180 Physical Therapy will continue to make health and safety our number one priority for our patients and staff during this difficult time and will make sure we are doing our part if preventing the spread of this illness. We are currently providing both on-site physical therapy and telehealth services for new and existing patients. These telehealth services include video visits, virtual check-ins, email, and phone calls for those patients who would prefer to receive their PT from home and have proven very effective in allowing us to continue to follow up with patients regarding exercise progression.
180 PT policies to promote a safe and healthy environment:
- Modifying scheduling to limit number of patients in clinic.
- 1 on 1 treatment.
- Personal protective equipment including masks will be required by staff and patients.
- Patient screening prior to each appointment including forehead temperature check (non-contact), inquiring of any symptoms or any close contact with anyone who is sick.
- Staff screenings daily including temperature checks.
- “Patient’s only”- no visitors in order to limit people in waiting room and maintain social distancing.
- Disinfecting all contact surfaces as well as all treatment tables, chairs, and equipment before and after each patient use.
- Handwashing/sanitizer before and after every patient treatment.
- No sign-in required
What we ask of our patients:
- Call and reschedule your appointment for any of the following reasons:
- If you feel sick or if someone you have been in close contact with feels sick.
- If you have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with Covid 19.
- We are requiring patients to wear a mask to your appointment.
- Forehead temperature screenings (non-contact) will be taken by our staff at time of arrival.
- Please use our hand sanitizer located in the lobby when entering for your appointment.
- Please cough or sneeze into your elbow or tissue.
- Feel free to use our sink for handwashing at any time throughout your treatment.
- Abide by social distancing during your treatment as well as throughout your day.
Additionally, the physical therapy profession is hoping to do our part in minimizing the strain on our hospitals and physician offices so we ask all patients who may be considering going to the emergency room or their family physician due to a musculoskeletal problem to contact us first for a consultation. No physician prescription is required to initiate physical therapy and we will be able to properly screen you either remotely via telehealth or on-site to determine if emergency care/PCP consult is required or if physical therapy would be of benefit.
We will continue to closely monitor all events regarding any changes to local/state/federal guidelines and will abide by all recommendations.
