COVID-19 Response

Stay With Confidence During COVID-19

UPDATE April 12, 2021

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nora’s Home is using all reasonable efforts to protect the health and safety of the solid organ transplant patients, their caregivers and the Nora’s Home Staff.  As we navigate our way through this crisis, we continue to implement new safeguards aimed at limiting the risk of exposure to patients, caregivers and staff.

Nora’s Home initiated a phased reopening approach effective June 1, 2020 to resume accepting new reservations from post-hospitalization solid organ transplant patients and one (1) caregiver.

Admissions Update April 12, 2021:

Nora’s Home has continued to maintain a safe and low risk setting for virus transmission. To meet the accommodation requirements for the transplant patient population traveling for care within the fully operational transplant centers in the TMC, Nora’s Home will now be operating at a maximum 75% capacity (25 of 32 rooms).

Regardless of vaccination status, patient and (1) caregiver must provide a documented negative result of an FDA Emergency Use Authorized COVID-19 molecular assay for detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA (PCR Swab). This test must be performed during the 72 hours preceding check-in. Patients and caregivers who receive a negative test result more than 72 hours prior to check-in must be retested within the 72 hour window before checking into Nora’s Home.

If you or your caregiver is having trouble accessing testing, please contact us at (832) 831-3720.  In coordination with your hospital social worker, Nora’s Home will endeavor to assist you in acquiring the testing you need in order to stay with us.

As part of this phased reopening and with dedication to limiting the spread of COVID-19, facility guidelines have been established in compliance with state and local health recommendations.

Some COVID-19 preventative measures include:

  • Capacity limited to 75% effective April 2021
  • Coronavirus screenings for all staff and guests
  • Extensive cleaning and disinfecting of the facility
  • Requirement of masks and social distancing while in common areas
  • New renovations including a protective barrier at the front desk and hand sanitizing stations

Please note that that this is not a comprehensive list of protocols.  Additional house rules designed to ensure the safety of all Nora’s Home guests and staff will be provided to you at time of check-in.

We thank all of our guests for their cooperation.
