Response to COVID-19: An Important Message To All Of Our Patients.
In relation to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19 both nationally and internationally, many of you may be feeling uneasy. We wanted to reassure you that we are taking all necessary steps to ensure that we continue to support the health and safety of our valued patients and staff. We are closely watching the recommendations of NSW Health, and will continue to keep you informed of what our clinic is doing to manage things as best we can.
As an accredited practice we have always been vigilant with our practice cleanliness and hygiene, including the use of disposable face sheets and gowns as well as washing all our shorts and linen. We have strict handwashing protocols between each consultation which we will continue to follow.
Due to growing concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus we have further enhanced our infection control procedures by:
- wiping down all hard surfaces regularly, including doorknobs, light switches, keyboards, gym equipment etc.
- we have placed a big bottle of hand sanitizer at the front desk and ask all our staff and patients to sanitize their hands when entering and leaving the practice.
Please adhere to the following guidelines with respect to attendance of your appointments at Maroubra Road Physiotherapy.
- If you have any of the following symptoms including sore throat, cough, fever or shortness of breath, we ask that you reschedule your appointment with us. It is recommended that you follow the guidelines of the NSW health department.
- If you have recently been to any overseas country, we ask that you do not attend the clinic for 14 days following your return to Australia. Please call us for clarification of your particular circumstances if you wish to.
Thank you for understanding.
