COVID-19 Office Procedures

The Canadian Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre is taking the following steps to keep patients & staff safe and to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19:

  1.  Requiring all those who enter to wear a face covering (eg. mask, scarf) during their visit
  2.  Encouraging social distancing of 6 feet as well as opening a second waiting room
  3.  Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting high touch areas such as door knobs, debit machines, chairs, counters, pens, handrails. This is in addition to the already stringent Infection Prevention & Control Policy
  4.  Substantially reducing the volume of patients seen and discouraging walk-ins
  5.  Removed magazines, toys, brochures, candy jar from the waiting area/reception
  6.  Installed hand hygiene station at entrance
  7.  Encouraging electronic forms of payment
  8.  Installed new sterilization centre to surpass the highest standards
  9.  Installed Plexiglass barriers at reception for staff/patient safety
  10.  Use of single front entrance and separate side exit
  11.  Removed upholstery chairs and replaced with easy clean chairs
  12.  Screening of staff for symptoms of COVID-19
  13.  Triple screening of patients for signs & symptoms of COVID-19
  14.  Declining to see patients who have screened positive for COVID-19 until cleared by Niagara Region Public Health
