At River Heights Physiotherapy we care tremendously about your health and safety. We are continually keeping up to date with current health mandates. Although mask usage is not longer mandatory in most settings in Manitoba, it is still mandated by Shared Health in health care settings. Please come with a mask. If you don't have one on you, we sell them for $1. Other things we are doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
All patients are screened prior to their appointment. Appointments are re-scheduled or switched to Virtual Physio if a patient fails the screening tool.
All staff are screened daily and will stay home for the required amount of time if they fail the screening tool.
Treatment rooms are private. We are asking patients to enter the clinic right at their appointment time. Patients are brought directly into the treatment room as opposed to sitting in the waiting are. Friends and family will not be able to wait in the waiting room but if needed they can go into the treatment room with you.
All patients are asked to clean their hands upon entry into the clinic and before leaving their treatment rooms. Hand sanitizer is available at the front door and in all treatment rooms. We also have 2 sinks for handwashing with single use paper towel for hand drying.
As usual, all staff will thoroughly wash their hands between tasks and each patient contact.
All treatment room surfaces, equipment, and door handles are cleaned with a Health Canada approved disinfectant between each patient.
Cleaning schedules to disinfect other door handles and surfaces commonly touched will been increased to multiple times throughout the day.
If you are attending for jaw treatment and prefer no intra-oral treatment with a gloved hand please let us know. There are multiple alternative treatment options.
We are committed to working together to keep our community safe. Should you feel more comfortable you can also access physio from the comfort of your own home with a Virtual Physio appointment. For more info please click here.
If you have any further questions about the safety measures we are taking please feel free to send your questions to email@example.com or call the office at 204-987-9222.
