A Note to Our Patients on our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Preparedness
All About Kids Pediatrics would like to assure you that the health of our patients and team members remains our top priority always. We are open for business and have taken proactive measures amid the situation of Coronavirus. We adhere to guidelines from the CDC, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and World Health Organization. We have increased our cleaning frequency. We are sanitizing the lobby’s surfaces, tables and door handles in the morning, at noon and professionally in the evening as well as sanitizing the same in exam rooms between all patients.
It is important for children to keep up with their vaccines as part overall defense against disease. In that light was are seeing well checks in the morning only to avoid exposure to any potential ill patients. We request if possible only one caregiver to accompany the child and to not bring along siblings. If this is not possible we will still be happy to see your child. Also absolutely no food or drink in the office. We are trying to minimize children’s hands directly touching their mucous membranes in our office.
Children do get sick and it is important for them to be seen by your own medical doctor and leave the UC and ER for those who need emergent care. If your child is sick with a mild fever of 100.4 or higher with respiratory symptoms, currently the CDC is recommending that you care for your child at home trying to isolate them from others in their own room. If however they have increased symptoms of irritability, persistent fever, concerns about ears or chest we are here and happy to see them. We are seeing ill children in the afternoon. We have also spaced out our appointments to respect social distancing. You also have the option to contact us from your car when you arrive and we will be happy to contact you when a room is available and take you directly back.
If you have concerns about a possible COVID 19 exposure and subsequent illness, we ask that you alert us about your concern. We can then direct you to appropriate care whether at our office or elsewhere.
We appreciate everyone’s consideration during this time.
