COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE
COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE
When something like the coronavirus hits the news, it can make us worry about everyday decisions. At Apex Health Spine & Sport we have always valued the safety and health of our patients, staff and community. With that in mind, we are asking patients and visitors that are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath or exposure to CoVID-19 to not enter our facility. Please call us so we can reschedule your appointment. We remain open with limited business hours to help serve your urgent chiropractic needs. Physical Therapy will be closed until May 2020.
As a healthcare provider we are doing the following to help prevent the spread of CoVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) and keep the clinic safe for our patients:
Monitoring the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) recommendations.
Requiring staff to stay home if symptomatic or if they have been exposed to anyone that has been diagnosed with CoVID- 19. Taking temperature of staff daily even if no symptoms.
Educating and emphasizing respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene to all employees.
Increased sanitization of frequently touched surfaces as well as maintaining our high standards of sanitizing between patients.
Limiting non-essential staff and visitors AND REQUIRING SOCIAL DISTANCING WITHIN OUR CLINIC.
Here are some tips to help you and your family feel safe and ready to face the world:
Wash, wash, wash your hands. Did you know soap and water are more effective than hand sanitizer (and apparently easier to find right now)? To really get rid of any germs, wash for at least 20 seconds – which just happens to be how long it takes to hum Row-Row-Row Your Boat three times.
Be sneeze- and cough-courteous. Coughing or sneezing into the inner crook of your arm catches the droplets that would otherwise end up in the air or on the surfaces around you. The COVID-19 virus is transmitted through droplets, not through breathing, so this is important.
Don’t touch your face! The easiest way to get sick (with any kind of virus) is to introduce germs from your hands to mucus membranes – like your eyes, nose and mouth.
Be on your best behavior. Keep yourself in good shape by getting plenty of sleep, being physically active, drinking lots of water and eating nutritious foods. A stressed body is a weak body, so manage your stress through exercise, meditation or conversation with a trusted friend.
Self-care matters. Caring for yourself is the best thing you can do for your overall health.
We strive to provide complete care for our patients. We are in-plan with most insurance companies.
We will do our best to accommodate your busy schedule. Schedule an appointment today!
