06/16/2020 Letter to Family and Friends
Dear Sinai Residents, Employees, Families, Friends, and Doctors;
I hope this letter finds you Healthy & Safe!
Sinai Post Acute Nursing & Rehab has an entire floor dedicated to a Covid-19 Recovery Unit to best accommodate all residents in the facility that require care during this time. The Department of Health has mandated continued testing for all residents that remain negative – at a minimum 2 tests for a baseline within 3-7 days of each other followed by weekly testing- we have completed the first round and second round of testing and are now completing weekly testing of all residents, we thank our residents for their patience and bravery through this difficult time. As per the Governors directive the facility began testing all employees – the baseline testing for employees was completed and we are now continuing with weekly testing of all our employees. In transparency the facility currently has 28 Residents in the facility that are positive for COVID-19, 87 residents pending results and unfortunately, we suffered with the loss of 20 Residents to the Covid-19 virus. We are happy to announce that we have had over 70 residents successfully recover from COVID-19. We currently have 4 employees that are out of work due to being COVID positive. We will continue to track these numbers and inform you of the changes as they occur. We ask that everyone is being vigilant with PPE & mask usage and we continuously encourage safe social distancing.
We know how hard it is, especially during this pandemic to not be able to visit and see your loved ones. Any family that would like to arrange for a facetime phone call can either contact the social services department of leave a voice mail at 973-483-6800×117.
