During a Pandemic
1,000 sq. feet, Airflow, Temperature checks, Masks and face shields
When you arrive in our airy 1,000 sq. foot loft space, you will notice it may be windy! We love air circulation to disperse any possible escaped droplets, so we keep our windows and door open, have the overhead fan and two room air circulator fans running (bring your sweatshirt). Typically there are only two people at a time in the space, but there may be as many as four on occasion. Physical Therapy is not a socially distanced activity, so we take extreme precautions. We have to keep ourselves and our families safe too!
We will take your temperature with a touch-less thermometer and ask you if you have been feeling sick in the last two weeks or have been in contact with anyone sick in the last two weeks.
You will then be invited to wash your hands at our sink by the door. We use KN95 masks at all times (we will provide one for you) and your PT will also wear a face shield over their mask. If you feel short of breath, we use a fingertip pulse oximeter to measure the oxygen saturation in your blood. If you are breathing hard we will ask you to step outside the office into the hallway for some deep breaths.
We use hospital grade disinfection. After your visit, 15 minutes are scheduled to sanitize the entire space. We wipe down our waiting area chairs, any and all equipment used, and wash our rubber bands after every use. We use mats for laying on the floor and the mats are disinfected after every patient. It is very likely you will see your therapist wash their hands more than once during your visit.
We feel comfortable with the precautions we have taken to keep ourselves and our patients safe. So far, the patients have given us very positive feedback that they feel safe in our care. That said, please feel free to ask us questions! Also, we still have online appointments available!
