24 July 2020
Dear Resident / Relative / Friend,
Last night NPHET announced that the “R”, reproduction number, is falling and as a result Brídhaven Nursing Home has taken the decision to once again open to visitors from Monday 27 July 2020.
We fully acknowledge how difficult that it has been over the past number of months for all of you and your loved ones.
We remain fully committed to protecting you and your loved ones as much as possible from the awfulness of COVID-19.
As a management team we will always look at our local situation here in Brídhaven when deciding on what rules we will put in place for visiting and we will continue to do so with the best interests of our residents and staff in mind.
From Monday 27 July, residents may receive a maximum of two visits per week from any two visitors i.e. nominations are no longer required. All visitors will be risk assessed, temperature checked and will be provided with appropriate PPE.
Visits must be pre booked as before with Reception and may last a maximum of 30 minutes.
Visiting will be restricted to the marquee outside the nursing home rather than in the resident’s room.
Children under the age of 16 will not be allowed to visit.
We would ask that you please contact the nursing home and speak with a member of our Senior Management Team if you have travelled overseas or have been in contact with anybody who has travelled overseas.
Finally, we constantly strive to improve the way we operate and would like your feedback in relation to this. We have compiled a survey which we would like you to fill out and return to us at your earliest opportunity. This survey can be reached by clicking here. Please be assured that we will keep your responses confidential and will only use them to inform our decision making going forward.
Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and resilience.
Maura O’Sullivan, Person in Charge
