Please see important message regarding COVID-19:
We feel that it’s in the best interests of our patients, families, visitors, and staff to suspend all visitation including the Family Wellness Program and Children and Youth Program until further notice. We will provide additional phone access to our patients, so as not to limit their ability to communicate with you. We realize the inconvenience this creates for everyone involved and intend to resume family programming and visitation when it’s deemed appropriate.
As of April 13, 2020, Ashley implemented a Stabilization Period for all patients upon admission or re-admission to Ashley’s main campus in an effort to mitigate the risk to our patient community.
Research has shown that over half of individuals with COVID-19 exposure will show symptoms within 5-and-half-days after exposure. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also referenced data suggesting that some people can test positive for COVID-19 1-3 days before they develop symptoms. Because it is possible that people infected with COVID-19 could transmit the virus before significant symptoms develop instituting this stabilization period – during which time new patients will not have close contact* with any other patients or staff – will ensure the potential exposure to others is very limited.
The WHO also reports that shedding of the COVID-19 virus is highest within the first 3 days from onset of symptoms. Thus, for patients who develop respiratory illness symptoms at any time during their inpatient treatment and screen positive as a Persons Under Investigation (PUI) their contingency discharge plan established prior to admission will be executed.
*According to the CDC, data is limited to define close contact. Factors to consider when defining close contact include proximity, the duration of exposure (e.g., longer exposure time likely increases exposure risk), whether the individual has symptoms (e.g., coughing likely increases exposure risk) and whether the individual was wearing a face mask (which can efficiently block respiratory secretions from contaminating others and the environment).
