COVID-19

Shady Lane has been extremely proactive to ensure that we would be prepared to support anyone impacted by the virus. We have communicated with our staff to reinforce safety protocols and continue to follow each of them and remain focused on the safety of our staff and residents. We have kept a close eye on our stock of critical supplies, such as personal protective equipment, which is vital to keeping our staff and residents safe when in contact with someone affected by the virus. We have also created a separate unit, if needed, with designated staff to care for any residents that would be diagnosed with COVID-19. The health and safety of our staff and residents are our top priorities. We are committed to evaluating our own policies and making necessary adjustments to maximize their safety. 

We following best practice guidelines for infection prevention as published by the CDC and CMS, both of which currently states that facilities should restrict visitation of all visitors and non-essential health care personnel, except for certain compassionate care situations, such as an end-of-life situation. Residents are also not allowed to leave the campus, unless for an essential appointment or reason. These guidelines drive the decisions made for care providers like us, which are intended to help protect the safety and well-being of those we are entrusted to provide care.

We encourage everyone to take the necessary precautions recommended by the CDC and public health officials to prevent the spread of this pandemic. As always, our focus remains on providing our residents with exceptional services.

 

Indoor Visits

We now have a safe process for indoor visitation using guidelines from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). To reserve a time slot for an indoor visit, click on the Sign-Up button. 

You will need to park on S. 24th Street and follow the path to the indoor visit entrance. There will be a bright green flag near the entrance. Please wait there until we let you in. All visitors will be screened for any COVID-19 symptoms and not be allowed to visit if you have any symptoms. Visits will be 15 minutes long and only 2 visitors. To allow as many residents as possible to receive visitors, initially, residents will only be allowed ONE visit per month due to limited time slots and staffing. We ask that visitors be at least 12 years of age and no pets will be allowed. 

Please educate yourself with the documents: Frequently Asked Questions, COVID-19 Screen/Attestation for Visitors, and the Post Visitation Self Screen. At your visit, you will need to agree to follow the outlined rules and accept that there is some COVID-19 risk even in these protected situations. If you are unable to follow these guidelines your visit will be discontinued and we will decline future visits.

At the visit, you will need to read a description of the visit requirements, agree to follow those instructions, and accept that there is some COVID-19 risk even in these protected situations.
