At Stonebridge Pediatrics, we want you to feel safe and comfortable when you come to our office. We follow and exceed current CDC guidelines for infection control. New recommendations are implemented as they become available.
Here's a snapshot of what our office is doing:
Pre-Screening protocol- Before entering our office, all patients and accompanying persons are screened via a standardized questionnaire for any potential exposure to or symptoms of COVID-19.
Waiting rooms- Our well side waiting room is open for patients to use. Our sick side waiting room is currently closed. Sick patients are re-routed to our back parking lot where the caregiver will call the front desk to check in for the appointment, and the patient and caregiver will remain in their vehicle until the nurse calls the patient inside. We do this to help minimize germ exposure between patients. Sick visit patients and caregivers are required to wear masks.
Cleaning protocol- We currently use one side of the office for sick patients, and one side of the office for well visits. We have a thorough, systematic cleaning protocol that we use for all rooms between patients. All employees have been trained on this protocol to ensure consistent sanitizing of each room.
