Hello from Nursing!
We are enjoying the Summer months and all the fresh air, activities, and garden fresh foods! Looking ahead into the next couple months as seasons change and school is back in session, we want to remind everyone about the importance of keeping out elderly residents protected from infection. Please be sure to reschedule your visit if you are sick or been exposed to an infection.
We will start giving flu vaccine to staff and residents the first weeks in October. We are attaching a consent form. If it is convenient to print, sign, and send this consent back rather than stop in, please click the link below. Our address is 500 Pinehaven Dr. Monticello, IA 52310 or you may fax to 319-465-3204 attention Kelly. We will also have them available in the facility to sign when you are visiting. We need a consent for all residents from their POA before October 1st even if they will not be receiving the vaccine. Thank you for your cooperation!
Finally, please remember not to bring any medications into the facility. This includes cough drops, medicated lotions, and eye drops. We are required to have all medications come from our pharmacies and the nurse needs to administer them. If you have any questions, please see your nurse or myself.
Kelly Fleming, RN, DON
