Healthcare & Nursing Homes

March 12, 2020 Wellstar statement re: facility visitation

Nursing Home Guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS): “CMS will be issuing new guidance, directing nursing homes to temporarily restrict all visitors and nonessential personnel with a few exceptions such as end-of-life situations. We fully appreciate that this measure represents a severe trial for residents of nursing homes and those who love them, but we are doing what we must to protect our vulnerable elderly. Needless to say, the moment we believe these restrictions can be relaxed, we will do so.”

We would encourage all to contact the facility where your loved one may be to learn their rapidly evolving protocols. In our own personal experience, the situation changed overnight as to being able to visit with family.
