Five Questions to Ask About Visiting Nursing Homes - #1

What is the nursing home doing to help make it safe for visitors to come back?

 

Has the facility met the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
recommendations for allowing visitors? For example:


• Has it gone at least 28 days without a new COVID-19 case?
• Are cases declining in the surrounding community?
• Have all residents and staff been tested for COVID-19?
• Does it have enough staff?
• Are there adequate supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning
and disinfecting products?
• Are there plans to permit outdoor visits as a transitional step, like some states have
allowed?
