We remain committed to providing you updated information as regulations and protocols change.

COVID-19

A CNA on the North unit and a CNA of East 2A and East 3 at the Kline Galland Home have tested positive for COVID-19. These two positive cases were uncovered in our routine staff testing and both staff members are vaccinated.

Unfortunately, due to these positive cases at the Kline Galland Home, visitation is on hold at this time, with the exception for Compassionate Visits.

VISITATION POLICY

Please note that indoor visitation at the Kline Galland Home, with the exception of Compassionate Visits, is on hold at this time.

To schedule your Compassionate Visit at the Kline Galland Home, please contact your social worker. If you have any questions about your visit, please contact your social worker who can explain the conditions for the visitation to ensure your safety, along with the safety of residents and staff.

COVID-19: CORE INFECTION PREVENTION UPDATE

Many of our residents and clients are in the high-risk group for COVID-19 and may have medical conditions putting them at a very high risk of becoming sick, or even severely ill, from COVID-19. For the safety of your loved one and our community, visitors must adhere to core infection prevention while inside the facility. Visiting outdoors is safer and preferred over indoor visitation.

Core Infection Prevention:

  • Visitors must be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and close contact with someone with COVID-19 within previous 14 days.
  • Visitors and residents must use alcohol-based hand rub or wash hands with soap and water before and after each visit.
  • While alone in the patient/resident’s room or the designated visitation room, fully vaccinated patients/residents and their fully vaccinated visitor(s) can choose to have close contact (including touch) and to not wear source control (PPE such as masks).
  • Visitors should wear source control and physically distance from other healthcare personnel and other residents/visitors that are not part of their group at all other times while in the facility.
  • The safest approach is for everyone to maintain physical distancing and to wear source control. However, if the patient/resident is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their unvaccinated visitor(s) while both continue to wear well-fitting source control.
  • Visitors should go directly to the visiting area and directly out of the facility when the visit has ended.

Facilities must have a policy in place to manage visitation and visitor flow so that these core infection prevention principles are maintained. This may include limiting the number of visitors per resident at one time or limiting the total number of visitors in the facility at one time. The facility may schedule visits for specified length of time to help ensure all residents are able to receive visitors.

Thank you for helping us keep our community and residents safe.

We have been working to keep everyone updated on actions being taken to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the Kline Galland Home, The Summit at First Hill and our Community Based Services. We remain committed to providing you updated information as regulations and protocols change.

COVID-19

There is no new COVID-19 activity to report.

VISITATION POLICY

Masked, indoor and outdoor visitation at the Kline Galland Home is now available by appointment only, with the exception of the East 1 unit which is still being held in quarantine protocol. East 1 is able to accept Compassionate Visits, by appointment only.

Due to updated CDC guidance, we have some additional guidelines for visitation at the Kline Galland Home:

  • Visitors will be required to wear facemasks AT ALL TIMES when in the facility, including when in a private room.
  • Indoor visitation can occur in the designated visiting areas, or in a patient’s room if the patient has a private room. For patients residing in a semi-private room, visits must take place in the designated visiting areas.
  • At this time, no meals can be shared during indoor or outdoor visits.

Thank you for your understanding and adherence to these guidelines.

To schedule your visit at the Kline Galland Home, please contact your social worker, activities department, or using our online schedulerIf you have any questions about your visit, please contact your social worker who can explain the conditions for the visitation to ensure your safety, along with the safety of residents and staff.

To schedule visitation at The Summit at First Hill, please contact the Concierge. If you have questions regarding the visitation policy at The Summit at First Hill, please contact the Concierge.

You are not required to validate your vaccination status, but will be required to acknowledge your understanding of the Governor’s rule regarding the current Visitation Policy. Thank you for your adherence.

COVID-19: CORE INFECTION PREVENTION UPDATE

Many of our residents and clients are in the high-risk group for COVID-19 and may have medical conditions putting them at a very high risk of becoming sick, or even severely ill, from COVID-19. For the safety of your loved one and our community, visitors must adhere to core infection prevention while inside the facility. Visiting outdoors is safer and preferred over indoor visitation.

