Physical Therapy Services and Coronavirus
How Performing Arts PT is Protecting Patients and Staff
The new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which causes the coronavirus infectious disease COVID-19, as named by the World Health Organization, is disrupting life as usual and is exacting a visible human and economic toll. This advisory contains information on suggested personal preventive and protective measures, what we are doing at this time regarding clinic hygiene, and physical therapy services.
STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE SICK
A key point is keeping people who are ill away from other people. Therefore, we have instructed any staff feeling ill to remain at home. We ask the same of any patients feeling ill. Limit contact with people in general that may appear sick and if you are sick with respiratory symptoms and fever, seek advice from your primary care doctor.
PRACTICE PROPER HAND & WRIST HYGIENE
Wash your hands – and your wrists often. Staff regularly wash their hands between patients, or wear gloves, but we are placing extra emphasis on this. We ask patients to wash their hands, or use hand sanitizer, before and after treatment.
COVER YOUR COUGHS & SNEEZES WITH A TISSUE
Please cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If no tissue is handy, sneeze or cough into a bent elbow. Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing regularly.
AVOID TOUCHING YOUR EYES, NOSE OR MOUTH
People frequently touch their eyes, nose or mouth without even realizing it. Try and eliminate this behavior, particularly after touching objects or being around someone who is coughing or sneezing.
CLEANING & DISINFECTION IN OUR CENTER
We have always practiced good cleaning and disinfecting protocols and have increased the frequency and depth of those efforts. Rest assured that we are paying extra attention to items that are frequently touched.
We are open for physical therapy services!
We continue to offer PT services. We have private treatment rooms and exercise areas. If you are interested in having a Telehealth visit with one of our doctors of physical therapy, please contact us to arrange this. Water therapy classes have been cancelled until further notice.
We thank you for your patience as we all work through this together. Remember, if you are not ill, it is very important to continue eating well and exercising. We are your partners in health and hope we can provide you with continuity in your physical therapy care, whether in the office, or online.
Dr. Melinda Bryan, PT, DPT and the staff of Performing Arts Physical Therapy
