COVID-19 Coronavirus Update


Coronavirus Update

CDC/DHEC guidelines currently allow us to schedule indoor visitation for all levels of care as long as there are no positive test results among our residents or staff and the county positivity rate remains below 10%.  To schedule a visit with your loved one, you may call 843.393.7181. However, as you make plans to visit, we respectfully ask that you please postpone your visit if you are not feeling well or suspect that you have recently been in contact with anyone experiencing any symptoms associated with Covid-19.

At Bethea, our top priority is the safety and well-being of our residents. We actively follow CDC guidelines to mitigate exposure, such as enhanced infection control procedures and isolation of any affected individuals. Bethea residents are monitored for symptoms and treatment is provided as appropriate. Our staff  also continues to be tested monthly based on the county positivity rate.

We will continue to provide regular updates to residents, family members and staff as well as local and state health agencies.  Our nursing staff faithfully deliver compassionate care to those who call Bethea home, and it is our desire to safely reunite residents and their families, as allowed by South Carolina and CMS (Centers of Medicare Services) authorities.   

We need your help


On-Call Emergency Worker Sign up

SCBMA leadership is preparing for every possible scenario as the pandemic evolves.  Part of that effort involves compiling a list of Emergency On-Call Workers who are willing to provide care and services to residents at Bethea or Martha Franks should we find ourselves short of staff.
