Nursing home in Mazatlan survives pandemic with few donations


This nursing home has been operating “behind closed doors” since the contingency plan began in March; and so far it does not register infections

Mazatlán, Sinaloa (July 15, 2020) .- With few donations and few citizen contributions, the La Inmaculada nursing home, which houses 33 older adults, has operated “behind closed doors” and with strict security measures during the Covid-19 pandemic, so far there has not been a single case of contagion between the staff or its residents.

Laura Amor Flores Gutiérrez, administrator of the nursing home, points out that two calls have already been made to the Mazatlan community to support them in this period of confinement; however, the response has been very little.

She said that since March, the asylum closed its doors to visits from relatives, friends and acquaintances of older adults, as well as volunteers, schools and companies; since then, the only ones who enter are the employees and they do so under security standards established by the health sector

She commented that despite the care in all these days of confinement, in giving the best diet possible to older adults, with vitamins and keeping them up to date, common flu has not been lacking in some of them who at times have turned on the floodlights Alert, but fortunately they have not been Covid-19.
