K-TOWN Physiotherapy is now authorized by the Government of Ontario and the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario to provide in-clinic appointments.
There are a number of adjustments we have made to our protocols that will be followed to ensure client, staff and community safety with each visit.
Please review the following steps to be taken before, during and after each in-clinic appointment at K-TOWN Physiotherapy.
We appreciate your cooperation in following these standards as we conduct our best efforts to promote health and safety for all.
Prior to your appointment, over the phone we will conduct a short “Client Screening” questionnaire. This will ensure you are an appropriate candidate for an in-clinic appointment and are comfortable with the provisions we have made for your visit.
Upon arrival at the clinic, we ask that you review the screening questions posted prior to entering.
ARRIVAL AT THE CLINIC
When you arrive at the clinic, please wait outside the clinic or in your vehicle until 5 minutes prior to the time of your appointment.
Once entering the clinic rest assured our waiting area is arranged to maintain appropriate physical distancing between yourself, other clients and administrative team members.
Please arrive dressed for your appointment and leave all personal items (jackets, water bottles, travel mugs, backpacks, etc.) in your vehicle or at home.
Prior to entering the clinic we would request that you stop at the hand sanitizing station and sanitize your hands.
OTHERS IN YOUR APPOINTMENT
Please attend the clinic on your own with no guests unless you are under the age of 16 and require a parent/guardian OR if you would typically have someone with you for safety or mobility reasons.
If someone will be accompanying you to your appointment they will undergo the same screening questions and procedures.
It is recommended that all clients who enter our clinic are to be wearing a mask. You may bring your own mask with you, which can be either cloth or paper. A buff, bandana or scarf covering your face is also acceptable.
If you do not have a mask but wish to wear one we will have paper disposable and reusable 3-D printed masks with a one-time use filter that you may use.
Please note that our in-clinic washroom will be available for clinic team use only as we do our best to decrease touch points in the clinic. There are public washrooms now available in the foyer for client use.
You will be directed to your treatment area by your Physiotherapist or one of our Physiotherapy Assistants who will also be wearing masks.
Your appointment will primarily take place in the designated treatment area - only under very specific circumstances will clients be using our gym, however all gym equipment will be thoroughly sanitized after each client’s use.
This may mean that certain equipment and modalities will be brought into the treatment room for your use during the appointment - all equipment and modalities are also thoroughly sanitized after each client’s use.
AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT
Your Physiotherapist or one of our Physiotherapy Assistants will accompany you to the front desk to book any follow-up appointments.
The receptionist will process your payment using the POS terminal that is thoroughly sanitized after each client’s use - alternatively, we can take payment methods from you in advance of your appointment and then send an electronic receipt via email.
Any exercise program documentation will also be emailed to you.
You will then proceed to the exit and sanitize your hands once more on the way out.
If you have used one of our 3-D printed masks these may be placed in the waste-bin near the exit - please be sure to sanitize hands after removing a mask.
Thank you for your cooperation! You can book your next appointment here.
