Altitude PT clinic changes with response to the changing times of COVID-19
Altitude Physical Therapy has been updating their operations in line with the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and safety of staff and patients is our number one priority. We are currently following all recommendations coming from the CDC as well as individual county health departments. With regards to the recent changes and statewide stay at home order, Physical Therapy is deemed an essential service. The following are changes are currently in effect in all of our six clinic locations:
- Physical Therapists and front desk staff wearing gloves at all times (while supplies last)
- Staff to wear face masks (while supplies last)
- Frequently touched surfaces being disinfected every 30 minutes
- Screening patients via confirmation calls for fever, cough, travel to high country (Eage, Summit, Pitkin and Gunnison counties), and international travel
- Requiring all patients to use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the clinic
- Transitioning patients to telehealth that don't currently REQUIRE hands-on care
- Adjusting staffing to limit exposure and maintain guidelines provided by the CDC
At this time we have reduced our direct patient care appointments in the clinic. Post-operative patients and those deemed essential by their physical therapist can continue to be seen in the clinic.
We are encouraging all patients to schedule telehealth visits through HippoHealth to ensure uninterrupted treatment in your plan of care.
If you have upcoming scheduled appointments and have not already discussed appointment changes with our staff, please call in to your Altitude office to confirm your appointment date and time.
