Physiotherapy Clinic in Ashbourne, Co. Meath
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (updated 21 October 2020)
The good news is that both clinics are open and we can provide on-site face to face physiotherapy as well as online consultations (even during Level 5 lockdown). We have taken the guidance of the Department of Health, H.S.E. and our physiotherapy professional body (I.S.C.P.) in doing this.
However, we have brought in some new measures in order to protect you and our staff, which include:
-Reducing the number of physiotherapists working together in order to reduce the number of people in the clinic at one time. Staggering of appointment times.
-All classes are online (although we can have one person in the clinic for a class).
-Longer appointments (e.g. women’s or men’s health, vertigo) are split into an online consultation followed by a face to face appointment. This is in order to reduce direct contact time.
-All patients will be screened and given instructions prior to attending.
-Staff are screened and their temperature is taken regularly.
-Please arrive for your appointment at the EXACT time. Knock on the door and wait until we let you in. Try not to arrive early or late as we do not have a waiting area at the moment.
-Your physiotherapist will be wearing a mask and apron and you will be asked to sanitise your hands and you will be required to keep your mask on for the whole session. Your physiotherapist may wear goggles.
-Your temperature may be taken.
-Social distancing will be maintained when at all possible during the treatment session.
-Payment will be contactless (as if paying over the phone).
-Standardised disinfection of the touched surfaces throughout the clinic will be completed after each client.
-These guidelines will be updated regularly.
However, if you are in a high risk category or would prefer not to attend the clinic, we suggest an online video or phone consultation instead. If we think that the session can by conducted online, we may suggest that that is done.
We will not see the following patients in the clinic:
-Those who have travelled overseas in the last 14 days.
-Those who have had direct contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the last 14 days.
-Those that are currently required to self-isolate.
-Anyone displaying symptoms such as a temperature/fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, any other respiratory symptom, fatigue, tummy problems, loss of taste or smell.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on 018352043.
Thanking you all.
