COVID-19 and Care Centers – A Deadly Mix

Two significant outbreaks of COVID-19 at 2 Redding area nursing care centers demonstrate the necessity of extra precautions in long-term care facilities. Those in charge of these care centers need to go the extra mile to take care of your loved ones. The local devastation our community has experienced underscores what happens when care centers do not take additional extra precautions.

Outbreaks at Windsor Care Center and Vistas Assisted Living

County public health officials confirm 17 residents died due to a COVID-19 outbreak at Windsor Care Center in Redding, CA. Additionally, 63 residents and 24 staffers tested positive for the illness at least once. Meanwhile, 20 residents and 15 staff members tested contracted COVID-19 at the Vistas Assisted Living and Memory Care facility. With the right planning and care, these outbreaks and tragic losses may have been prevented.

CDC Guidelines

Noting the significant risk for nursing home patients, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has outlined a series of special requirements, steps, and best practices for these care facilities. Following CDC guidelines should help nursing home staff prevent these deadly coronavirus outbreaks from happening.

The CDC makes clear that these kinds of outbreaks are preventable,” says our very own Attorney Gary Haslerud of Haslerud Law Office, “as long as the facility follows the recommended guidelines.”
