ANNOUNCING OUR RE-OPENING AND IN-OFFICE PATIENT POLICIES
Drs. Abramow, Landsman, Shapiro and Zaiff value our patients well being and safety. Your health and safety as well as our staffs, is our top priority. Our in-office safety policies are aligned with the latest guidelines issued by the CDC and local government. Additionally, our office is accredited and inspected by the Joint Comission, which is another layer of compliance and safety.
New safety policies for patients:
Patients will undergo screening questions and receive comprehensive instructions about our new policies prior to their appointment.
Patients will be instructed to come to the office wearing a mask.
Patient temperatures will be checked via forehead scanners upon arrival to the office.
We have reorganized our offices to maximize social distancing and cleanliness, and we have altered workflows to allow patients to wait outside or until their exam room is ready. Patients will be contacted via text message or phone call when the provider is ready for the visit to begin.
We are asking for patients to arrive at their appointment alone. For children and adult patients who require a caretaker, one adult may accompany the patient. Patients who are sick or have had exposures to COVID-19 will be rescheduled. Offices will be cleaned and disinfected frequently throughout the day. Tele-podiatry appointments remain available for patients who prefer to be seen virtually.
We will be limiting the amount of daily appointment slots by 50% to limit patient to patient contact with priority given to essential and emergent patients.
New safety policies for office & staff:
All of our staff have completed training on all new workflows and infection prevention measures.
All of our clinical staff will be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during patient encounters to include masks and gloves.
Our exam rooms are sanitized before and after every patient visit.
All Manhattan Podiatry team members will be screened for symptoms and/or fever daily prior to coming to work.
It is our goal to minimze social contact with our staff as well as with other patients.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION AND PATIENCE AS WE ADAPT TO THESE NEW OPERATING PROCEDURES AND POLICIES DURING THIS NEW NORMAL.
WISHING YOU GOOD HEALTH!
