Our clinic is here to help navigate the Coronavirus pandemic and it is important to ensure the safety of our patients. Below are the measures we are taking to protect our patients. If you have any questions or would like additional advice, we are here to help. Do not hesitate to reach out to me. We are all in this together.

Screening Patient Before Arrival
• Before arrival into the office, ALL PATIENTS will be screened and those with any cold or flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, fatigue, difficulty breathing, and/or sore throat will be asked to stay at home.

 The screening process will include interview questions such as the following:

  • Have you or anyone you have come in contact with,  traveled outside of the US this calendar year
  • Have you or anyone you have come in contact with traveled to or from the Seattle, NYC, or any other hotspots within the country?
  • All patients and staff will be asked to pass “the hold your breath” test for 10 secs.
  • Ask all patients if they have any pre-existing factors that would place them in the high-risk category.

Upon Arrival

  • All patients will be asked to have their temperature taken with a forehead thermometer and sent home if found to be higher than 100.3 degrees. We are working on getting one, it is sold out.
  • Patients are taken directly from the parking lot into care with their PT, please call when you arrive to the parking lot and you will be escorted in when your therapist is ready for you, our waiting room is currently not being used to avoid unnecessary person to person contact.
  • All patients will use their own pen for signing any forms/documents

While in the office

The following standard operating procedures will be enforced:

  • No more than one patient per hour per therapist. Cleaning of all rooms and equipment with disinfecting wipes will occur before and after each appointment.
  • All therapist schedules will be staggered to minimize patient interaction.
  • No caregivers will be permitted to stay in the waiting room while patients are being treated.
  • Maintain a 6-foot distance from patient to patient and therapist to patient when possible.
  • All handwashing and equipment cleaning before and after each patient will be performed.
  • No hand shaking, hugging or unnecessary body contact please.
  • Bring your own water (all water fountains will be eliminated).
  • More frequent sanitization of all personal electronic devices.
  • All windows and doors will be propped open when possible.
  • Air purifiers will be brought to help filter the air in the office.
  • Elimination of all soft surfaces that cannot be disinfected such as foam handles, white foam rollers, and cloth-based surfaces.
