Poor Handling of Covid-19 Crisis

Though Care One at Wayne was an adequate facility for my grandfather’s recovery, their handling of the Covid-19 crisis was absolutely unacceptable. Two weeks into my grandfather’s stay, they began barring visitors from entering the facility, which they did act early on, but on FaceTime calls with my grandfather it was obvious that social distancing practices were NOT taking place within the facility. The physical therapists who assisted in the FaceTime calls were within inches of his face, wearing NO masks. Who knows where employees go after work, what family members they come in contact with, and what they may be carrying. Temperature checks may be effective for symptomatic carriers, but with a long incubation period for presenting symptoms and asymptomatic transmission, it is useless. Not until the last week of March did employees become mandated to wear face masks and PPE. (Side Note: During a FaceTime call, the PT who was managing the call for my grandfather was wearing a mask but sneezed centimeters away from his face and did not bother to move away nor cover her mouth additionally.) We relentlessly brought up our concerns to the social worker, [name removed], and other staff members as cases in nursing homes and long term care facilities rose in the state. We were constantly reassured that the facility was ‘air-tight’ and taking all necessary precautions. Speaking with another employee, we were also told that there would be no new admissions of patients to further prevent bringing the virus in. When cases grew dramatically, we moved to get him discharged, but were met with resistance from the staff even though he was cleared to leave within a few days. He was in perfect health and had no reason to be there, besides his own willingness, and potentially be exposed to the Coronavirus. The additional time that he was to spend in the facility was by his own choice of extension and not necessarily recommended by the health professionals or mandatory. He simply enjoyed the friendly staff and had good insurance that would cover it. In my opinion, patients were overly comforted about the risks of contracting Covid-19 in their “safe little bubble”. As Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, ‘it only takes one ember to start a wildfire’, and one ember it did. On [date removed], our worst fears were confirmed when we received a call from Care One alerting us that there was a positive case of Covid-19. We were told that the positive patient had been brought in from the hospital days earlier with an already suspected case of the virus. Why would a long term care facility, already vulnerable, accept a symptomatic and presumed case of Coronavirus? This was entirely shocking as we were assured no new patients were being admitted from the hospital. Staff informed us that this patient was being isolated and on the opposite side of the facility that my grandpa was on and that any potential outbreak was under control. At this point, it was absolutely necessary for my grandfather to return home, even though employees had told us that they felt ‘at ease’ with the situation. During the discharge process, we asked the social worker to be informed of any outbreak arising in the 14 days following his departure to help us better monitor him and assess the level of isolation he’d need when returning home. She said she would and made note of it, but never did. We thought maybe it was a good sign until the New Jersey Department of Health released the numbers for infections and deaths at every long term care facility in the state. We were appalled to learn that Care One at Wayne had 12 cases, and as of writing this their total is 30 cases and 5 deaths, likely not including employees or those patients who were discharged amid the outbreak. It is absolutely disgusting that within the 14 days of my grandfather’s discharge he was not notified of any outbreaks to take further precautions with his health. He did receive a strange phone call, in which a staff member questioned him on his health a little over a week after his departure. He is 91 and lives with his elderly wife, who could have also been put at risk. For a healthcare facility to sweep cases under the rug and hide it from patients and family members is irresponsible and could prove fatal. This is exactly the type of behavior from these types of facilities that led the Department of Health to publish every case and death in long term care. Trying to hide and diminish infectious outbreaks to avoid negative publicity does exactly the opposite. Grocery stores, including local Trader Joe’s and ShopRite’s, have done more to notify customers of possible contact with positive employees and shoppers than Care One at Wayne, a healthcare facility did. Just to make this clear, the issue is not that Care One at Wayne contracted and had an outbreak of the virus, as no facility is immune. It was inevitable. Instead, the issue lies with informing patients and their families about possible risks to their health during a global pandemic. The 14 days following possible exposure are CRUCIAL and to go into it blind, especially at the age of 91, is reckless on part of the facility. The patients they care for are part of the most vulnerable population and the utmost diligence should be performed when caring for them. If there was exposure to a possibly fatal illness while a patient resided within the facility and they are still within the incubation period of contraction from when an outbreak or community transmission occurred, they SHOULD be notified and followed-up with.

Care One Wayne

My 90 year old father spent a few weeks at Care One Wayne. It is not perfect, but what facility is. Over all they treated my father well. The social workers and PT workers were helpful and kind.

My father's 9 night stay at Care Not

My father, 88 yrs. old, had Alzheimer's and laryngeal cancer. I dealt with the social worker at St. Mary's Hosp. in Passaic to help place my father. I asked if Care One would be able to accommodate his needs. She spoke with someone there & explained his situation, so I felt they could take care of him. But after getting there late evening the respiratory doctor told my brother & I to go home, get some rest, they know their jobs, they'll take care of him. They didn't have two important medicines he needed when we got there & I had to drive home and bring them back! He needed one-on-one care and they could not accommodate him, expected me to live there 24/7. At one point when he tried to get up during the night when I wasn't there in the beginning the nurse or aide tried to get him to go back to bed & injured the top of his hand really bad, scraped the skin off! When I requested several times to speak with [name removed], the director, she was never available. He had a trach & could choke at anytime. All they did was give him meds, check his vitals. The PT girls were very nice & helpful. The head nurse would just tell me they can't take someone off the floor to stay with him. Well, they knew his illnesses and should have just said in the beginning they couldn't accommodate him! Also, at one point I tried the suction machine and it wasn't working. "I" had to inform the nurse and she was able to fix it but that took time and if my father was choking he wouldn't have made it or would have suffered lack of oxygen and maybe passed out. If your loved one is able to be on their own it might be a nice place. If they really need to be cared for, find somewhere else. Some pluses would be the snacks they offer in the front foyer and there were some very nice people who worked there. The facility is probably like most of these nursing home/assisted living places where the bottom line is money. After 8 days in this place I requested how do we go about discharge immediately and they offered to have an aide from an agency stay that night so they could work on discharging my father with whatever they have to do for that. I reluctantly agreed but went back at 10 pm to bring clean clothes & meet the aide, and while I was helping my father with things I looked over at the aide in the chair & her eyes were closed like she was sleeping. I said, "excuse me, what if you are sleeping and my father gets up?" She said, "he has an alarm on." I felt she was useless, getting paid to sleep on the job. I was totally exhausted at that point and went home to try to get some sleep because I was bringing my dad back to my house where he could get decent proper care. No, I would not go back there.
