COVID-19 UPDATE! COVID-19 ¡Actualizar!
Connecticut Physical Therapy Specialists Remains Open
We recognize that you might be feeling overwhelmed with news about COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. Recent developments are understandably a source of concern for many in our community. As health care providers, we always consider your health and safety our number one priority. We believe that continuing to participate in your physical therapy sessions will help you stay healthy by keeping your pain levels low, your activity level high, and your body strong and resilient.
Based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization, we’re taking significant steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our clinics and community. To ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff, we have always utilized UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS every day and we like to share them with you.
INTENSIVE DAILY CLEANING
We wipe down all surfaces with disinfecting wipes or spray disinfectant between each patient/client contact. We wash our hands for the recommended duration with soap and water or use disinfectant gel between each patient/client. We change pillow slips and other linens after each patient/client contact. The front desk staff wipes down frequently touched surfaces including but not limited to the reception counter, credit card reader, and door handles, and waiting room chairs with disinfecting wipes several times a day. We have disinfecting gel and tissue available at the front desk and at all workstations.
EDUCATING TEAM MEMBERS ABOUT COVID-19
We’re providing updated information as we consult local, state, and national public health organizations about recognizing symptoms and other precautions that reduce risk. All non-health care related staff have received additional training in cleaning and other best practices. Staff are instructed to stay home if they aren’t feeling well or have been around people who are sick until it is deemed safe to return.
Connecticut Physical Therapy Specialists will continue to stay open to serve your health care needs per Public Health Guidelines. We look forward to continuing to provide physical therapy to keep you in optimal health as we navigate this trying time. We can assure you that we are remaining updated with the Public Health Guidelines from the CDC and local government agencies and will keep you abreast of new developments as they are communicated to us.
Everything we’re doing has one goal: ensuring the health and safety of our patients and team members. We are a great community of caring individuals, we will weather this storm and keep moving! Do not hesitate to call if you have any questions about your care at Connecticut Physical Therapy Specialists.
