Dear Fairport Baptist Homes’ Skilled Nursing Facility Family Members:

We have received new regulations from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) that are now consistent with the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

When a new case of COVID-19 among residents or staff is identified, FBH will immediately begin outbreak testing and suspend all visitation (except that required under federal disability rights law), until at least one round of facility-wide testing is completed.

  • If the first round of outbreak testing reveals no additional COVID-19 cases in other areas of the facility, then visitation can resume for residents in households with no COVID-19 cases.
  • If the first round of outbreak testing reveals two more COVID-19 cases in the same household as the original case, but not in other households, visitation can resume for residents in the household with no COVID-19 cases.
  • If the first round of outbreak testing reveals one or more additional COVID-19 cases in other areas of the facility, then FBH will suspend visitation for all residents, until the facility meets the criteria to discontinue outbreak testing.

FBH will continue to adhere to our established visitation policy dated March 1, 2021.   Visitation was paused on March 24th due to a positive case.  Resident testing began immediately and we are happy to say that all results were negative.  Visitation will resume today.  Please contact our reception desk, 585-377-0350, between the hours of 8:00am to 8:00pm to schedule a visit.

The Holidays at Fairport Baptist Homes’ Skilled Nursing Facility

As we approach the holiday season, we recognize that it will look very different for all of us, especially your loved ones. To make this season as bright as possible for your loved ones, we have a few different ways to help.

  1. The Fairport Baptist Homes’ Service Board has teamed up with our Activities Department to provide photo album gifts for each of our Long Term Care residents. However, we need your help by providing photos of your loved one. If you decide to participate, please get the pictures to us through one of the options below, no later than December 18th. Your loved ones will receive their completed photo album on Christmas morning.

Please choose one of the following way to get the pictures to us:

-Print out twenty, 4×6 photos, write the name of the resident they belong to and mail them to Jill Sypnier at Fairport Baptist Homes, 4646 Nine Mile Point Road, Fairport, NY 14450.

-Print out twenty, 4×6 photos, write the name of the resident they belong to and drop them off to our front door screener to the attention of Jill Sypnier.

-Email twenty photos, with the name of the resident they belong to, directly to Jill at jsypnier@fbhcm.org

If your loved one would enjoy something other than a photo album with your provided pictures, or you would like to add another special gift, please feel free to drop the gift off at our front door, labeled with your loved one’s name, to the attention of Jill Sypnier and she will make sure they receive it on Christmas morning.

  1. In years past, we have had a gift giving tree in our lobby with a wish list of items from our residents that staff and visitors were able to sign up to purchase those items on the wish list. This year, we have a Virtual Gift Giving Tree! You can follow the link and sign up to purchase a specific gift that a resident has requested.

Visit, https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d49aaab22a2fbc43-virtual

Once you sign up, purchase the item you have signed up for, leave it unwrapped, and drop it off at our front door, no later than Sunday, December 20th, attention Jill Sypnier.

  1. We have a wish list on Amazon, for anyone who would like to purchase gifts for our residents. The list contains items that would be most helpful to our residents. Please visit: https://tinyurl.com/fbhwishlist

 

Thank you, in advance, for helping to make this season a joyful as possible for your loved ones and the other residents at Fairport Baptist Homes. We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.

Dear Fairport Baptist Homes Skilled Nursing Home Family Members,

 

As the COVID pandemic continues and nursing homes are bound to the New York State directive of being COVID-free for 28 days before visitation can occur, we recognize the frustration that this has brought to our families.  We believe that our residents thrive emotionally and physically through engagement with their loved ones.

 

While we need to adhere to the requirements set forth by the New York State Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we recognize the importance of advocacy at the family member level as well as the nursing home association level as being the most effective way to cause change.  We are asking for your help to advocate with us for reopening visitation under thoughtful guidance.

 

To make your voice heard, please click on one or all of the underlined names: New York State Senator, Rich Funke, Assembly Member (district 135), Mark Johns, New York State Health Commissioner, Dr. Howard Zucker and New York State Governor, Andrew M. Cuomo  can also be reached at 518.474.8390 or by using the online form, once you click on his name.

 

As always if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Greg Powers, Administrator of the Skilled Nursing Facility, 585.388.2320, gpowers@fbhcm.org.

 

Fairport Baptist Homes continues to recognize that the health and safety of our residents, staff and community members is of the utmost importance.

 

We appreciate your continued support and patience during these challenging times.

 

Sincerely,

Thomas H. Poelma

As of today, we have no confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus in our facility.  We continue to follow the procedures as directed by the NYS Department of Health and the CDC.   We realize that this has been a difficult transition for our residents and their families.  We thank you for your support during this challenging time.  Staff have been amazing and the teamwork has been great.  The Facebook page and our ability to live stream have hopefully helped during this time of separation.  We will do our best to help maintain that connection with your loved ones.

Information and Policy as of March 11, 2020

We continue to work closely with the NYS Department of Health to implement any new guidelines to help protect our residents and staff. We continue to promote and educate our residents and staff on the CDC’s recommendations on how to prevent illnesses, including COVID-19.

To limit the spread of all respiratory illnesses, CDC recommends the following actions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. If you use a tissue, throw it in the trash, then wash/disinfect your hands after throwing tissue away.
  • Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms we ask that you please refrain from visiting:

  • fever
  • coughing
  • shortness of breath
  • cold-like symptoms

We are committed to the health and safety of our residents, families and staff and appreciate your understanding at this time. We will provide updates as new information becomes available.
