NEW Screening form AS OF 5am 7/13/2021:


As of July 5, OSHA has mandated new requirements for Healthcare facilities and physician practices and clinics! Most of the requirements Nursing Homes have already been following, however there are changes to our screening process and sadly we will no longer be able to use our current form for staff or visitors! This is NOT a Riverview decision and we apologize for the additional time this will take our staff when entering the facility as well as when screening a visit to come into the facility.
  • 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.

I once again apologize for these extra steps and please know that these are because of OSHA’s new requirements.

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.

Come Play in Our Backyard

Located along the scenic Portage River Riverview Healthcare Campus provides wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Come stroll along our Riverwalk, a quarter mile walking track, and possibly see some local wildlife. Take a stroll on Centennial Lane, a walkway bordered by trees which have been planted to honor our residents while they celebrate their 100th birthday. There are also picnic tables and a grill available for family cookouts. If you enjoy fishing there is access to the Portage River. Maybe there will be a story about the “one” that got away. Our backyard also provides a quiet place to relax or watch a beautiful sunset.
