To Our Valued Patients,
The team at CPRx, as well as myself, sincerely care about you. We want to inform you that although this daunting crisis is still upon us, we are still here for you. We are taking the recommended steps to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, or COVID-19, and keep our patients safe.
As an essential part of our healthcare system, we are open and seeing current and new patients, offering TELE-REHABILITATION and in-person social distancing options. We have altered our in person visits according to current CDC and Department of Health protocols and maintain social distancing within the clinic. We have also added TELE-REHABILITATION as an option.
We have made the decision to remain open for YOUR needs. This allows you to contact us instead of an ER visit or doctor’s appointment for circumstances related to physical injury or pain.
For your safety, we always clean our tables and equipment after each patient use. We are doing this with more diligence to all surfaces after a patient contacts them. The CDC recommends stronger decontamination cleaning during this time. We routinely use Cavicide to clean all surfaces that come into contact with human touch.
We are screening all patients, visitors, and staff daily for recent travel, fever, or signs of respiratory illness. If anyone has a fever or respiratory symptoms, we ask that you not come in, but call us or your doctor immediately. Of course, you should stay home for any infectious illness. If COVID-19 is suspected/confirmed you must not return to PT until your test is negative, or your physician clears you. This would be a good opportunity to take advantage of our TELE-REHABILITATION option.
