Abstract / Description

Nursing homes have been severely impacted by COVID-19, with high rates of infection, morbidity, and mortality. Visiting restrictions made since the start of the pandemic have had a significant impact on residents and visitors including family, loved ones, friends, guardians and staff. The Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) have collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to safely issue and expand visitations for nursing homes. With vaccinations rolling out fast and millions getting vaccinated, it paves the way for nursing home visitations. A survey was created and distributed to residents about their experiences and mental health during the restrictions. Seven out of ten responded to being happier and social since the visitation restriction was lifted.
