As we are closely monitoring the effects of COVID-19, Ochsner Therapy & Wellness has the following plans in place to continue to provide safe and effective care to all who need it while prioritizing the safety of our patients, staff and community, first and foremost:
- All appointments are being scheduled one-on-one with your therapist.
- Clinic schedules have been adjusted to include expanded hours of operation and staggered appointment times to limit the number of patients checking in and receiving therapy at any given time.
- Screening questions and temperature checks of all staff, patients and essential visitors will continue pre-visit and upon entry into any facility.
- Appointment text message reminders with screening information and guidance on what to do if you have symptoms will continue.
- All patients and staff are wearing masks. A mask will be provided to you prior to entering the facility if you do not have one of your own.
- Our waiting rooms and communal areas have been adapted to ensure social distancing can be maintained at all times.
- We have dedicated team members wearing designated shirts who are hourly disinfecting all treatment tables and waiting areas including communal spaces and highly touched/trafficked locations.
- All team members are disinfecting all therapy equipment between every patient use.
All locations are open for fully expanded hours of operation with the exception of the following programs/locations:
The Healthy Back Program and Functional Restoration Program located within Baptist hospital were closed on 3/18/20 in an abundance of caution. We are happy to report they are both re-opening on Monday, June 15. Patients whose appointments have been re-routed to other Therapy & Wellness locations will be contacted to resume therapy at these locations over the next week.
Our Therapy & Wellness clinic at Ochsner Health Center – Michoud located within the NASA facility is currently monitoring the situation closely. There will be more information to come on a re-opening date as soon as its available.
