May 1, 2020 5:00PM Waveny LifeCare Network COVID-19 Daily Update for Residents, Patients, and Families
Our primary mission is to help promote our community’s optimal health, and we have redoubled efforts to provide rigorous clinical support for our Patients’ and Residents’ ongoing wellness and recovery. Our work is more rewarding because of those in our community who in many ways provide creative, heartfelt support to enhance the Waveny organization’s quality of life. We thank you for your ongoing understanding and engagement.
Quality clinical interventions depend on our highly trained and inspired nursing team’s ability to deliver them. So, with National Nurses Week approaching soon (May 6th - May 12th), it seems fitting to recognize their contribution to our community.
From routinely making life-altering care decisions for multiple residents and patients, to performing a flurry of vital tasks with great precision, they have to be the coolest of heads in the room. Waveny LifeCare Network nurses continue to provide compassionate care while feeling the tremendous pressure of the unfolding COVID -19 situation, often at the risk of their own safety.
The Waveny we know today wouldn’t be possible without our clinical team’s unwavering dedication each and every day. In today’s update, we honor our nurses’ commitment to their profession, our organization, families and community.
The Village One additional Resident is now asymptomatic and recovering comfortably. Care Center One Patient was re-admitted and sadly, one patient succumbed to the virus and passed away this morning. Our deepest condolences and ongoing prayers are with their family.
The Inn The Inn continues to have no positive cases of COVID-19. Waveny Home Care No changes to report related to Home Care division clients. The Home Care Division will continue to assist local hospitals and healthcare providers in the home recuperation of their patients and residents.
