Dear Valued Patient,
We understand the growing concern about Coronavirus/COVID-19 in our community. CurPoint Orthopedic is taking a pro-active approach by utilizing precautions in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) & University of Washington guidelines to keep our patients and staff at a low risk of exposure to communicable diseases.
Our in-clinic process involves screening patients and other relevant persons for recent travel, cough, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and/or a temperature above 100 degrees. If any of these symptoms are present, we will advise that such individuals see their family physician or present to an urgent care center for COVID-19 testing.
We allow no more than two people in the reception area at any one time, maintaining the recommended 6-ft distance between any two persons. With the exception of children, we kindly insist that the patient’s friends and family wait in the KOMO Plaza lobby.
Once patients are screened, they will immediately be placed in a disinfected exam holding room (with no more than two persons per room). Once the examination is to begin, all personnel will be directed to our large disinfected examination room where the interview and physical examination will take place, with all office personnel wearing surgical scrubs, surgical caps, gloves and surgical masks. We have found that patients are comforted by our process as we have their best interest at heart.
At the conclusion of every clinic visit, the entire office is deep cleaned in preparation for the next patient.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at 206.735.7322 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
