As Illinois Nursing Homes Allow for Outdoor Visitors, Family Members Can Look Out for Signs of Distress

COVID-19 is still spreading in Illinois with officials from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) reporting 715 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, June 24, while deaths increased by 64. That brings the total cases in Illinois to 138,540, including 6,770 deaths, in 101 Illinois counties. Infections at long-term care facilities comprise nearly 16% of the state’s total cases, but nursing home residents who have died from the virus make up more than 55% of the state’s fatalities. IDPH has started to require testing of residents and staff members at those facilities, and recently announced new measures which allow for nursing home visitors to meet with residents and loved ones under strict precautions.

In a released statement by IDPH on June 18, 2020, Illinois long-term care facilities may begin to allow outdoor visitation for residents when certain conditions are met. Visits to Illinois nursing homes have been restricted since mid-March.

The facility explained to Petty that her mother was fine and there were relatively few cases of COVID-19 within the facility. However, just three days after this initial phone call, Petty’s mother was diagnosed with COVID-19 and subsequently died, the article continues that Petty did not learn of the true extent of the outbreak in the nursing home until after her mother had passed away. Following similar issues regarding the lack of communication between the facility and the public, the facility’s new administrator sent a letter to families apologizing for the communication issues and declared such problems unacceptable.
