Prescription of COVID-19

The COVID-19 situation is changing hour by hour, anxiety levels are high but at this time we should turn to experts to shine clarity on the rapidly shifting landscape. Below is a collection of some information we have taken as precautionary measures abided by all our Physiotherapists, other team members, and Patients in Physio Rehab Care.

Social Distancing: Our Rehab have specific sick and wellness spaces, and when we do have patients in the waiting rooms, we make sure they are practicing social distancing and that we don’t have large populations of patients in the Rehab at any one time. Our Physiotherapists maintain the same practice while visiting patients in their house or workplaces.

Personal Protective Equipment or PPE Kit: Our teams wear the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times while treating patients to keep them protected, we also ask our patients wear masks as well during their sessions.

Screening Patients and Staff Upon Arrival: We additionally screen our staff for fevers and symptoms every day upon arrival to work. We log their temperatures daily and have a strict process to follow for employees whose temperatures are out of range. We also screen all patients and visitors for fever and symptoms of COVID-19 upon entering our Rehab Care.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures: Between patients, our office teams clean using the products that are government-approved for use against the virus that causes COVID-19.  We have also increased the frequency and types of cleanings we get by our professional cleaning partners to ensure our practices are safe to visit every day at any time.

Face Masks or Coverings Worn at All Visits: This applies to people over age 2 who can “medically tolerate” a mask or face covering. We ask that all people having sessions with our Rehab Care should be wearing a face mask or nose and mouth cover.

Hand Hygiene and Sanitizer: When you’re removing the cloth face-covering after use, Physio Rehab Care also urges people to be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth. You should wash your hands and use Sanitizers after removing the mask.

Limitations on Visitors: We also ask patients to have only 1 visitor with them during appointments as necessary and this person must wear a mask as well. We understand some people need assistance getting to and during their appointments. Rest assured, if medically necessary, we can make accommodations. Please be sure your attendant follows the guidelines we’ve put in place to keep everyone safe and healthy.
