Open and COVID-free
COVID-19 prevention has a part of our daily lives for over a year, now and finally vaccines are being administered. The Gardens at Park Balboa residents and associates were among the first groups to have access to a COVID-19 vaccine.
Both assisted living and Safe Haven family members (or friends) are allowed to take their loved ones off the property for any reason, with no quarantine upon the resident's return. For the safety of our residents and staff, I'm making a strong request that you continue to follow all the protocols we've become accustomed to when out in public; avoid large gatherings, wear masks and maintain social distancing.
In my update of June 19 of this year, I had mentioned that the Department of Social Services, which oversees us, is enforcing a section of Title 22 that requires all over the counter (OTC) medications classified as PRN (medications taken “as needed”) to be labeled with a doctor's order. Below, you'll find the section as found in Title 22: Department of Social Services Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) Title 22 Section 87465(e).For every prescription and nonprescription PRN medication for which the licensee provides assistance there shall be a signed, dated written order from a physician, on a prescription blank, maintained in the resident's file, and a label on the medication. Both the physician's order and the label shall contain at least all of the following information.
