In-Office Occupational Therapy: Currently, our office is open on Tuesdays & Wednesdays and we are offering in-person occupational therapy on those days. The following precautions are being taken to protect the visitors, patients and staff:
A Kinera staff member will meet parents and children outside the facility upon arrival.
Children must utilize the hand sanitizing station prior to entering the building.
A Kinera staff member will take the child's temperature. Anyone with a temperature greater than 100.4 will not be allowed in the building.
All children and staff will be required to wear a face mask. If the patient doesn't have one, one will be provided for them.
Parents are encouraged to wait outside for the duration of the child's appointment. However, if they need to be in the building for any reason, a staff member will take their temperature to ensure it is normal and they are also required to must wear a mask.
Shoes must be left at the door
Any objects that have been in the child's mouth will be removed taken out of the rotation after their appointment and properly disinfected.
There is a 15-min block between appointments for cleaning and sanitizing gym equipment, floors, restrooms (Does not apply to sibling appointments)
