Jupiter Internal Medicine/ Dr. Boss had a PPE/disinfecting training session with the staff.
All our patients are told over the phone to wear a mask, if not, one will be provided. We have a staff member in the corridor to check the patient’s in. A mask will be provided if the patient does not have one, a none touch infrared thermometer is used to take their temperature. A questionnaire must be answered. The questionnaire asks if they have traveled? If so, where? Any cold symptoms? Cough? Fevers? Been exposed? The patient then signs the form. The patient even gets to keep the pen!
Currently, all URI symptoms are triaged before any appointments are made. Patients see our policies in place and they are comfortable coming back to the office.
In closing, we only have two providers in the office on each day. The other providers are home doing telemedicine visits through Healow/ECW.
We need to be open. Patients need us for other medical conditions.
