Optimal Safety

Safety is Paramount to Our Community

To ensure the safety of our patients, we have implemented a multifaceted approach in preventing viruses like COVID-19 from spreading. This includes routine electrostatic cleaning with an ionizer machine and HEPA air scrubbers as well as MERV 13 filters for better filtration systems that remove dust particles before they can enter your lungs. The best part? It works! Studies show how cold plasma therapy has significantly reduced infections when installed on site in healthcare facilities.

Partnering With Industry Experts

In response to the changing nature of infectious diseases, we’ve been working hard to ensure that our protocols meet up-to date standards. We’re collaborating with university and community based epidemiology experts as well North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control & Epidemic Intelligence (SPICE), following state guidelines from CDC.

Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:


Following all guidance and requirements for state and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to ensure optimal patient, family and staff safety


Residents are monitored and screened regularly


Teammates and guests wear masks throughout their shifts/visits when required
