COVID-19 Policy for Pediatric Patients

COVID-19 Policy For Pediatric Patients

If your child starts to show symptoms of fever, cough, muscle aches, or fatigue, please call our office for guidance. Do not come in person unless explicitly instructed to do so. We are committed to serving you, while also working to maintain the safety of others.

Because COVID-19 and the flu are spread by the transmission of tiny droplets containing germs that can contaminate the air and various surfaces, it is extremely important that people who show symptoms stay away from others (including other family members). Make sure to cover coughs and sneezes, wear a face mask when possible, and continue to wash hands frequently with soap and water.

 

Steps for receiving pediatric care if COVID-19 infection is suspected:

  1. Call the office for initial assessment of symptoms and direction.
  2. If told to come to the office, wait in your car and notify staff via phone that you have arrived.
  3. A nurse will come assess your risk for COVID-19. If your risk is considered low, you will be given a mask and be taken to an exam room or instructed to check in as normal.
  4. If your risk is determined to be high, you will be directed about how to receive testing from INSIDE YOUR CAR.

Providing exceptional care for your family is our top priority, and that has informed our procedural processes. We want you to know that after each exam, exam rooms are disinfected thoroughly for the safety of everyone involved. We strive always to care for you and your families as if you were our own, and we will continue to finetune our procedures and provide updated information as it becomes available. Thanks for your cooperation.
