Protecting our residents and staff

Our number one priority continues to be to protect our residents and staff from COVID-19.  Thankfully there are no cases of COVID-19 to report. 

Kimberly Gibbs BSN, RN, CMSRN, Vice President of Nursing, spoke with the KDHE yesterday and reported today that “Larksfield is surpassing the KDHE’s best practices for infection prevention.  We are in a very good place.”  Larksfield’s Infection Prevention Committee meets daily and doesn’t apologize for making tough decisions.  Procedures are working.  Karen Wilkerson, Health Care Center Administrator, has said from the very beginning “When the decision is tough is when the decision needs to be made; if it were easy it would be too late.”

One concern is that even with locking down the campus we still have too many residents leaving for "errands."   We are reminding residents that if they leave campus they are putting themselves and others at risk.   We feel everyone would benefit from reviewing the KDHE’s FAQ – STAY HOME ORDERS.

We are reminding residents that there are services that we can do for them such as picking up Dillon’s “Click List”, running errands for them and arranging for pharmacy deliveries.  We are encouraging resident families to call the administrator of the residential building if there is a need unknown to us and we will find a solution. 

Larksfield Place Prayer of the Day:   Lord, leadership is not about bearing down; it’s about bearing responsibility. Grant me insight that I might bear the right responsibilities, and possess the discipline to bear them well. Amen.  ~Larry W. Cracraft, Larksfield Place Chaplain

A MESSAGE to Residents and Staff

Relias is offering free, unlimited access to relevant resources to help healthcare professionals and individuals prepare, control, and prevent the spread of infection:  How To Prepare for Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Influenza:  Free Online Training & Resources

 

Larksfield Place Prayer of the Day: 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is despair, let me sow hope,

Where there is darkness, light,

Where there is sadness, joy. Amen.

                                              – St. Francis

Grant me, I pray, awareness of the depth of others’ despair, of the darkness that whelms them, and the busy-ness that masks their sadness. Strengthen my faith that I might bear your joy to them.

The STAY AT HOME precautions and instructions for resident deliveries has been UPDATED HERE.  Changes to note:

  1. We have extended the effective date through at least May 1, 2020, and we should be prepared for it to be in effect beyond that.
  2. We will NO LONGER ALLOW any family members/guests onto campus UNLESS they qualify for the Essential Needs Visit.  They are no longer allowed to bring packages onto the campus.  Our staff will receive them at the gate and deliver to the resident.
  3. Any residents that leave campus will now be required to be monitored for symptoms, and if they present ANY COVID-19 symptoms during that period, they will be quarantined for 14-days following the on-set of those symptoms.

The changes go into effect immediately. 

Larksfield Place Prayer of the Day: 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love,

Where there is injury, pardon

Where there is doubt, faith. Amen.

                                              – St. Francis
