While Riverside Health Care continues its recruitment efforts for a new administrator at Rainycrest, we have made arrangements with Extendicare Assist for an acting administrator at the home.
Brad Hall and Cathi Allison of Extendicare Assist will serve as administrator at Rainycrest on a rotational basis.
Kim Redeker (dietary consultant) and Rosemary Lindau (programs consultant) from Extendicare Assist also are providing added support at this time.
We would like to extend our appreciation to all Riverside staff for their dedication and tireless commitment to providing quality care for the residents, patients, and clients we serve.
We also would like to extend appreciation to those employees who stepped into interim roles for their leadership during this initial transition period.
Through our partnership with Extendicare Assist, we are preparing to adopt select policies to further enhance resident care and compliance.
The Point Click Care project team at Rainycrest has begun preparations for Phase II–the implementation of Point of Care (POC).
POC will simplify and streamline documentation for our health-care aides through the utilization of wirelessly-connected tablets.
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care recently approved an extension of our compliance dates to Jan. 15, 2019, as recommended by Extendicare Assist.
While we recognize the continued pressure the closure to admissions at Rainycrest is placing on patients, residents, staff, partners, and the community, we remain focused on ensuring we meet all requirements to open the home as soon as is appropriate.
