Coronavirus Update

As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued across our state, we have worked diligently to care for those who call Martha Franks home.  Extraordinary precautions have been in place and visiting restrictions have been implemented.

As the state of SC has continued to respond to the COVID situation, SC DHEC has begun testing all nursing home residents and staff members.  The testing was completed at Martha Franks’ nursing facility on 5/21/20 with results indicating no resident or staff testing positive for the virus.

Resident and staff safety continues to be our top priority as we implement the recommendations of local and state health professionals to provide the best care. In addition to providing safety in healthcare, the Martha Franks staff have served as emotional and personal support for residents that recent visitation restrictions have not afforded resident's family members.

We remain thankful for God's provisions during this pandemic and continue to pray for the safety and well-being of our residents, family, and staff.

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.
