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.
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 There are no updates to report regarding our Patients today.
Below is Today’s Daily Update, which reflects only the changes from yesterday’s information as it relates to the COVID-19 virus and Waveny’s patients, residents and caregiver status.
