Our office has opened up to allow routine visits now as of May 4, 2020. Telemedicine is still an option and has been covered well by insurance and Medicare.
COVID-19 precautions will still be in effect with social distancing, hand washing, and face-mask protocols.
Please wear your own mask to your visit as the offices only have a limited supply to offer those that forget or don’t have a mask.
We are aware that many of our patients are concerned about the Coronavirus. As always, Northwest Ohio Center for Pelvic Rehabilitation & Wellness is maintaining the highest standards of hygiene and sterilization in our licensed medical facility. The health and well-being of our patients and employees remains our highest priority.
As long as allowed by the authorities, the office will remain open to treat patients. Those that are 60 years and older without an emergency or operative problem will be asked to reschedule within 2 to 4 weeks to help protect those that are older from the virus.
Per the Ohio state board and local medical societies, as of now:
All elective surgeries will be postponed for the next 2 to 4 weeks. This will be reevaluated on a weekly basis.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have increased efforts to protect our staff and all who visit us. These efforts include:
Additional cleaning procedures in all areas, including increasing the frequency of these cleaning routines – with an emphasis on frequent disinfecting of high-touch areas.
Placing hand sanitizers in key areas, including the lobby, treatment rooms and high-traffic areas.
Educating our staff on the specific procedures recommended by the CDC to prevent transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
Mandating that our staff stay home and seek medical care if they exhibit any flu-like symptoms.
Ceasing business travel and postponing group events.
Rescheduling appointments without cancellation fee for patients who feel unwell.
Rescheduling appointments for high risk individuals, including older patients or those with underlying health conditions, without cancellation fee.
Only patients will be allowed back for visits. Family and friends will need to wait in their automobiles, with the exception of those assisting comprehension of surgical consultations in the elderly.
As of 3/16/2020, elective surgeries are still being allowed to proceed, but this may change day to day. No charges will be incurred for rescheduling of surgeries to a later date.
The Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following precautionary measures and guidelines to keep you healthy and to prevent the spread of Coronavirus:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Use an alcohol-based sanitizer if soap is not available
Keep away from others who are or may be sick
Avoid touching surfaces in public places
Avoid crowded locations and events
Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
Clean and disinfect household objects & surfaces in your home
Avoid all non-essential travel
If you are experiencing flu like symptoms, including cough or fever, please call your primary care physician or urgent care in order to safeguard those around you. According to the CDC, if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider immediately. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and the CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment at a later date with no cancellation fee.
The safety of our patients is our number one priority. If you have any concerns, please contact our office.
