Unfortunately, there was an outbreak of Covid-19 in a Wexford nursing home recently…
Middletown House Nursing Home has confirmed to Wexford Weekly “that a number of Covid-19 cases have been confirmed.”
Speaking on the matter, management of the nursing home said:
“The cases were detected arising from a routine testing of all staff and residents and we have immediately implemented a care plan to manage the outbreak.”
Engagement is being undertaken on a day-to-day basis with the HSE and relevant authorities to ensure the best care measures are being implemented for Covid-19 positive residents and for every resident in our nursing home.”
Management of the nursing home, located in Ardamine in North Wexford, stressed that “this is a difficult time, but management and staff are committed to providing residents with the best possible care.”
“Our objective is to improve the condition of every resident who has tested positive, with the aim of helping each of them to make a full recovery.”
“We thank staff for their continued dedication and we ask the media to respect the privacy of the residents and staff during this difficult time.”
Again, at Wexford Weekly, we must highlight that businesses, nursing homes, schools, and people should not be stigmatised. All are trying their utmost not to get Covid-19 and these are unprecedented times.
We wish all at Middletown House Nursing Home a speedy recovery, while we’d also like to encourage our readers to revert back to the basics to help inhibit the spread of the virus: wash your hands regularly, social distance, wear your mask, sanitise, and avoid large groups.
