Q. What is the current status of COVID in the building? : We are happy to report that most of our residents who were diagnosed with the virus have recovered. Recovery is based on the resident having two negative tests in a row. We have not had any new cases of the virus in staff or residents in over 3 weeks. We continue with restrictions on visitation and access to the building but hope to be able to restart visits (with limitations) soon. The CDC has put out guidance on some reopening measures but the NYS Dept of Health has yet to issue guidance. Thank you for all the well wishers and appreciation that has been shown to our employees. It keeps us going!
Q. Update on Facility.: First and foremost, we want to acknowledge that this has certainly been a trying time for all parties involved. We are forever grateful to our employees at Hudson Park for their tireless dedication to ensuring optimal resident health and overall well being before and during the pandemic. There is a selflessness and sensibility not found anywhere else except by those who care for the most vulnerable people. It is with the combined effort of the nursing, social work, housekeeping, dietary, maintenance, and administrative departments at Hudson Park that our residents continue to remain healthy with a smile on their faces amidst the worst healthcare crisis to face our country. We also want to extend our deepest gratitude to the families of our residents who have sacrificed visits with their loved ones to protect the health and safety of not only their loved ones, but also all other residents in our nursing home
