Per MDHHS’ emergency order issued on June 30th, we are only allowed to permit visitors under two scenarios.

  1. If a resident has hearing, vision or speech impairments and needs assistance with ADLs (that a family member can provide), then we can care plan them for visitors.  If that was not occurring before 3/14, then there would need to be documentation of the change in the MDS assessment.  The MDS assessment is where we document a significant change of condition.  For example, if someone had a stroke on June 1 and now required feeding assistance, that would trigger a MDS assessment.  That is what the government it looking for, if it wasn’t occurring prior to 3/14.

  2. The other scenario that we are to allow visitors is when a resident is in “serious or critical condition or in hospice care”.  The emergency order defines this as any resident enrolled in hospice; residents receiving end of life care; residents whose wellbeing is at a significant risk, whose family visits are a potentially effective intervention; or residents who experience a significant adverse change of condition.  The last two have to have supporting documentation by the physician.   

We apologize for the inconvenience.  MDHHS’ contact information is 888-535-6136 or email,, if you would like to leave them feedback regarding the visitation order.  This order is in effect until lifted by MDHHS.
