After careful consideration and study of the trusted resources available, we at Colorado Spine Therapy have decided to re-open our clinic on a limited base again on April 27, 2020; two physical therapists initially, one on a part-time base. Each patient has a choice between an in-clinic or a Telehealth treatment. IMPORTANT; PLEASE READ BELOW!
The Department of Homeland Security has defined physical therapy as an essential service (see page 5: https://www.cisa.gov/sites/default/files/publications/CISA-Guidance-on-Essential-Critical-Infrastructure-Workers-1-20-508c.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1nrXpoPEIg40jdn4UH-k_TTeZK8-SAP4SyDtWc85xnicLOTjz1tN6O-4E) The reason for this is to keep patients suffering from joint or spine pain, or other musculoskeletal problems out of emergency rooms and doctor's offices during the coronavirus crisis. Our primary goal is to keep you safe, mobile and healthy.
Based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other trusted health organizations, we are taking significant steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our clinic and community. To ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff, we have stepped up the precautions that we take every day as follows:
MASK WEARING AND INTENSIVE DAILY CLEANING
- Your physical therapist will wear a mask for the duration of your treatment session. We will require all patients to wear a mask as well. A mask will be available if you do not have one to wear.
- We wipe down all treatment room surfaces and exercise equipment with disinfecting wipes or spray disinfectant between each patient contact.
- We wash our hands for the recommended 20-second duration with soap and water or use disinfectant gel between each patient.
- We change pillow slips and other linens after each patient contact.
- We wipe down frequently touched surfaces such as the reception counter, credit card reader, and door handles with disinfecting wipes regularly throughout the day.
- We have disinfecting gel and tissue available for use.
EDUCATING TEAM MEMBERS ABOUT COVID-19
- We are providing updated information as we consult local, state, and national public health organizations about recognizing symptoms and other precautions that reduce risk.
- Staff is instructed to stay home if they are not feeling well or have been around people who are sick until it is deemed safe to return to work.
ASKING PATIENTS TO RESCHEDULE THEIR APPOINTMENT OR SCHEDULE A TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENT IF THEY HAVE HAD ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Cold or flu-like symptoms (i.e., fever, cough, congestion, or difficulty breathing) in the last 14 days
- Have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or live in or have recently traveled from an area with the ongoing spread of COVID-19
- We encourage patients to seek medical advice if you develop the symptoms mentioned above.
We can assure you that we are remaining updated with the Public Health Guidelines from the CDC and Denver County and will keep you abreast of new developments as they are communicated to us.
