COVID-19 Tracking Tool

Current QLS Visitation Protocol

Latest Family Update Letter

QLS has been following guidance on COVID-19 for well over a year to keep our residents and staff as safe as possible. We know that vaccines help prevent serious illness from COVID. This is why we have been educating our employees about the benefits of the vaccine for months and strongly encouraging staff to get the vaccine – even if they remain against it. We will continue this effort. We have set up many vaccine clinics in our homes to make getting the vaccine as convenient as possible. 

We are not requiring our staff to get the vaccine right now, but we’ve increased our testing for our unvaccinated staff. Our approach may change depending on the final details of the White House announcement Wednesday, August 18th which requires nursing homes to vaccinate their staff against COVID-19. We await detailed guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Quality Life Services is committed to transparency and open communication with family members and also with the greater communities that we serve. Our tracking tool provides a current count of residents and staff who have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and remain within the presumed period of contagiousness. Our staff numbers include third party companies that are involved in the direct care of our residents, including therapy and agency staffing.

 You may note that our counts differ from the total number of confirmed cases shared on the PA Department of Health website. Our Test Tracking Tool provides a current count of those residents and staff deemed to be contagious. The Department of Health website posts a cumulative case count starting from the onset of the pandemic earlier this year.

 We encourage you to visit the websites for up-to-date information.

Beginning the week of January 25, 2021, the Test Tracking Tool will be updated weekly instead of daily. Please check back every Monday for updated information.
