Everyone has Coronavirus protocols, here are some of ours. Cleaning and separating sick and well patients is normal for us, we have been doing that for years. We are looking at streamlining our processes for ill children, stay tuned for more information.
Because children don’t seem to be asymptomatic carriers, we are seeing well visits. Well visits should come in to the waiting room and check in at the desk. The waiting room is for well visits only at this time.
If you are being seen for a visit other than a well visit the protocol changes. At our Children’s Hospital location we are seeing injuries and visits for illness. For those visits families should check in at the desk and then wait in the hallway and a nurse will move you to a room via the side entrance. Please wear a mask and have your child wear a mask as possible. We are wearing full PPE for any visit with COVID-19 symptoms.
For our Avista location we will continue to use the text message on arrival system. When you arrive for your appointment please text 720-522-8033 and someone will call with instructions. Please wear a mask and have your child wear a mask as possible. We will meet you at the side door and move straight to a room. We are still wearing full PPE for any ill visits that have COVID-19 symptoms.
Please bear with us as we work to keep you safe and thank you for your understanding.