Core Infection Prevention:

  • Visitors must be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and close contact with someone with COVID-19 within previous 14 days.
  • Visitors and residents must use alcohol-based hand rub or wash hands with soap and water before and after each visit.
  • While alone in the patient/resident’s room or the designated visitation room, fully vaccinated patients/residents and their fully vaccinated visitor(s) can choose to have close contact (including touch) and to not wear source control (PPE such as masks).
  • Visitors should wear source control and physically distance from other healthcare personnel and other residents/visitors that are not part of their group at all other times while in the facility.
  • The safest approach is for everyone to maintain physical distancing and to wear source control. However, if the patient/resident is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their unvaccinated visitor(s) while both continue to wear well-fitting source control.
  • Visitors should go directly to the visiting area and directly out of the facility when the visit has ended.

Facilities must have a policy in place to manage visitation and visitor flow so that these core infection prevention principles are maintained. This may include limiting the number of visitors per resident at one time or limiting the total number of visitors in the facility at one time. The facility may schedule visits for specified length of time to help ensure all residents are able to receive visitors.

Thank you for helping us keep our community and residents safe.

UPDATE 08/17/21

We have been working to keep everyone updated on actions being taken to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the Kline Galland Home, The Summit at First Hill and our Community Based Services. We remain committed to providing you updated information as regulations and protocols change.

COVID-19

A resident of East 2A at the Kline Galland Home has tested positive for COVID-19. The resident tested positive twice through rapid (antigen) testing, is currently asymptomatic and is fully vaccinated. At this time the resident will reside in our Cohort Unit that is housing our patients who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Indoor visitation at The Summit at First Hill is now open, and small group activities are being scheduled at this time. The Kline Galland Home facility remains under quarantine at this time, per federal and state guidelines.

VISITATION POLICY

Please note that visitation at the Kline Galland Home, with the exception of Compassionate Visits, is on hold at this time.

For Compassionate Visits at the Kline Galland Home, please contact your social worker, who will help facilitate your visit. Our Social Services department will be happy to schedule your visit and explain the conditions for the visitation to ensure your safety, along with the safety of residents and staff. 

At The Summit at First Hill, please communicate your planned visits with the Concierge. If you have questions regarding the visitation policy at The Summit at First Hill, please contact the Concierge.

You are not required to validate your vaccination status, but will be required to acknowledge your understanding of the Governor’s rule regarding the current Visitation Policy. Thank you for your adherence.

COVID-19: CORE INFECTION PREVENTION UPDATE

Many of our residents and clients are in the high-risk group for COVID-19 and may have medical conditions putting them at a very high risk of becoming sick, or even severely ill, from COVID-19. For the safety of your loved one and our community, visitors must adhere to core infection prevention while inside the facility. Visiting outdoors is safer and preferred over indoor visitation.

Core Infection Prevention:

  • Visitors must be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and close contact with someone with COVID-19 within previous 14 days.
  • Visitors and residents must use alcohol-based hand rub or wash hands with soap and water before and after each visit.
  • While alone in the patient/resident’s room or the designated visitation room, fully vaccinated patients/residents and their fully vaccinated visitor(s) can choose to have close contact (including touch) and to not wear source control (PPE such as masks).
  • Visitors should wear source control and physically distance from other healthcare personnel and other residents/visitors that are not part of their group at all other times while in the facility.
  • The safest approach is for everyone to maintain physical distancing and to wear source control. However, if the patient/resident is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their unvaccinated visitor(s) while both continue to wear well-fitting source control.
  • Visitors should go directly to the visiting area and directly out of the facility when the visit has ended.

Facilities must have a policy in place to manage visitation and visitor flow so that these core infection prevention principles are maintained. This may include limiting the number of visitors per resident at one time or limiting the total number of visitors in the facility at one time. The facility may schedule visits for specified length of time to help ensure all residents are able to receive visitors.

Thank you for helping us keep our community and residents safe.

UPDATE 07/27/21

We have been working to keep everyone updated on actions being taken to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the Kline Galland Home, The Summit at First Hill and our Community Based Services. We remain committed to providing you updated information as regulations and protocols change.

COVID-19

A Nurse’s Aide on East 3 at the Kline Galland Home has tested positive for COVID-19. This staff member was fully vaccinated and is at home under the supervision of their personal physician.

