Fever? Cough? Shortness of Breath? Call us before you come in. Please help stop the spread of COVID-19

Important COVID-19 Update

Bone & Joint continues to do its part to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

To ensure community safety, while being mindful of healthcare resources and supplies, we have made the decision to cancel non-urgent surgeries and office visits. If you've not heard from our office and are inquiring about your prescheduled appointment, please call 800-445-6442.

Our Walk-in clinics will remain open, however, we will screen patients for urgency. 
Please call ahead, before coming in for assessment and direction.

Visits for the following are considered urgent (please call first and speak with a nurse):

  • Post-op patients especially within the first 10-14 days
  • Wounds
  • Concerns about complications (please call first and speak with a nurse)
  • Fractures
  • Lacerations (a deep or jagged cut)
  • New acute injuries including workplace injuries 

The leadership team is assessing the situation daily, following the CDC and Department of Health Services (DHS) recommendations. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.

 

You can help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Your health, the health of our staff, and the health of our community depend on it.

If you know you’ve been exposed to the highly contagious coronavirus, self-quarantine and let us and others know.

If you have a fever higher than 100.4 and a dry cough call your primary care doctor and ask what you should do.

If it’s hard to breathe, call 9-1-1.

Even with mild symptoms, you can still spread the disease which will be fatal for some.

Bone & Joint is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) guidelines for patient care to keep you, our employees, and our community as healthy as possible.

We’re screening patients for symptoms during pre-appointment calls and check-ins. We also are:

  • Asking employees and patients who feel sick to stay home,
  • Asking people who have been in close contact (6 feet or less) of someone who has tested positive to self-quarantine,
  • Aggressively cleaning and disinfecting all common-use surfaces in our clinics,
  • Washing our hands before and after patient visits, and
  • Coughing or sneezing into tissues or into our elbows to contain the spread of germs.

These are things we should all do to stop the spread of this disease.
