COVID-19 Prevention Policies & Procedures
PRACTITIONERS & STAFF
100% of our Clinic Staff & Practitioners are FULLY COVID-19 VACCINATED, and have received boosters.
All Clinic Staff & Practitioners utilize PPE at all times, and abide by all COVID-19 Prevention Policies & Procedures (as detailed below) - which are regularly revised and updated to comply with Federal, State and local guidelines.
PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
Staff will discuss our COVID-19 Prevention Policies with every patient prior to their First Visit to ensure a full understanding of our new policies.
COVID- Pre-screening Questionnaire - We ask all patients to complete online pre-screening survey prior to each appointment. This is required.
All Patients (New & Returning) will be required to complete the one time COVID-19 INFORMED CONSENT FORM.
BEFORE ENTERING CLINIC
MASKS REQUIRED: Regardless of vaccination status, all those entering the clinic are required to wear a mask on entry and throughout their visit, until exiting the building.
PATIENTS ONLY - NO GUESTS: Please leave all guests at home, waiting in the car, or have them drop off and pick you up at a later time. Only patients will be allowed into the reception area and treatment rooms. NOTE: If you have special circumstances, please call us directly. We will do our very best to accomodate you.
TEMPERATURE & OXYGEN LEVEL CHECK: Each patient will have a pre-entry temperature screen and pulse oximeter reading. Anyone with a temperature of 100F or above, or a pulse-oximeter reading below 90 will need to reschedule treatment, and be advised to contact their primary healthcare provider.
AFTER ENTERING CLINIC
HAND HYGIENE: Upon entering the clinic, hand sanitation is required as you check into the front reception desk. You'll find a brand-spanking new "touch-less" alcohol sanitizer next to the reception desk. Just place your hands beneath it and alcohol will descend. Then, you'll be ready to enter the treatment room!
DOOR HANDLES: All door handles are continuously cleaned between each patient - including treatment, hallway and bathroom doors.
REDUCED OVERLAP: We will be spacing out appointments to reduce overlap from patient to patient.
WAITING AREA - SOCIAL DISTANCING: The "waiting areas" have been rearranged for safe social distancing - with well spaced chairs in case there's a delay, or should you arrive early. Our goal however, is to bring you directly into the treatment room upon arrival.
IN THE TREATMENT ROOM
PRACTITIONERS in SCRUBS: It's been a while, so just in case you've forgotten what we look like, we're the folks in scrubs. Wearing scrubs promotes optimal hygiene in a clinical setting.
PATIENT GOWNS: Additionally, we have comfortable patient gowns for each patient to use.
PATIENT SHOE TRAYS: Directly outside of each treatment room will be a shoe tray, where you can leave your shoes while in the treatment room. Current CDC reports inform us that the soles of shoes may function as a possible cross-contamination factor.
TREATMENT ROOM SANITATION: Treatment rooms are sanitized thoroughly before and after each patient with CDC approved disinfectants known to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, virus and fungi.
UVC LIGHTS & OZONE: Medical grade UVC Light with Ozone disinfection are utilized in all treatment rooms at intervals between patients.
CHECK OUT / PAYMENT / SCHEDULING
PAYMENT OPTIONS: We accept all Visa, MC, Discover, and Bank Cards, as well as FSA / HSA Cards which can be securely stored in our practice management software, for easy use with your approval and without physical contact.
SCHEDULING: For now, please call us if you're ready to schedule (917) 210-1063, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
CLINIC SANITATION: All common clinic spaces (bathrooms, waiting / reception area, hallways) will also be sanitized daily with CDC approved disinfectants known to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, virus and fungi.
UVC LIGHTS & OZONE: Medical grade UVC Light with Ozone disinfection are utilized throughout the clinic daily.
CLEANING: As per usual, our clinics are professionally cleaned and disinfected, and all gowns, sheets, towels and scrubs professionally laundered.
POST COVID - RETURN TO CLINIC POLICY (PATIENTS / STAFF)
Please understand that the "return to clinic" protocol is different for FULLY VACCINATED and those not FULLY VACCINATED. This is due to the longer vulnerability period that non-vaccinated individuals endure once exposed. Our only goal is to keep everyone safe! CDC GUIDELINES at this LINK
RETURN TO CLINIC REQUIREMENT - IF FULLY VACCINATED
We require a negative COVID PCR test between 5 - 7 days after you, or someone you've had close contact with has a confirmed or suspected COVID case or COVID symptoms.
RETURN TO CLINIC REQUIREMENT - IF NOT FULLY VACCINATED/UNVACCINATED
We require a negative COVID PCR test between 10 - 14 days after you, or someone you've had close contact with has a confirmed or suspected COVID case or COVID symptoms.
NOTE: Common cold and flu symptoms cannot be definitively
distinguished from COVID without a COVID PCR test.
CONTACT US: If you have suspected exposure, symptoms, or contact with someone who does - please inform us right away. Your timely notice allows us to make any necessary scheduling changes and take any other preventative measures that may be called for: (917) 210-1063
