9 & 1p-4:30p in Terrace Team Room; night shift tested by RN Supervisor in Allen Morgan or the floor nurse in Terrace.

Screening:

We screen all staff and contractors coming to healthcare to prevent exposing residents. Individuals are screened daily and are required to wear a mask anytime they are in public or around residents.  They are required to stay home if ill, especially with respiratory symptoms.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this difficult time and determine how to best serve our community, while maintaining our focus where it belongs: on our residents and dedicated staff.
