Proactive measures taken regarding COVID-19

(UPDATED 11.14.2022)

We’re here for you and your loved one!

Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care is taking proactive measures to reduce exposure of COVID-19 and has developed an organization-wide response and mitigation plan to reduce exposure of COVID-19. Like other Hospice organizations across the country, Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care will implement these measures while continuing to provide visits and core services to our at-risk population in our five-county service area.

The practice will be implemented from March 16, 2020, until further notice.

Please review the following:

Leila & Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence

  • To protect our patients, staff, and families, patients may have up to three visitors in their room at a time.
    • All visitors and staff must pass a temperature and symptom screening upon entry.
    • No children under the age of 5 are allowed.
    • Fully vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors must be masked at all times while inside the Poppen Residence including the patient’s room. Masks are provided upon entry.
    • All visitors must be masked while walking through common areas of the Poppen Residence regardless of vaccination status
      • The above 3 requirements will be posted throughout the Poppen Residence as Harbor Hospice staff cannot ask for proof of vaccination to visitors and this will be based on the honor system.
    • Visitors are not allowed to stand or sit in any common areas of the Poppen Residence.
  • Exterior doors will be locked at all times.
  • If able, efforts to provide phone calls and other electronic forms of communication will be provided.
  • You may mail your loved one letters, pictures, and cards.
  • Poppen Staff will contact you if your loved one’s condition changes.
  • Our teams are available if you, a loved one, or a friend is inquiring about services. Please call our office for additional information.

Thank you for helping to keep your loved one and our other residents safe during this challenging time.
