Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates

At Professional Physical Therapy, the health and safety of our patients is always our top priority. As such, we are diligently monitoring updates to the Coronavirus or COVID-19. We understand this is a challenging time for us, but want to reassure you that we are committed to using preventive measures such as disinfecting our equipment and countertops, washing our hands frequently, and using alcohol-based sanitizer to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, as well as cold and flu. In addition, we are emphasizing and encouraging proper hand hygiene among our patients, and have strategically placed hand sanitizers and wipes throughout our clinics. Our clinicians and staff are happy to employ the use of gloves and/or masks upon request or when necessary.

Please be aware that we are actively engaged in social distancing within our clinics for the health and the safety of you, our staff, and our treating clinicians. When you come in for your appointment, you may encounter measures that include the use of gloves and masks, in addition to increased frequency of cleaning procedures. We have implemented initial screenings to inquire about your health history and any possibility of exposure or symptoms related to COVID-19 before you may begin treatment in the clinic.

Continuing our precautionary methods, we insist that if you are experiencing any of the common cold or flulike symptoms, that you allow our patient care coordinators to reschedule your appointment when you are feeling better. We will continue to monitor the latest Coronavirus updates and will make any changes necessary to help keep our patients and staff healthy.

We look forward to your next therapy visit, we want to ensure your health, and safety is a top priority at Professional Physical Therapy.  Amid the growing concerns surrounding the Corona virus (COVID-19) we wanted to keep you informed about the additional steps we are taking to ensure your and our staff’s health and wellness.  This is an evolving situation that we are monitoring closely to ensure all proper precautions are taken to make your therapy at Professional Physical Therapy a safe place for you and our team.

In addition to our regular cleaning practices, we are elevating our procedures to keep our clinics a safe and welcoming space for patients and staff.

•        We have increased the frequency of wiping down the equipment and plinths after each use as well as keyboards, doorknobs, and desk top surfaces.

•        We have encouraged staff to communicate with patients and each other in a proactive stance and respond to clinical signs and symptoms of the virus.

•        We are encouraging all patients and staff to wash your hands BEFORE and AFTER your therapy with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

•        As appropriate, we will use sanitary gloves for any hands on / manual therapy.

In addition to our measures, we ask that our patients to:

•        Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

•        Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then discard the tissue in the trash.

•        Keep disinfectant wipes with you.

•        If you are not feeling well contact the office about rescheduling your next appointment.

•        If you have been tested for COVID-19 we insist you wait until your results prove you are negative before you resume your rehabilitation program in our clinics.

 

If you have any questions about your safety and care please speak with your therapist. We will continue to update you as conditions evolve.

 

Thank you for assisting us in keeping everyone healthy and safe, we look forward to seeing you!
