Today’s Front Line Hero is Hatton Prairie Village in Hatton, North Dakota, for providing a safe environment for families to reconnect.
Consistently recognized for its exceptional service, Hatton Prairie Village is proud of its high standards of care for its residents. HPV has been awarded on numerous occasions with a five-star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and named to U.S. News & World Report’s list of the nation’s Best Nursing Homes. HPV draws on the deep experience of its employees, which includes nearly four hundred years collectively amongst its certified nursing assistants alone.
Like all nursing facilities, HPV has had to make a number of tough decisions over the past year to protect its residents and staff from the coronavirus. The community has chronicled its evolution of its increased use of PPE, from paper masks and goggles to N95s and face shields. While HPV’s legion of front line heroes must remain hidden behind masks for residents’ and staff members’ mutual safety, the organization was excited to open its doors to visitors last week after ensuring that everyone in-house had tested negative for COVID-19. The regulated visitations will continue as long as all parties involved keep testing negative—a welcome development for residents and their families who will cherish the added time to reconnect.
Thank you to Hatton Prairie Village and your staff for your dedication to the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of your residents during the pandemic!
