Spaulding Nursing and Therapy Center Brighton

December 31, 2021

Dear Spaulding Brighton Community,

We are updating you on the status of COVID-19 in the facility. On 12/30/21 we were notified that three additional staff members and one additional patient have tested positive for COVID-19. This information has been reported to Massachusetts Department of Public Health Epidemiologist.

Currently, all units are in quarantine and each patient and resident has been placed on enhanced respiratory isolation precautions out of an abundance of caution. Staff will continue to use full personal protective equipment (PPE) for the care of all residents. Residents are required to isolate in their rooms (except for medically necessary appointments) and all group activities and dining are suspended until no positive cases have been identified for 14 days. While visitation can continue, we recommend that visits to the affected units be deferred at this time. We encourage using our virtual visit program which is facilitated by our Activities department. Please call 617-726-7575 to schedule.

We will continue to test all patients, residents and staff for COVID-19 a minimum of twice weekly.

The best defense against COVID-19 continues to be vaccines. As cases in the community increase it is important that those who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine or booster receive one.

Please remember to wear a mask when interacting with staff and visitors and practice frequent hand hygiene.

We know this news may cause concern and we are here to help support you and answer questions. Should you have any questions, please contact Jeanne Putnam at 617-726-9778 or call 617-726-9700 and ask for the Nursing Supervisor on duty.

Thank you,
Keith Beers
Executive Director

Visitor Information for Spaulding Nursing and Therapy Center Brighton

Updated December 2, 2021

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health have expanded visitation in skilled nursing facilities to allow in-room visits for residents. 

All visitors must adhere to the core principles of infection prevention and control which include:

Core Principles of COVID-19 Infection Prevention

  • Visitors will be screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine (exposed to someone with COVID-19), should not enter the facility.
  • Frequent Hand hygiene (use of alcohol-based hand rub is preferred).
  • Face covering or mask (covering mouth and nose) and physical distancing at least six feet between people, in accordance with CDC guidance.

While not recommended, residents who are in isolation or quarantine can still receive visitors. In these cases, visits should occur in the resident’s room and the resident must wear a well-fitting facemask (if tolerated).

Before visiting residents who are in isolation or quarantine, visitors should be made aware of the potential risk of visiting and precautions necessary in order to visit the resident.

Visitors should adhere to the core principles of infection prevention. Visitors who are unable to adhere to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention should not be permitted to visit or should be asked to leave.

It is strongly advised that visitors to COVID-19 positive or quarantined residents should be fully vaccinated and maintain physical distance. Visitors must wear a facility issued mask and the facility should monitor visitor compliance with hand hygiene.

Protocol

Each resident in a semi-private room may have one in-room visitor at a time to comply with the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention.

A resident may have more than one visitor at a time, but the visit must be conducted in the second-floor main dining room where space allows for appropriate social distancing.

Visitors may only proceed directly to the resident’s room or dedicated visitation space and may not go to common areas.

Large gatherings and groups cannot be accommodated per the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Visitor restrictions are subject to change based on guidelines set forth by Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Thank you for your compliance. Spaulding Nursing and Therapy Brighton staff are working to ensure the safety of patients through many methods. Get more information on Spaulding’s COVID-19 response and updates.
