OPENING UP AFTER COVID
Hello dear Pelvic Plus Physio Clients,
I am pleased to say that as of Monday, June 1st the clinic has resumed in-person appointments. On May 27, 2020 the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario published their guidelines for resuming a graduated, safe return to in-person appointments. Virtual care will remain available during this transition period and beyond. In order to ensure all of our health and safety, there will be additional infection control practices in accordance with these guidelines.
I am currently taking bookings for both previous and new clients for in-person and virtual appointments.
Please read through the directions below so you know what to expect when booking your next appointment:
PRE-SCREENING: There will be mandatory screening for all patients and the therapist on booking of appointments and on arrival to the clinic. In-person care at the clinic will be provided when you and the therapist have decided that the benefits outweigh the risks.
FACEMASKS & PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE): Please wear a mask to the clinic if you have one. A surgical or cloth mask is fine. If you do not have a mask, you will be provided with one. I will also be wearing a mask and gown.
ON ARRIVAL & DURING TREATMENT: On entering the clinic, please immediately wash your hands in the bathroom directed to the right. You will then be taken directly to the treatment room. Please do not bring extra people to the appointment unless necessary. There will be hand sanitizer in the reception and treatment room.
STAGGERED TREATMENT TIMES & PUNCTUALITY: Treatment times will be staggered to prevent patients from crossing paths in the common area, and to allow for extra time between appointments for the additional sanitization procedures to be performed. It is therefore important to be on time for your appointment. If you are running late for your appointment, please call ahead to determine the best plan of action before entering the clinic.
INCREASED SANITIZATION: In addition to routine cleaning, all surfaces that have come into contact with the patient and therapist will be sanitized with hospital grade sanitizer that has been approved by Health Canada
PATIENT DOCUMENTS: Whenever possible, patients will be asked to print and complete questionnaires and forms prior to coming to the clinic to prevent the need to share writing materials. These can either be returned electronically or brought to your actual appointment.
I am greatly looking forward to seeing you all again, and to helping you back on your path to achieving your health goals in the safest way possible!

Very best regards,
Jodi Forster-Molstad, PT
Clinic Owner, Physiotherapist
