State releases nursing home COVID-19 dataJuly 24, 2020
From Local Sources
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration made public Wednesday COVID-19 infection data for long-term care facilities in the state.
The new nursing home information breaks down the number of coronavirus infections and deaths at individual facilities after state officials had refused to do so since April despite complaints from relatives of home residents about a lack of communication about outbreaks.
Dr. Dan Rusyniak, chief medical officer for FSSA, said the new report includes reports from 83% of the 760 long-term care facilities across the state.
The data shows that March 1 through July 14, there were 1,390 reported deaths in long-term care residents in the state. This represents about 53% of the state’s total COVID-19 deaths, according to Rusyniak.
In addition, facilities reported 5,867 long-term care residents who had tested positive for COVID-19, or about 11% of the state’s total cases.
In the same time period, facilities also reported 2,521 infections in staff and 12 total deaths. Rusyniak said the state would not identify the facilities where those staff who died worked because of privacy concerns.
Here’s the data for local long-term care facilities:
• St. Charles Health Campus: Less than five infected staff.
• The Timbers of Jasper: No cases to report.
• Brookside Village, Jasper: No cases to report.
• Northwood Retirement Community, Jasper: Eight residents infected, five staff members infected and less than five resident deaths.
• Cathedral Health Care Center, Jasper: Less than five infected staff.
• Legacy Living of Jasper: No cases to report.
• Memorial Hospital Skilled Care Center, Jasper: Less than five residents infected, less than five infected staff.
• Scenic Hills at the Monastery, Ferdinand: Less than five infected staff.
• The Waters of Huntingburg: Facility has not submitted data.
• Willowdale Village, Dale: No cases to report.
To protect privacy, numbers less than five are reported as such.
The nursing homes reporting the most COVID-19 resident deaths in the state were Harrison Terrace in Indianapolis (38), Greenwood Meadows in Greenwood (35), Bethany Pointe Health Campus in Anderson (33) and North Woods Village in Kokomo (33). The report lists 447 facilities recording no such deaths and 84 having fewer than five.
