Today Ronda Dodge, President of the Island Nursing Home Board of Directors, and I continued our discussions about the upcoming closure of Island Nursing Home (INH).

In this episode, she discusses two current COVID cases among residents and how this will impact placement plans. In addition, we talk about how the community can continue to assist the INH administration and board during this time. We also cover the Task Force and Ronda’s role in helping it to succeed. Another important subject we tackle are recent community rumors about staff turnover, quality of care at the facility and who is serving on the INH Board.

Please continue to send your questions to me at ihwf1966@gmail.com
