A Message from Dynamic Physical Therapy
As the concerns about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) intensify, we thought it would be helpful to share what we are doing to make your therapy appointment as safe as possible.
The first step we took was to educate our employees using validated resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the US Department of Health.The second step we have taken is to intensify our housekeeping & infection control procedures to assure that we have minimized contact with any thing or areas that could harbor harmful bacteria or viruses. In doing so we are asking all individuals who enter our clinic to:
- Apply our hand-sanitizer prior to completing paperwork, signing-in for the appointment, taking a seat in our reception area or starting treatment
- Practice good hand hygiene (frequent handwashing) as well as good cough and sneeze etiquette (cover mouth with tissue when coughing or sneezing and deposit the tissue in a hands-free trash can or cover your mouth with your elbow if tissues are not immediately available). There are places to wash your hands available in the clinic and restrooms.
- Apply our hand-sanitizer when departing the clinicThe third step we are taking is to adapt our schedule to accommodate our immunologically compromised patients including but not limited to the frail or elderly.
The final step we are taking is to continue to educate our workforce and our patient community regarding the COVID-19. We are staying up on all information provided by the CDC and other reliable sources. At this time the active cases in Michigan are very minimal, but we know that change very quickly and we are prepared.
We will continue to employ procedures to minimize the spread of COVID-19 according to the CDC and other credible authorities and will keep you informed of any changes in protocols.
