CRMC Care Center/Heartwood restrictions

Web posted March 24, 2020
Following Minnesota Department of Health guidelines, Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Care Center and Heartwood are limiting the number of visitors in end-of-life situations at one time to two people.

Facilities are required to restrict visitation of all visitors and non-essential health care personnel, except for certain compassionate care situations, such as an end-of-life situation. CRMC’s Geriatrics Medical Director Dr. David Goodwin has defined end-of-life situation as a life expectancy of less than one month or actively dying.

All visitors entering the facility will be required to perform hand hygiene, use a face mask and complete a screening which includes symptoms of illness, fever or respiratory symptoms. Those with symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat) will not be permitted to enter the facility at any time, even in end-of-life situations. Visits will be restricted to the resident’s room.

Visitors should refrain from physical contact with residents and others while in the facility. For example, practice social distances with no hand shaking or hugging, and remaining six feet apart.
