WHAT WE’RE DOING…

In order to minimize the exposure of COVID-19, measures are being implemented to ensure your safety.

Screening patients:

In light of the current coronavirus situation, we are conducting additional screening to ensure your safety and the safety of others.

Have you…

  • Traveled outside of Hawaii in the lats 14 days?
  • Been exposed to an individual with known or suspected COVID-19?
  • Had any symptoms of respiratory infection? (i.e. fever over 100.4 degrees, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose)

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, please let our staff know immediately so we can reschedule your appointment. You will be advised to contact your physician and to postpone therapy for 14 days.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures:

Using medical grade cleaning solution to clean all equipment and patient treatment tables after each use. The waiting room is cleaned with the same solution every 2 hours.

Soiled and frequently touched surfaces can be reservoirs for pathogens, resulting in a continued transmission to people. Therefore, extra attention is paid to surfaces that are touched most often by different individuals. As part of standard infection control practices in the clinic/office, routine cleaning will be continued:

  • Cleaning and disinfection of high contact surfaces such as:
    • Doorknobs/handles and push plates – Our doors are remaining open to alleviate touching
    • Light switches
    • iPads, stylus
    • Desks and chairs
    • Break room tables and chairs
    • Sink faucets
    • Handles on gym equipment
    • Shared telephones
    • Shared computer keyboards and mice
    • Treatment tables (before and after each patient use)
    • Game Ready equipment
    • Metal down frames/walls where patients stretch
    • Dust-and-wet mopping or aut0-scrubbing floors
    • Personal cell phones
    • Lockers/shower room
  • Vacuuming of entryways and high traffic areas
  • Removing trash
  • Wiping heat and air conditioner vents
  • Spot cleaning walls

  • Cleaning spills
  • Cover treatment tables and use pillow protectors, discard or launder coverings after each use

HOW YOU CAN HELP…
