Health and rehab center at the Glenview in Naples, FL


Visitation Policy Statement

Visitation is allowed for all residents of Premier Place as permitted under the local, state, and federal regulations. While previously acceptable during the Public Health Emergency, the health center no longer limits the frequency and length of visits for residents, the number of visitors, and no longer requires advance scheduling of  visits.


Policy Interpretation and Implementation

  1. In order to minimize the risk to other residents, visitation will be conducted based on a residents’ needs as well as the health center’s structure such as in resident rooms, dedicated visitation spaces, and outdoor space availability.
  2. The length of visits and the number of visitors is not restricted and advanced scheduling of visits is no longer required.
  3. Visitation should be person-centered, considering the residents’ physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, and support their quality of life. Consensual physical contact is permitted between resident and visitor.
  4. Regardless of how visits are conducted, continue to follow the core principles and best practices related to infection control.
  5. The Director of Nursing/Infection Preventionist or designee is responsible for staff adherence to visitation policies and procedures.
  6. During indoor visitation, limit visitor movement in the health center. Visitors should not walk around different halls of the health center. They should go directly to the resident’s room or designated visitation area(s).
  7. Residents who are on transmission-based precautions (TBP) or quarantine can still receive visitors. In these cases, visits should occur in the resident’s room and the resident should wear a well-fitting facemask (if tolerated). Before visiting residents, who are on transmission-based precautions or quarantine, visitors should be made aware of the potential risk of visiting and precautions necessary in order to visit the resident. Visitors should adhere to the core principles of infection prevention.
  8. Residents who are on enhanced barrier precautions (EBPs) can still receive visitors. EBPs are used as an infection prevention and control intervention to reduce the spread of multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) to residents.  The use of EBPs does not impose limitations on visitation, group activities, or room restrictions for residents.
  9. The Community may offer well-fitting facemasks or other appropriate PPE as needed.
