COVID 19 News

As the impact of COVID-19 is now something we are learning to live with, it has had a huge impact on how we go about our day to day lives.  This is especially relevant for our residents and the staff who care for them here at Murray Haven. With restrictions easing we still need to be mindful of our actions as our residents health and safety is our greatest priority.

Visitors are still welcome, however all visits must be in the residents room or outside,  all activities for the residents are continuing as normal.  We are still having the doctor visit each Tuesday and are conducting telehealth sessions where necessary for other appointments. The physiotherapist and podiatrist are also still attending to provide care for residents.

All visitors and contractors are required to take a RAT test prior to entering the facility, and we ask anyone with flu like symptoms to visit at a later date. The patience and understanding of our families and friends has been nothing short of amazing. This support is appreciated.

Other procedures implemented include:

  • Double Covid-19 vaccination and booster shots for all staff.
  • Proof of Covid-19 and flu shots for all contractors who need to be on site.
  • Restricting who is on site.
  • Temperature checks for all people entering the site.
  • Completion of a questionnaire for everyone entering (excluding staff).
  • Ensuring that no-one who is displaying any symptoms of cold or flu is on location.
  • Regular RAT testing for all staff.

We are mindful that we are approaching flu season and our primary concern is for resident welfare, but we also recognise the need for social contact with families and the benefits that this provides for both the resident and family member.

If you have specific concerns these can be sent to admin@murrayhavenhomes.com.au and we will get back to you.
