COVID-19 Update: April 28th

Dear Residents, Families and Staff:

This is a reminder that each day we are updating our COVID-19 status on our website at wvmuncie.com and on our in house digital signs.  In accordance with ISDH guidelines, we are providing additional data related to any New Positive Cases in the last 24 hours and Total Recoveries.

Our website also contains all communications shared during this crisis that includes information about how we are handling this COVID-19 situation including:

  • General COVID-19 information
  • What you can do to reduce your exposure to the virus
  • Actions we have implemented to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission

Our Visitation Policy continues as follows:

No Visitors are allowed in the building.  This includes resident visitations to the health center as well as visitations from friends and family from the outside.  We encourage families and friends to stay connected by telephone calls, cards, letters, texts, Facebook, Skype, FaceTime and other forms of social media.

We continue to screen and check temperatures of all employees upon entrance into the building before the start of their shift.  Residents are also screened daily for signs and symptoms as well as a temperature check.  All employees and residents are wearing face masks.

Also included is a Fact Sheet – COVID-19 AND NURSING HOMES – What Residents and Family Need to Know.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may call 765-288-2155 or contact the front desk so you can be connected with an Administrator or the Director of Nursing.  If you feel you have not been able to get your questions or concerns addressed by the facility, you may also contact the Local Ombudsman, Maureen Walby at 800-589-1121 or 765-759-1121 or Maureen.Walby@ilsi.net
