Patient Screening Guidelines

Screening Questions

Please ask all patients the following questions when they arrive at the practice and as part of appointment confirmation calls. This should follow your warm welcome/greeting. 

  1. Are you experiencing or have you recently experienced flu-like symptoms or a respiratory infection?
  2. Have you been in contact with anyone diagnosed with coronavirus? 

If a patient answers “yes” to either question, please reschedule the appointment at least eight (8) weeks out. 

As we treat patients, emergency or otherwise, consider the following:

Patient Self-Reports 

If a patient is present in your practice and self-reports symptoms or a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, please complete the Incident Reporting System found in the right sidebar on our internal coronavirus webpage. All reported information will be kept strictly confidential and only available to select leaders who have a need to know.
