COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update - Out East Therapy is Here for You!
By Krista Debler
June 25, 2020

As we plan to re-open for all services, Out East Therapy’s therapists and office staff have worked hard to provide a safe environment for everyone. While taking necessary precautions to stay healthy, it is understandable that you might have concerns about the safety of our environment. Rest assured; your kids are safe at Out East Therapy.

Below are a few additional procedures we have implemented to keep you and your kids healthy while they are being treated in our office.

 

Virtual Waiting Room - Decreases Exposure to COVID-19

Upon arriving at Out East Therapy, parents can check-in by texting their individual therapist and the therapist meet you outside of the office on the sidewalk. This eliminates the need to come into the clinic and decreases the amount of contact between your family and the therapists, while providing an additional layer of protection by using social distancing techniques recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

In addition, by using a virtual waiting room, Out East Therapy can provide hands-on therapy without compromising the safety of families by requiring you to sit in close quarters with other parents and children.

We are asking that parents wait outside (there is a bench out front) while your child is in session.

Upon Entry:

Children will leave anything they have in their hands with their parent/caregiver. Children’s temperatures will be taken with a “no touch, Infrared forehead thermometer” and hands will be sanitized.

 

Hand-Washing: The Biggest Defense Against COVID-19

At Out East Therapy, we know that washing hands is the best way we can help prevent the spread of Coronavirus and other bacteria, viruses, and germs. Because we provide services to medically fragile children, therapists have always practiced good sanitization procedures.

Upon entry of clinic, children will use Purell (provided by OUT EAST THERAPY) on their hands unless parent’ inform us of an allergy.

 

How Out East Therapy Keeps Our Office Clean and Safe from COVID-19

Out East Therapy has and will always continue to:

• Disinfect all clinic surfaces after each patient contact with an EPA approved disinfectant
• Disinfect any toys that come in contact with our patients’ mouths or hands
• Appropriately dispose of any tissues used during treatment sessions
• Ask all patients and therapists who have experienced a temperature to remain home until they have been fever free for 24 hours

We have also increased our disinfection routines including:

• Sanitizing all high-touch point areas including: light switches, doorknobs, faucets, chair handles, equipment, tables, etc.
• Cleaning and disinfecting all bathrooms including: surfaces, toilet seats, door handles, faucets, dispensers, etc.

Our increased sanitization procedures have helped ease the minds of parents who have continued to bring their kids in for therapy sessions. One of our parents has emphasized the superiority of being able to access hands on therapy safely, as compared to tele-therapy sessions her child received elsewhere:

Out East Therapy will do our best to keep your child healthy and safe while they are in the office. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time.

Out East Therapy offers exceptional, patient-centered occupational, physical and speech/language therapy for children. If you feel your child is struggling developmentally in any way, call OUT EAST THERAPY at 631-874-0571 for a consultation with one of our experienced therapists today.
