OUR RESPONSE & A PLAN FOR THE POST-COVID WORLD
Dear Metro Sports Friends and Family,
MSPT has remained and continues to be open for in-office physical therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic and also continues to offer Telehealth physical therapy for all patients. Physical therapy has always been classified as an essential service in New York State.
We have educated ourselves on recommended private practice guidelines from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and will continue to strive to be in constant compliance with New York State rules and regulations in regard to the operation of a small business such as ours. We also understand that the effects of the surrounding COVID-19 pandemic are always changing and we intend to evolve in alignment with all public health requirements.
In preparation of the phased New York re-opening, we would like to share our plan to always ensure the safety of our MSPT patients, staff, and our surrounding community.
OUR STEP BY STEP PLAN:
LIMITING OVERALL EXPOSURE:
We will strategically schedule appointments to maintain proper social distancing
Ample time will be provided between sessions to allow for necessary cleaning and transition
Patients will be asked to arrive ON TIME to their session (NOT EARLY)
Gloves will be provided for patient use if requested
Thorough cleaning of entire office and it's surfaces to be done after hours each day office is open
PATIENT SELF-ASSESSMENT PRIOR TO VISIT:
Patient will receive their customary appointment reminder via email or text
In addition, clients that are experiencing symptoms of any kind are advised to stay at home and not attend physical therapy
ARRIVING AT THE OFFICE FOR VISIT:
Patients are expected to be wearing a face mask or covering
We will provide masks for those in need
Patients will be encouraged to wash/sanitize hands immediately upon arrival and frequently during treatment
DURING THE TREATMENT:
Therapist will be wearing a mask
Therapist will be wearing gloves when appropriate or requested by the patient
BEFORE & AFTER EACH SESSION:
