We have reconfigured our clinic to keep people with COVID-19 or related symptoms in separate, designated areas.
Each person entering the Health Services, including staff, will be screened for symptoms of respiratory infection (fever, cough, shortness of breath) and have their temperatures checked with no-contact infrared thermometers.
Each person who enters our campus must wear a mask, including all patients and employees. All staff members will wear a mask while in the building and outside on while on campus.
To help keep our patients, staff, and community safe, we are temporarily limiting visitors in our clinic. No visitors will be permitted except under special circumstances.
Staff and students are expected to be 6 feet apart as much as possible. Many of our waiting areas have been reconfigured or eliminated to help make physical distancing easier.
High touch areas will be disinfected regularly throughout the day. Exam areas will also be disinfected to appropriate standards. Multiple alcohol-based hand rub stations are accessible. Any person entering the building will be asked to clean their hands with alcohol-based hand rub.
All patients will be admitted into the Health Services by appointment only. These appointments include patients coming in for labs. Scheduling everyone an appointment helps to keep the flow and distancing of patients and staff controlled making a safer environment for everyone.
Health Services is proud to offer secure private visits through Team Meeting. This allows you to communicate with a health care provider without having to leave home. Some care will still require you to be seen in the building, but many things can be managed without having to step outside! To see if your medical needs are amenable to telemedicine, call 386-226-7917 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . An experienced nurse will be able to help determine how best to use this resource and help set up an appointment. Later this summer, online scheduling for telemedicine will be implemented.
Coming late this summer Health Services will be offering high tech check-in for your appointment option! Low to no-touch check in options will be available so that you can check in for your appointment, upload insurance information, and be notified when we are ready to see you electronically. Our goal is to eliminate the need for waiting rooms as much as possible to allow for better physical distancing and to limit the potential time of exposure.
