Dear Family Members,
With the holiday season approaching, Crofton Care & Rehabilitation Center would like to share our policy regarding resident’s leave of absence (LOA) from the facility.
As I am sure everyone is aware, the State of Maryland and Anne Arundel County are seeing a concerning increase of COVID-19 cases. Family gatherings have been identified as one of the top “super spreader events.”
Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our residents, staff, and families. Based on the guidance we have received from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Maryland Health Department; we will not be allowing residents to leave the facility (LOA) for non-medical appointments.
We recognize and understand how disappointing this will be for everyone but know we are concerned for your loved one. In order to protect our residents, if anyone decides to remove their loved one from the building for a non-medical event, this will be considered a discharge and the resident will not be allowed to return to the facility without a 14-day quarantine. In an effort to provide much needed emotional support and to allow for our residents to see families during this time, accommodations for increased virtual calls will be available.
