It was very exciting and created a sense of relief for staff, residents, and residents’ families.  It showed that we were getting one step closer to “normal”. We are able to allow more visits, dine together, have groups together, and go on outings with their loved ones. We are still working cautiously and diligently in keeping COVID-19 out of our facility. We continue to educate our staff, residents, and residents’ families of the importance of receiving one of the COVID-19 vaccines available.— Brookestone Acres, Columbus

Brookside Rehabilitation Center, Lincoln

Brookside Rehabilitation Center, Lincoln have over 70% of their staff vaccinated.

Congratulations!!

The staff did not want to be part of a “clinical trial” and were uneasy about getting the vaccination. We had the first round of Pfizer and less than 50% of staff received it due to fear of side effects. Our infection Preventionist kept educating them on side effects and benefits of the vaccination, so our second round a lot more staff had signed up. We had a Johnson and Johnson clinic and even more staff got the vaccination. We’ve had 1 staff member positive with Covid in the last few months and she was not vaccinated. The rates are way down in our facility and it feels great.— Brookside Rehabilitation Center, Lincoln

Christian Homes Care Community, Holdrege 

Christian Homes Care Community, Holdrege have over 70% of their staff vaccinated.

Congratulations!!

“The residents actually brought the energy to the process of vaccination. To see their faces light up and to see hope in their eyes after these long months of Covid, was inspiring. CHCC has 70% of the staff who have been vaccinated. The biggest barrier was all the misinformation out there on the internet, face book, and other media sources. People were afraid. So about half of the staff went first and only had mild to no side effects from dose one or dose two. This was helpful so a few more people signed up to take the vaccine. Residents are excited but starting to get frustrated as the guidance has not changed for them. So we are still excited to have that extra layer of protection, but really wanting to see the new guidance and what does it really mean to be vaccinated.“  — Christian Homes Care Community, Holdrege

Dunklau Gardens, Fremont

Dunklau Gardens have over 70% of their staff vaccinated.

Congratulations!!

“Initiated vaccinations for staff through our parent Health System, Methodist Fremont Health in January 2021. We provided ALOT of vaccine information week to week to staff and focused on specific issues that we heard from staff when rounding with them as they may have been identified as not having signed up as yet for the vaccine. We also offered one on one conversations with our infectious disease physician if they wished. We don’t know if any staff opted to access this resource. Our DON even accompanied a few staff members during their vaccination to support any fears they might have had and/or escorted them to another Health System vaccination clinic to receive their vaccine. Some we just couldn’t change their minds at this point, but will continue to encourage and push out additional information as the outcomes of vaccination become more available and known. We have seen a dramatic decrease in potential positives or confirmed positives in both staff and residents since vaccinations have been completed, which is so encouraging. Our last positive resident and staff was well over a month ago and the facility has been in GREEN ever since. We have been able to expand visitation because of this and have continued confidence in the safety and protection of our residents and staff with increasing community vaccination efforts, which we also participate in covering these vaccination clinics so they can support the ongoing effort of community vaccination.” — Dunklau Gardens

Maple Crest Health Center, Omaha

Maple Crest Health Center have over 70% of their staff vaccinated.

Congratulations!!

“We had a lot of hesitation with the first and second clinics due to misinformation on social media platforms. By the time the third clinic rolled out, more staff felt comfortable getting it since those that initially got it did not develop complications. We also have quite a few staff that refused it due to religious preferences so that greatly impacted our numbers. Majority of those not yet vaccinated still cling to some social media theories on why they shouldn’t get it  but we are trying to win them one by one. We started at 32% and are sitting at 78% today. That’s progress we are proud of.” — Maple Crest Health Center, Omaha