At this time, visitation at the Kline Galland Home is on hold, with the exception of Compassionate Visits. This is pursuant to state and federal guidelines. We will keep you informed when we are able to reopen visitation. Please contact your social worker with any questions.

COVID-19: CORE INFECTION PREVENTION UPDATE

Many of our residents and clients are in the high-risk group for COVID-19 and may have medical conditions putting them at a very high risk of becoming sick, or even severely ill, from COVID-19. For the safety of your loved one and our community, visitors must adhere to core infection prevention while inside the facility. Visiting outdoors is safer and preferred over indoor visitation.

Core Infection Prevention:

  • Visitors must be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and close contact with someone with COVID-19 within previous 14 days.
  • Visitors and residents must use alcohol-based hand rub or wash hands with soap and water before and after each visit.
  • While alone in the patient/resident’s room or the designated visitation room, fully vaccinated patients/residents and their fully vaccinated visitor(s) can choose to have close contact (including touch) and to not wear source control (PPE such as masks).
  • Visitors should wear source control and physically distance from other healthcare personnel and other residents/visitors that are not part of their group at all other times while in the facility.
  • The safest approach is for everyone to maintain physical distancing and to wear source control. However, if the patient/resident is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their unvaccinated visitor(s) while both continue to wear well-fitting source control.
  • Visitors should go directly to the visiting area and directly out of the facility when the visit has ended.

Facilities must have a policy in place to manage visitation and visitor flow so that these core infection prevention principles are maintained. This may include limiting the number of visitors per resident at one time or limiting the total number of visitors in the facility at one time. The facility may schedule visits for specified length of time to help ensure all residents are able to receive visitors.

Thank you for helping us keep our community and residents safe.

VISITATION POLICY

Please note that visitation at the Kline Galland Home, with the exception of Compassionate Visits, are on hold at this time.

For Compassionate Visits at the Kline Galland Home, please contact your social worker, who will help facilitate your visit. Our Social Services department will be happy to schedule your visit and explain the conditions for the visitation to ensure your safety, along with the safety of residents and staff.

You are not required to validate your vaccination status, but will be required to acknowledge your understanding of the Governor’s rule regarding the current Visitation Policy. Thank you for your adherence.

COVID-19 CASES

There is no new COVID-19 activity to report.

COVID-19: CORE INFECTION PREVENTION UPDATE

We are committed to keeping our residents and clients safe and we need your help. The virus causing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (abbreviated COVID-19) can cause outbreaks in long-term care facilities and residential homes. Many of our residents and clients are in the high-risk group for COVID-19 and may have medical conditions putting them at a very high risk of becoming sick, or even severely ill, from COVID-19. While the risk of COVID-19 has significantly decreased for residents, clients and visitors after being fully vaccinated, the risk is not eliminated. Though masking and distancing recommendations have been relaxed for the general public and for those who have been fully vaccinated, for the safety of your loved one and our community, visitors must adhere to core infection prevention while inside the facility. Visiting outdoors is safer and preferred over indoor visitation.

Core Infection Prevention:

  • Visitors must be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and close contact with someone with COVID-19 within previous 14 days.
  • Visitors and residents must use alcohol-based hand rub or wash hands with soap and water before and after each visit.
  • While alone in the patient/resident’s room or the designated visitation room, fully vaccinated patients/residents and their fully vaccinated visitor(s) can choose to have close contact (including touch) and to not wear source control (PPE such as masks).
  • Visitors should wear source control and physically distance from other healthcare personnel and other residents/visitors that are not part of their group at all other times while in the facility.
  • The safest approach is for everyone to maintain physical distancing and to wear source control.

COVID-19 POSITIVES

We are investigating two possible COVID-19 positive cases at the Kline Galland Home. One staff member is in the maintenance department and tested positive via lab (PCR) testing, but retested twice negative via rapid antigen testing.

Due to these developments, indoor visitation has been suspended with the exception of compassionate care visits and outdoor visits, which will still be allowed. Once we receive updated results on these two cases, we will notify you of the results, along with updated visitation guidelines, which we expect and hope to be expanded next week if we receive negative results from all outstanding tests.

We remain committed to providing you factual information during this time and have a few updates we would like to share.

