The Hubbard Care Center is located in the heart of Hardin County. Our facility is a 60-bed nursing facility, which has been providing care to families in Hubbard and surrounding communities since April 1997. The Hubbard Care Center is locally owned by Hubbard Care Center, Inc.
Our purpose here at the Hubbard Care Center is to provide around the clock care and service for the aged and disabled. We have the responsibility in supporting and directly providing this care and services. An important part of this responsibility is to observe and maintain the tradition of providing the highest standard of quality care for our residents. We must remember that each resident is important, deserves, and must always receive recognition as an individual.

COVID-19 Nursing Home Visitation Revised
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)/Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) set visitation restrictions during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency to prevent the opportunity for visitors to bring COVID-19 into the care center. They determined that fully open and unrestricted visitation posed a clinical health and safety risk to the residents.
HHS and CMS have released data that shows approximately 86% of residents and 74% of staff in care centers are fully vaccinated, and the number of new COVID-19 cases each week has been reduced by approximately 80%. As a result HHS and CMS have determined that continued restrictions on visitation are no longer necessary.
These things related to visits have not changed:
*Visitors will need to screen in on the kiosk when they arrive at the care center.
If you are visiting with a group of people and the visit is going to take place in the chapel or former therapy room you will screen in just inside the chapel doors.
If you are visiting with a group of people and the visit is going to take place in the activity center you will screen in just inside the therapy entrance.
*Visitors will need to sanitize their hands and wear a mask. These are available at each screening area.
The following changes have been implemented regarding visits to the care center as of 12-1-21:
*The care center will not require advanced scheduling of visits. If you would like to continue to call and schedule your visits we will be happy to assist you.
*The care center will not limit the frequency of visits or the length of visits.
*The care center will not limit the number of visitors. Although there is no limit to the number of visitors that a resident can have at one time, the visits should be conducted in a manner that adheres to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention and does not increase risk to other residents. The care center is required to ensure that physical distancing can be maintained during visits and that large gatherings are avoided where large numbers of visitors are in the same space at the same time and physical distancing cannot be maintained.
If you plan to visit and you will be bringing several people with you, we would appreciate it if you call ahead so we can make sure to have a space ready to accommodate your visit.
*Where will the indoor visits take place?
-During the visit the care center is required to limit visitor movement in the facility. Visitors should not walk around in the building but rather they should go directly to the resident’s room or agreed upon visitation area (i.e. activity center, chapel.)
-If the resident has a roommate the visit should be conducted in another area.
-For situations where there is a roommate and the health status of the resident prevents them from leaving the room, a facility staff member will ask the roommate if they are in agreement with leaving the room during the visit.
*Is a mask required to be worn during the visit?
All visitors need to sanitize their hands, wear a mask, and physically distance, regardless of vaccination status, when they are in the common areas of the care center where there are other residents, visitors, and care center staff.
In the resident’s room or designated visitation area:
If the resident and all of their visitors are fully vaccinated and the resident is not moderately or severely immunocompromised, they may choose not to wear masks and to have physical contact during the visit in the resident’s room or in the area designated for the visit.
If the resident and/or any of the visitors are not fully vaccinated masks must be worn and physical distancing must be maintained during the visit. In an end of life situation
*If a resident is in quarantine or isolation due to being positive for COVID-19 can they still have visitors?
While it is not recommended by HHS and CMS, a resident who is positive for COVID-19 may have visitors in the resident’s room.
During the visit:
-The resident must wear a well-fitting face mask (if tolerated) and the visitor(s) must wear a mask.
-Before visiting, a facility staff member will make the visitor(s) aware of the potential risk of visiting and the precautions necessary in order to visit the resident.
*If the care center has a new onset of COVID-19 and is in an outbreak are visits allowed?
While it is safer for visitors not to enter the care center during an outbreak, visitors are allowed to visit. Visitors will be made aware of the potential risk of visiting during an outbreak investigation, and adhere to the principles of infection prevention. If an individual chooses to visit during an outbreak they will be required to sanitize their hands, wear a mask, and the visit will need to take place in the resident’s room.
*Are visitors required to be vaccinated?
Visitors are not required to be vaccinated. The kiosk that is used for screening includes a question regarding the visitor’s vaccination status. Answering no to this question does not prohibit an individual from visiting.
We acknowledge that there are still concerns associated with visitation, however adherence to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention which include sanitizing hands, wearing a mask, and social distancing help to mitigate these concerns.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the revised visitation guidelines.
Thank you for you continued support of the Hubbard Care Center.
