Update April 25th

Hello Family and Friends of St. Ann’s,

We would like to provide you with an update on some of the issues we have been trying to address recently:

*We are in the process of collecting an updated list of email address for primary contacts. We hope this will allow us to communicate effectively with family or primary contacts about updates and important information. For a specific update of your loved one you will still be contacted by phone, or please call us if you have concerns.

* Residents are able to get current updates by looking on the St. Ann’s channel (channel 3), or for weekly updates on their phone by *9. The daily menu is still the same, please press *8 on your phone.

* We have set up Face Time and Skype to help families connect. Please call 218-727-8831 to set up a time. We have volunteers and staff that are available to help. We will work with you to find a time that works for everyone.

*If you would like to send you loved one groceries or supplies, you can drop off at the front entryway and we will deliver from there. It is best if you call and let us know when you arrive so we can have a cart available. Also, please clearly label with residents name and room number.

*We are currently delivering the residents mail directly by hanging their mail and newspapers in a bag outside their door.

Thank you

The St. Ann’s Team

Dear Family and Friends of St. Ann’s,

Again, we’d like to thank you for all the support and outreach we’ve been receiving. The past several weeks our St. Ann’s employees and volunteers from the community have been doing a incredible job!

Currently, we are still in battle mode against the virus, and focused every day on defeating it. We are in daily contact with local and state officials as well as medical personnel.

Thank you!

To Our Family Members

Many of you already know that our Family here at St. Ann’s has been dramatically impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic. To date we have had 3 residents pass away at the hospital, and an additional 17 residents have tested positive. Our hearts are greatly saddened by this news, and our deepest sympathies go out to their families.

We are waiting for other pending test results. Of the 17 positive cases 4 were hospitalized Friday night.  The health and government officials have not yet ascertained how the virus got into the building, and are working to stop additional spread to our residents and staff.

We are working with the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, St. Louis County Public Health, Advanced Health Institute, and infection control specialists, experts and staff from local hospitals.

We will leave no stone unturned, and do everything in our power to fight against this virus. Upon finding out that one of our residents tested positive, we immediately went into action with the Infection Specialists of our area and our Elder Care team. We started testing immediately, put confirmed case infection control protocols in place, and the Minnesota Department of Health and the CDC helped us implement a plan to stop the Covid-19 spread. Additional steps that we have taken are: RN nursing staff are staying on sight throughout the night, a new infection control specialist, daily meetings with Minnesota Department of Health, and staffing from St. Luke’s and Essentia. We have received many donations of personal protective equipment

We do not currently know how the long term impacts of this virus will impact us here at St. Ann’s, but are doing everything possible to protect our residents and staff.

Our incredible staff, volunteers, and outside professionals are doing incredible work to try to keep everyone safe and cared for.

We would like to thank our community for the overwhelming support. We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important, and we are doing our best to keep in touch with family members while spending every hour of every day fighting this virus. This is a difficult time for everyone and we will continue to provide you with updates as they become available.

Thank you,

The St.Ann’s Team
