Asymptomatic Blanket Testing.
As you are no doubt already aware the Government announced that everyone in a care home (residents & staff) would be provided with a test.
These tests have now arrived (after a bit of a hiccup) and our Super Testing Team – Debs & Lucy have sprung into action!
The tests need to be taken over a three day period and this started yesterday morning – Debs & Lucy were in at 06:00am and continued to undertake an astonishing amount of tests by the time the courier collected the tests at 16:00. They managed to get half of the people tested in one day! – so we are well on schedule thanks to all their efforts.
The process isn’t just about conducting the test, each test has to be recorded on paper and then registered online but Debs & Lucy worked out the process and all has gone to plan.
Please join me in thanking Debs& Lucy for all their efforts – not only on this testing process but for the tireless work they have done from the outset.
Finally thank you to all the staff as well – it is due to their professionalism and compassion that we remain free of symptoms at this time.
