Dear Resident / Relative / Friend,
The latest routine COVID-19 swabbing of staff and residents in Brídhaven took place on Monday 4 January 2021. This resulted in a very small number of staff and residents testing positive for COVID-19. Numerous measures have been taken to manage this and the matter is very much under control and is being monitored very closely. Brídhaven’s Senior Management Team have been in touch with the staff, residents’ families, with the Department of Public Health and the HSE and will continue to liaise and communicate regularly. Most importantly, staff and residents are doing very well and are in great spirits.
The next routine COVID-19 swabbing of both residents and staff will take place on Monday 11 January 2021.
Brídhaven still has a tentative date of 20 January 2021 for the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccination rollout programme, although, as mentioned previously, this date may change. We will be in touch again when we are informed further in relation to the vaccine rollout.
Finally, our Assistant Director of Nursing, Maura O’Sullivan who has been in Brídhaven for almost seven years, leaves us early next week. We would ask that you join us in thanking Maura for fantastic service to Brídhaven, its residents and staff and in also wishing her the very best in her future endeavours.
Feel free to contact our Clinical Nurse Managers at any time if you have any specific questions or concerns.
As always, thank you for your support and understanding.
Deirdre Vaughan (Person in Charge)
Henry Burrows (CEO)
Paul Rochford (Registered Provider Representative)