The CDC has created a fact sheet regarding the vaccines. To review this information, please click here.

COVID-19 UPDATE

A Hospice patient residing in an Adult Family Home has tested positive for COVID-19. The patient is not in a Kline Galland facility.

We are currently testing staff members along with residents who agree to be tested at the Kline Galland Home twice a week via PCR (lab) testing. Daily antigen tests will continue for unvaccinated direct care staff or upon symptoms. We are currently testing staff members at The Summit at First Hill and Community Based Services staff once a week via PCR (lab) testing.

NOTICE PROTOCOL

In the event of a patient’s positive COVID-19 test result at the Kline Galland Home and The Summit at First Hill, we will contact the responsible parties of the positive-testing patient, and defer to email, website and Facebook updates for the rest of the affected unit and facility. We will no longer be calling the entire affected unit’s responsible parties. This will provide more timely communication and save staff resources. Our utmost priority is taking care of residents and patients, and this streamlined protocol will allow our staff to focus on the wellbeing of our residents.

GIVING IN 2021

Your support has made a critical difference with helping our organization fight through the pandemic, helping to increase the safety of all those under our care. While we continue our work into 2021, many of our friends and supporters are looking for new ways to support Kline Galland. In response to the COVID-19 situation, Congress has extended some of the COVID relief tax changes to 2021.

2021 Giving Incentives: The CARES Act included several charitable tax provisions encouraging giving that have been extended into 2021. These include a deduction for charitable donors who do not itemize their tax returns. Additionally, we will see an increase in the deduction limit up to 100% of a donor’s annual income for cash gifts (previously capped at 60% of annual income).

IRA: When you revisit your estate plan, consider funding a testamentary charitable remainder unitrust with your IRA balance. This plan can provide lifetime payments to your heirs and spread out the taxes on their inheritance due to tax changes.

Charitable Gift Annuities: If you are concerned about your financial security given the ups and down of the stock market, you may want to consider making a gift to fund a charitable gift annuity. With a CGA you can exchange stock, CD’s or cash for lifetime (tax free) fixed payments and possibly avoid most of your capital gains.

Charitable Bequests: We have a free estate planning guide if you would like to support our cause with a charitable bequest. We can provide you with a copy of our bequest language and complimentary gift illustrations.

If you are interested in partnering with us or making personal introductions to those that might have an interest in supporting our organization, please contact Nate Nusbaum, Chief Development Officer at NateN@Klinegalland.org or call Nate directly at (206) 353-2263.

UPDATE 01/18/21

We have been working to keep everyone updated on actions being taken to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the Kline Galland Home, The Summit at First Hill and within Community Based Services. We remain committed to providing you factual information during this time and have a few updates we would like to share.

The CDC has created a fact sheet regarding the vaccines. To review this information, please click here.

COVID-19 POSITIVES

We have no new COVID-19 activity to report.

We are currently testing direct care staff members of all units before every shift via rapid antigen test. Residents of East 3 who agree to be tested are currently receiving twice daily antigen tests, and all other residents who agree to be tested are receiving once daily antigen tests. All residents who agree to be tested are also being tested twice a week via PCR (lab) testing.

VACCINE UPDATE

The Emergency Use Authorization has been issued for the Pfizer vaccine, as well as the Moderna vaccine. Both vaccines are a two-shot modality. Moderna’s second shot occurs 28 days after the first shot, and Pfizer’s occurs 21 days after the first shot.

We have received confirmation of our second vaccine clinic dates at the Kline Galland Home for Sunday 1/24 and Thursday 1/28. At this time we are awaiting the second vaccine clinic date for The Summit at First Hill and will keep you informed when they have been issued.

We will keep you apprised as we receive more information from both the State of Washington and the Federal Government.

NOTICE PROTOCOL

In the event of a patient’s positive COVID-19 test result at the Kline Galland Home and The Summit at First Hill, we will contact the responsible parties of the positive-testing patient, and defer to email, website and Facebook updates for the rest of the affected unit and facility. We will no longer be calling the entire affected unit’s responsible parties. This will provide more timely communication and save staff resources. Our utmost priority is taking care of residents and patients, and this streamlined protocol will allow our staff to focus on the wellbeing of our residents.
