For weeks there was a ban on visitors in the nursing homes. Just in time for mother’s day, the rules have now been relaxed : one fixed, registered person per resident is allowed to visit the facilities again as of saturday. But to avoid an anstrum on mother’s day, there are even more special rules in the old people’s homes in the district of kitzingen.
In principle, visitors must call in advance and register as a contact person so that the chain of infection can be traced in case of infection. During the visit, the usual hygiene rules apply, such as face masks and sufficient safety distance.
Visits are possible only outside the living room
To ensure this, they set up a visitors’ tent in the kitzingerland nursing home, which adjoined the winter garden in the cafeteria. "The visiting time is limited to half an hour", says the head of the facility, helmut witt. In this way, the nursing home wants to give all residents the chance to visit.
"For saturday and sunday we have a special plan", says gabriele brandner, manager of the senior citizens’ home schloss ebracher hof in mainstockheim. Since the new regulations for visitors were announced by the bavarian government only at short notice, the measures were limited to this weekend for the time being.
They have drawn circles and set up chairs in the outdoor area so that visitors can meet with their relatives in the fresh air. "There you have one hour with an appointment", explains the head of the facility. Appointments in mainstockheim are only possible during visiting hours from 9 to 11 a.M. And between 3 p.M. And 5 p.M.
Hygiene rules must be observed
In the house. Elisabeth in kitzingen had to decide who could come on the weekend. "The guidelines are very clear," explains, says the social services manager of the facility, christiane greubel. According to the rules, only three of the 85 residents were allowed to visit the facility at the same time, and only in a special room outside the living area. "There’s no other way to manage it", so greubel.
Visitors must also take a temperature when they enter the senior citizens’ home. "There are no exceptions", says the head of social services at the facility. If someone violates the hygiene rules, they are allowed to make use of their domiciliary rights and prohibit a visit for the protection of the residents.
