Venta Care Centre thanks you all for your support and collaboration during this facility outbreak.
As of today, Venta Care Centre has a total of four (4) active COVID-19 positive staff members and 19 who have recovered and returned to work. We continue to remain fully staffed.
Today we were informed that one Resident has tested positive for COVID-19. All families and Residents on the affected unit have been notified. Resident’s have been placed on appropriate precautions, and all measures to mitigate potential spread.
We have PCR swabbed all Residents and staff today and expect results in the next few days. The Resident’s Primary Contact will be notified by phone if their loved one is COVID-19 positive. If you have not received a call from us, your loved one is negative.
Please do not call the nursing stations for an update, a nursing manager will provide updates to families accordingly.
Given the current situation, the facility in collaboration with our Residents and families,
are temporarily limiting visitations onsite to Essential Visitors Only. Virtual visitation options via FaceTime and Skype or telephone remain open to you seven (7) days a week. Please contact the Recreation Department at 780-377-4412 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a day and time.
We are receiving ongoing clinical guidance through Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services, and our Medical Director.
Please continue to use discretion when calling the nursing units as our team continues to provide quality care to your loved ones.
We are committed to full transparency and will keep you informed of any changes.
