The health and safety of our clients and staff is Back in Motion’s #1 priority.
Several weeks ago, Back in Motion made the difficult decision to suspend in-clinic appointments, to prevent the spread of coronavirus to our clients and staff. Now that the COVID-19 restrictions have been eased, we have resumed in-clinic services on May 19, 2020.
Our Internal Health & Safety Committee has developed and implemented a comprehensive Safety Plan, to make our clinics safe for clients and staff. We have made changes to the facilities, operational and administrative processes:
What should you know before coming to your appointment?
Clients booking an appointment will be asked the following questions:
1. Are you experiencing any of the following?:
a. Mild to moderate shortness of breath
b. Inability to lie down because of difficulty breathing
c. Chronic health conditions that you are having difficulty managing because of difficulty breathing
2. Do you have flu, chills, cough, shortness of breath or COVID-like symptoms? COVID symptoms include fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat and painful swallowing, stuffy or runny nose, loss of sense of smell, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, loss of appetite, vomiting or diarrhea.
3. Have you travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days?
4. Have you provided care or had close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID 19?
- If “Yes”, did you wear the required and/or recommended PPE according to the type of duties you were performing (e.g., goggles, gloves, mask and gown or N95 with aerosol generating medical procedures when you had close contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19?
5. Have you been tested for COVID-19 and the results are pending?
If you answer “yes” to any of the above questions, you will be directed to speak with our COVID Team Lead, to ensure it is safe for you to come to in-clinic appointments.
Healthcare workers who have been treating COVID-19 patients, strictly following PPE protocols and are asymptomatic, may book appointments in-clinic, and will be asked to follow the guidelines outlined below.
As part of the Plan to keep everyone safe, we are asking the following of our clients:
Be kind. Do your part!
