(FORT FRANCES, ON) – Rainycrest long term care is, in a nutshell, a home for the aged. Some of the most vulnerable people that healthcare workers are tasked with taking care of.
When our loved ones become residents in one of these seniors’ homes, we trust and expect their well-being to come above all else.
Sources indicate that an employee of Rainycrest travelled overseas and upon return to Fort Frances, went straight back to work. No self-isolation.
A few hours had passed while the employee was there before staff asked questions about why they were there and then was ultimately sent home. She is now on self-isolation.
Healthcare staff must take the self-isolation serious, above the rest of the population, The purpose of self-isolation is to attempt to “flatten the curve” of infection rates regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. The point of this is to spread the infected population over a greater distance of time, as to not overwhelm the healthcare system.
Please, if you travel, self-isolate upon your return for 14 days.
