Waveny LifeCare Network COVID-19 Daily Update
for Residents, Patients, and Families

As another week draws to a close, we reaffirm our commitment to each individual Patient and Resident’s recovery. Not every individual follows the same path nor follow similar test results. Every individual has their own care plan, rate of production of antibodies, and testing regimes. To insure lab accuracy, especially as it relates to COVID-19, we closely monitor tandem reference points PCR nasopharyngeal swab (PCR) and serum antibody IgG test results.      

Waveny’s aggregate data can be found at: waveny.org/daily-statistics

The Village
We remain consistent in our reporting grid. Should a Resident’s PCR test result change or become contrary to a high IgG serum antibody reading, we will revert back to reporting as positive until the test can be repeated and reaffirmed.  

Care Center

There are no updates to report regarding our Patients today.  

The Inn
The Inn continues to have no positive cases of COVID-19.

Waveny Home Care

Comments:  

We will continue to retest diligently across our Continuum to ensure we maximize conversions of positive PCR test results to negative, and elevate the wellness and recovery potential of our Patients and Residents. Please continue to remain safe as we redouble efforts to eradicate COVID-19 virus risk exposure in our community. We are most appreciative of your ongoing support and feedback.  

Your nursing supervisor will have specific medical details on your family member. Please continue to reach out to them on clinical issues, and to me on non-clinical issues or questions.
