Tranquil Shores Treatment Center Preparedness for COVID-19
At Tranquil Shores, we take the health and safety of our clients, families, visitors, and staff very seriously.
As the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is rapidly evolving, we want to keep others as informed as possible, by sending timely and relevant information regarding our approach to addressing our preparedness and response. As updates about the coronavirus are changing hour by hour, our leadership team is closely monitoring anything being issued by the CDC, local health systems, and the county health department, in order to respond appropriately and as advised.
Our staff is taking any and all steps to reduce environmental risk. All of our staff is well-trained in infection-control and prevention practices as well as disinfection routines and guidelines. All staff has been instructed to be in strict compliance with washing/sanitizing hands thoroughly and often. All clients have been given specific fact sheets on the importance of handwashing/sanitization and infection control. The staff has increased the sanitization of equipment and common areas.
As a precautionary measure our Admissions Department is screening potential clients for possible exposure and symptoms. This is being done so not to jeopardize the well-being of our current clients and anyone seeking admissions.
Tranquil Shores has implemented a Visitation Screening Tool in accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to make sure that our facility stays as safe as possible. Every client and visitor will be required to fill out this questionnaire prior to a stay or visit to our facility.
Anyone presenting with any flu-like symptoms will be immediately sent for screening. All staff has been informed that they need to stay healthy and to stay home if they present with any symptoms that could be flu-related.
We will continue to receive guidance from the CDC, the WHO, The State and local agencies, and based on this guidance we feel confident that our facility continues to be safe.
