To ensure that the best infection prevention practices are observed and that all infection control measures are maintained in the facility, we are encouraging that all visitations be pre-arranged. Walk-ins may be accommodated at this time but with anticipation of delays as we continue to extend our efforts to keep our residents and our staff safe. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. Please share this information with all the visitors from your party.
We do not restrict any visitations at this time. We offer outdoor visitation and indoor visitation. In the event of an outbreak, we will provide notification regarding the facility’s updates and any changes in our visitation guidelines. We will allow in-person visitations regardless of the visitor’s vaccination status. We also have virtual visits available in an event where a family member is unable to visit their loved ones.
We strongly recommend that all visits be pre-arranged to provide our team sufficient time to ensure that all preparations needed for your visit have been completed such as disinfection and cleaning of designated visitation areas and replenishing of our PPE supply and other sanitation needs. Please click the REQUEST VISITATION NOW link at the bottom of the page to schedule your visitation appointments. You may also email us at email@example.com and our staff can assist you with any inquiries regarding visitation. Suggested visiting hours are from 10 AM to 7 PM.
Any visitor entering the facility, regardless of their vaccination status must safely self-screen for COVID-19 and or other respiratory symptoms, wear an appropriate facial covering, and perform hand hygiene in the facility. We require all visitors to comply with our infection prevention and control program to ensure the safety of our residents, employees, and visitors.
Parking is available on Vermont in front of the facility and behind our facility off 228th street. We request visitors to enter the facility through the front entrance and check in at the front lobby on the designated iPads. It is highly recommended that you check in 10-15 minutes before your scheduled time to maximize visitation times.
Wait times may vary depending on the number of visitors and/or zones being visited, and according to LADPH guidelines.
If you are unable to make your scheduled visit, please notify us as far in advance as possible (24 hours or more preferred) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you booked online, please follow the cancellation link in your confirmation email.
If a visitor is symptomatic upon self-screening or has been in close contact with a confirmed positive case, PLEASE DO NOT PROCEED with the visit. The facility would have to reschedule the visit and a follow up from our Infection Preventionist will be completed if necessary. Please be informed that further information may be requested for the purpose of contact tracing.
Visitor name tags will be available next to the check in station or at the receptionist’s desk.
All visitors must keep their name tags on at all times.
For all initial visits, an information sheet may be provided to ensure that we are able to provide all necessary resources for all visits.
For compassionate care visits such as end-of-life care, where multiple family members may need to visit at one time, please feel free to call the facility to inform us of your visit so we may make arrangements as necessary.
All visitors regardless of vaccination status may have physical contact with the resident they will be visiting with masks on during in-room and outdoor visitation (e.g., hug, holding hands).
All visitors in common areas such as the Lobby must maintain 6 ft social distancing from other visitors and residents not in the visitation party.
