With NO resident cases at Ottawa County Riverview Healthcare Campus,

Ottawa County Riverview Healthcare Campus is proud to announce the addition of Independent Living to our campus!
Late Friday, November 12, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) changed their visitation guidelines,
which basically opens visitation to all residents.
NEW Screening form AS OF 5am 7/13/2021:
- The Receptionist or the Nursing Supervisor will still temp the staff member/visitor in and record the date, time and temperature on the top right corner of the sheet.
- If a visitors temp is above 99 a Supervisor should be called immediately for further assessment. If the visitor’s temp is above 100, they should be directed to leave the facility immediately and please leave their screening sheet in our Infection Preventionist, Jen Parkinson’s mailbox and she will reach out to them. It will be up to the visitor if he/she reaches out for further assessment form a healthcare provider outside of Riverview.
- Visitors will be required to print their name, print the resident/staff member they are visiting, as well as leave a phone number (IF We would need to conduct contact tracing following their visit).
- IF either staff member or visitor marks anything with a “YES” the Infection Preventionist (Jen Parkinson) or Nursing Supervisor should be contacted to further assess. (This should have been occuring all along, so should not be a change.)
- There is now a back page to the screening Sorry😧
- Employees and visitors are educated to monitor for symptoms 14 day following their shift/visit to the facility.
- If the visitor develops symptoms, has a positive COVID test, or is diagnosed or suspected to have COVID-19 by a licensed healthcare professional; the visitor is required to notify the Riverview immediately (the phone call should be forwarded to the Infection Preventionist, if here OR the Nursing Supervisor) if they have been in Riverview the 14 days prior.
- The employee/visitor needs to sign this assessment as well as the screener
- If a supervisor or our Infection Preventionist was contacted for further assessment, they should document on the lower portion of the 2nd page what further action was taken and sign.

While Riverview is owned and operated by the Ottawa County Commissioners, the facility is financially independent. Riverview receives no funds from the Ottawa County general fund. Riverview’s revenue stream includes Medicare, Medicaid, Private Pay Individuals, and commercial insurances among a few other smaller revenue sources.
Riverview does have a five year .5 mill tax levy which brings in approximately $850,000 per year. This tax levy is utilized for capital projects to keep the facility in good condition to remain an asset to the Ottawa County tax payers, a comfortable home to our residents and an attractive choice in our competitive senior housing industry.
This site is updated with current Riverview capital projects funded by our Riverview levy.
The Riverview Renovation Project is funded by a 10 million dollar Bond being paid through the facility’s currently .5 mil tax levy.
