COVID-19 POLICY

Being a one-on-one service provider has been advantageous during these weird times but the safety of both patients and staff is paramount. Our clinic follows stringent cleaning procedures before and after each appointment.

Erin Minogue Physiotherapy Policy and Procedures regarding the COVID 19 Pandemic are developed and reviewed regularly based on the best up to date information and directives available from the Government of Saskatchewan Chief Medical Health Officer, Saskatchewan College of Physical Therapists and Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) regulations.

Screening

I. Every client will be screened prior to in-person clinic visits. Active screening is the preferred method which involves an automated online clinical survey received 2 hours prior to their  scheduled appointment time via email.

 

If a client does not have access to email and/or  does not fill out the online survey prior to their scheduled visit, the client will be actively  screened upon arrival at clinic site.

 

The client will need to physically fill out the screening  tool via tablet and/or computer or the clinician will verbally ask each question so the survey  results can be uploaded to their respective electronic file.

 

II. Individuals with mild symptoms of COVID 19 are legally required to self isolate and must  not be in the practice setting, regardless of vaccination status.  

Masking

All client's are recommended to continue to wear a mask during in-person Physiotherapy services to protect the health and safety of the vulnerable sectors such as children and/or immunocompromised individuals.

 

Masks are provided at each business location for client convenience.
