Unfortunately, we have had a Resident return a positive RAT Test on Wednesday 9th August 2023. All Residents in the same wing have also been tested and returned a negative result.
The infected resident is doing well and rest assured that we have a wonderful and diligent team who are doing their best to provide the highest level of care to them.
We stress the importance of social distancing and to comply with Bucklands policy of wearing a N95 mask at all times when in the Nursing Home. We kindly ask that a RAT Test be completed prior to entering the Nursing Home. All Staff will now RAT Test each day on arrival.
With this being said we feel it is best to postpone the August Relative Meeting being held in the Main Lounge today at 4:00pm. Yours and your loved one’s health and safety and is our main priority and given we now have a positive case we will now take measures to minimise any risk of further spread.
We will keep you informed of any updates and changes as they occur. Thank you again for your patience and cooperation.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us on (02) 4752 2500.
