Visitor Restrictions Update: We’re continuing to ease some of the visitor restrictions, while ensuring COVID-Safe standards are in place. Learn more.

Thank you for trusting Atrium Health with your loved one’s healthcare needs. Their safety remains our number one priority. We are doing all we can to protect our patients and teammates from the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including following all applicable Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are testing residents if any COVID-19 symptoms are exhibited, such as fever, cough, tightness in chest, loss of taste or smell, or other respiratory symptoms. If a resident tests positive, they are moved to a designated facility set up specifically to care for COVID-positive patients who require skilled nursing care, keeping them isolated to prevent the virus from spreading to our vulnerable populations.

We’ve also taken many additional measures to help prevent potential spread, including:

  • Restricting all visitors
  • Establishing separate entrances
  • Screening anyone who enters the facility – including our teammates prior to starting their shifts – at the door, including temperature checks
  • Patients and residents are screened at least every shift
  • Teammates are wearing masks throughout their shifts
  • Limiting teammates from working in multiple areas of the building, to prevent cross contamination
  • Suspended activities and communal dining
  • Relocating residents who test positive for COVID-19 to a COVID-19 response site to provide these residents with the care needed to help them recover from COVID-19 while keeping them isolated to prevent the virus from spreading to our vulnerable populations.

The figures for Huntersville Oaks include patients who have been relocated to Huntersville Oaks from across our community (including the Atrium Health skilled nursing facilities listed above) as part of a strategic decision to provide the care needed for patients with COVID-19 while keeping them isolated from the rest of the population to avoid spread of the infection. 

Huntersville Oaks has advanced medical capabilities and, as such, has been identified as a COVID-19 response site. Patients in our community requiring skilled nursing facility-level treatment who have tested positive for COVID-19, including those in assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, individual homes, or hospitals, are being relocated to Huntersville Oaks. We have a separate wing of the building dedicated to caring for these patients. Huntersville Oaks is one of just a few skilled nursing facilities in the state capable of caring for patients with COVID-19. We are doing all we can to keep the virus from spreading among vulnerable populations by isolating those who have it and providing the care needed to help those patients recover.
