To our patients – we wanted to send you all a message about preventative steps we’re taking here at Women’s Health Specialists during these challenging times of COVID-19. Keeping our patients and staff healthy is our first priority. In response to COVID-19:
1. Contact our office before arriving for a scheduled appointment if you have ANY of the following: a fever, cough or any respiratory symptoms; traveled in the last 14 days; or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 positive or is in the process of being tested for COVID-19.
2. Our front desk staff will contact every patient prior to scheduled appointments to conduct a health and travel screening.
3. In an effort to reduce traffic in our office, we are allowing only one essential adult visitor to accompany a patient to an appointment. If you do not have an essential need for a visitor, we strongly encourage you to come alone. No children will be allowed in our offices at this time.
4. Our waiting area has been rearranged to increase distance between patients and every patient will have a temperature taken upon arrival at Women’s Health Specialists.
5. At our locations, ThedaCare will be screening visitors at the front door prior to admittance into the building. Many local hospitals are reducing accessible entrances. You will need to enter through the main hospital entrance.
6. Local hospitals where our physicians deliver have implemented new visitor restrictions. Currently, no children are allowed. Only one adult visitor is allowed per hospital stay and the visitor must remain during the duration of the stay. Some hospitals have cancelled all OB-related classes. We encourage you to reach out to your delivering hospital for updates on visitor restrictions and classes.
Please visit the link below to read more on prevention including washing your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home if you’re sick, and covering your mouth with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Our staff will assist you in any way possible and we will continue to update you accordingly. Thank you!
