The information below is Pasadena Care Center regular weekly update to help ensure residents, family, team members and the community are kept up to date on our current COVID-19 status.
First off all I would like to thank all of our family members, friends & others that have entrusted us to take care of their loved one.
At this time facility has A cumulative number of 1 positive cases of staff that has been tested. 2 residents have been tested to be positive . We have implemented the proper infection control practices of the facility such as close monitoring of our resident for any signs and symptoms that would arise. COVID testing is done on a twice a week basis for all staff and residents to closely monitor the occurrence of covid 19 in our facility. At this time indoor/in-room visitation are not allowed, outdoor visitation are allowed so long as visitor is fully vaccinated and tested negative for covid, As was stated in the updated guidance that at this time Pasadena Public Health is requiring all visitors to have proof of a negative test regardless of vaccination status and we require that all visitors show a negative covid 19 test results, if PCR test is done, it must be within 72 hours, if a rapid test is done it must be within 48 hours.
With that being said, I would like to address families that would like to bring small children to the center to visit a loved one, since no vaccines are given to children under the age of 5 we also will not be able to accommodate children under the age of 5 thereby no children will be allowed in the facility unless they are over the age of 5 and then will be tested just like the adults.
Effective August 13, 2021
When visiting Pasadena Care Center, as part of our updated screening process as required by CDPH’s State Order, visitors must either, verify that they are fully vaccinated or for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors, verify documentation of a negative COVID-19 test in addition to answering screening questions.
Fully vaccinated – Forms of verification include an original CDC vaccine card or a digital scan or photo of it; or evidence of electronic immunization record form with the vaccination site; or California’s personal digital COVID-19 vaccine record QR code.
Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated – Visitors are eligible for indoor visits only if they can show documentation of a negative COVID-19 test where the specimen collection occurred within 72 hours before each visit and for which the test results are available at the time of entry to the facility. Visitors may use either PCR testing or antigen testing. For the nearest testing locations, visit:
Visitors must show proof of vaccination; unvaccinated/partially vaccinated individuals must have negative test, starting Aug. 11
CDPH allows for only one exemption to the order: visitors to a patient in critical condition, when death may be imminent.
Pasadena Care Center is committed to the safety and comfort of residents, family members and friends, and the broader community, and believes that family and friends play a critical role in our residents’ emotional and physical well-being. But, because of the significant risk posed by COVID-19 and the variants, our obligation is to ensure we follow federal, state, and county public health guidelines and keep you connected with your loved ones during these challenging times.
May refer to the Public Health Order link below:
At this time, Pasadena Care Center is not releasing medical records to discharged residents or their legal representatives in person due to the current COVID-19 pandemic Public Health Emergency. However, we do offer other options for obtaining medical records.
Discharged residents may request a copy of their medical records verbally and/or by completing and submitting an Authorization for Release of Personal Health Information form.
You can download and complete the authorization form from our website to submit your medical record request by fax, email or mail. A Medical Records representative can also email you a form to compete, fax, email or mail back to the Center.
Verification of identity may be required. Acceptable forms of identification include driver’s license, state-issued ID, or a valid, current passport.
If you are requesting for copies of medical records, standardized copying charges will be applied in addition to any postal charges or CD ROM charges. Records will only be released via mail or picked up in person with an advanced appointment.
The Medical Records Department’s hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The department is closed on weekends and major holidays. Please direct your inquiries to the Med Rec department for status updates or the Center Administrator.
Due to the current PHE, CMS modified the requirement at 42 CFR §483.10(g)(2)(ii) to allow LTC facilities 10 working days to provide a resident’s record rather than the standard two working days. If the requested information is located off-site or if the authorization form is not properly filled out, additional time may be required to process your request.
If you are requesting copies for someone other than yourself, you will need to provide legal documentation that verifies legal guardianship, power of attorney, executorships or next-of-kin relationship to a decedent.
