Dear Residents and Families:
We have identified two Residents who have tested Influenza A positive on 3 East at Pembina Place
MPCH. The ill Residents have been started on antiviral treatment and are isolating in their rooms.
We will also be offering all other Residents on 3 East antiviral treatment to prevent them from
becoming ill. We have discussed consent for this antiviral medication called Tamiflu or Oseltamivir (SEE INFO BELOW)
at your loved one’s care conference. We are monitoring all Residents carefully for any symptoms of
Influenza and will offer antiviral dosing to treatment doses for Residents who become ill in
consultation with the physician.
Please consider postponing your visits until after the outbreak has resolved to help reduce
possible transmission. We understand that family and visitors are vitally important, as such
visitation can continue, but we ask that visits occur in resident’s rooms only until the outbreak
is over, and that all visitors sanitize their hands before and after visiting. Please only visit
one resident if you do choose to visit, and do not come for a visit if feeling ill.
We also strongly encourage mask usage while visiting Residents.
If you have any questions about your Resident, please contact the Nursing Stations.
Please keep our Residents and Staff in your thoughts and prayers.
