First Confirmed Case of COVID-19
April 22, 2020
Friends & Family of Casas Adobes,
We have our first confirmed case of COVID-19 here at Casas Adobes. This is a new patient who admitted from the hospital last week and was immediately tested. The results took 48 hours to receive.
We have been preparing for this day for nearly 2 months implementing COVID-19 protocols as they have been released. From nursing and housekeeping to maintenance and dietary, we felt prepared.
Our Director of Nursing and her team sprang into action. The patient remains at our facility under the care of an attending physician.
One thing we are blessed with at Casas Adobes Post Acute is space. Incorporated into our plan for any COVID+ patients was to use an empty wing for those potential patient(s).
We have a robust infection process and have implimented all new guidance shared by the CDC, Medicare and AZ DHS to keep our patients and employees safe.
We encourage you to stay in contact with your loved one. Phone calls and text messages and video chats all can make such a difference.
We’re so appreciative to our residents/patients and families for all the prayers and support during this difficult time. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Robert Eagar, CEO
