At FORM Ortho, the safety and welfare of our patients and staff are our number one priority. We have been continually reviewing CDC recommendations and updating our preventive and responsive actions accordingly. In an effort to continue to provide care to those that need it, while also keeping the health of our patients and staff a priority, we wanted to update you on some adjustments we have made within our practice during this unprecedented time.
As per multiple guidelines, we have greatly enhanced our disinfecting techniques.
We have complied whenever possible with social distancing guidelines.
FORM Ortho will remain open and will be treating patients. We’re offering this service to help patients avoid crowded waiting rooms in urgent care centers and emergency rooms.
We are rigorously screening staff and patients on an ongoing basis so that those with any risk factors for COVID19 are given the opportunity to reschedule or participate in a telemedicine visit if appropriate.
We urge you to stay home if you are sick and continue to practice good hand hygiene, and cover coughs.
If you are sick and/or have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, contact your primary care provider immediately. If you have any of these symptoms, we also ask you to call our office to reschedule your appointment.
As CDC recommendations are updated, we will make adjustments accordingly. Likewise, we will do the same for any local and state health department directives to ensure the continued safety of our patients.
