Someren Glen’s Skilled Nursing Community has received Telligen’s Blue Ribbon in COVID-19 Vigilance Award. This award recognizes our commitment to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Someren Glen is one of 30 skilled nursing communities in the state and only a handful in the Denver metro area to be recognized by the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare for its high team member and resident vaccination rates and strong processes to prevent the spread of infection in the community.
“Nursing homes that receive this award have demonstrated their commitment to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said Sue Stefan, Telligen Executive Director, Federal Health Solutions. “We applaud the hard work of Someren Glen for ensuring that COVID-19 related policies, processes, and ongoing staff education are in place and for taking the critical step to get their staff and residents vaccinated.”
Nursing homes on the recognition list have met criteria to prevent the spread of COVID-19 for the safety of their residents and staff. This includes completing a COVID-19 preparedness attestation and achieving a staff COVID-19 vaccination rate of 85% or greater and a resident COVID-19 vaccination rate of 95% or greater. Currently, Someren Glen has a combined resident and team member vaccination rate of 97%.
