State of the Art Safety
Safety is a Top Priority
We have multiple prevention methods for the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. These include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma has been shown to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores, and recent studies have demonstrated a significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.
Partnering With Industry Experts
We developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to help prevent the spread of disease. We partnered with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while following state and CDC guidance.
Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:
Following all guidance and requirements for state and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to ensure optimal patient, family and staff safety
Residents are monitored and screened regularly
Teammates and guests wear masks throughout their shifts/visits when required
When residents have an engaging social life, they’re able to live more comfortably and productively. Activities give structure which provides them certainty in knowing what’s coming up next; time goes by faster and increases a sense of purpose. There’s also something comforting about having people around who care enough to make your days a little more interesting.
“I have been at Franklin Oaks for five years. I enjoy hanging out with my friends in the activity room and doing social activities here that I had always enjoyed when I was home. I like being around people and the staff encourage us to have fun here. The staff interacts with us in a way that makes us feel comfortable and if I have an issue, they take the time to listen and fix it.“
